Free flu shot drive-thru clinics planned in Douglas County

Health officials are urging all Americans over six months old to get a flu shot now as flu activity is expected to pick up by next month. The flu vaccine doesn't prevent against all flu-causing viruses, but it is formulated to protect against the most common ones.

Dr. Kerkering says hand washing is also key in staying healthy during flu season.

The specific strains of flu virus that are most prominent change year over year, according to the CDC.

Chief Medical Officer Dr Michael McBride said, "Each year the national expert immunisation group assesses worldwide evidence to determine the most effective flu vaccines available".

People at high risk of serious flu complications include young children, pregnant women, people with certain chronic health conditions like asthma, diabetes or heart and lung disease and people 65 years and older.

In online photos, Google employees could be seen making protest signs that read "Respect for Women" and 'Not Ok, Google'. Meanwhile, regular employees who are harassed allegedly have little recourse against powerful higher-ups.

In a 2011 University of MI study, scientists infected 17 healthy people with the flu virus and found that they all contracted the illness, but only half suffered from the symptoms.

Catching the flu is not only uncomfortable; it can be unsafe, especially if you already have a weakened immune system. You may experience a few mild symptoms after getting a flu shot, but these symptoms are not the flu itself.

Parents and guardians of young children should also be aware that all children between the ages of 6 months and 59 months attending a City-licensed day care, Head Start, pre-K or nursery school must receive one dose of influenza vaccine between July 1 and December 31 of each year. Last year, they didn't approve the live attenuated vaccine, which is a nasal spray and this year they did.

This might not happen when you get the flu vaccine and have a fever, but these are possibilities. "No matter what type of flu you get, it can be quite severe for many people and especially if you're somebody who's at risk for complications of influenza".

Democrats, Some Republicans Blast Trump Ad As Racially Charged
That ad was part of a blitz by Mr Trump's campaign, and his campaign manager, Brad Parscale, did several interviews to promote it. TV news outlets spent last night and this morning comparing the video to one used so effectively in 1988 by George H.W.

But as the country moves closer to winter, Canadians can expect the sounds of sneezing and hacking to ratchet up as the annual flu fest gets fully underway, say public health physicians, who would like to see the number of Canadians laid low by the virus dramatically curtailed.

"As long as the Pharmacy is open and the patient is seven years old or over, the flu vaccine is available to them", she said. Flu makes a person feel much worse as compared to a cold.

"The flu vaccine can not cause the flu", she said.

The flu season has not yet hit hard. If there's a lot of flu in the community during flu season and you're presenting with symptoms, your doctor might decide to treat you without confirming you have the flu. There are two things I like to emphasize all year round but especially this time of year. Cough or sneeze into your sleeve, don't store tissues. Tankut suggests that you wash your hands for 20 seconds with soap and warm water. "Influenza can be the trigger for other complicated health issues".
