It’s Not Too Late To Vaccinate
"We are expecting to start seeing more cases of the flu in the coming weeks as people are around more people than usual for holiday shopping, gatherings and travel", according to Dr. Jean Kutner, chief medical officer at UCHealth University of Colorado Hospital. And there's other people in our state and communities who have elderly grandparents or parents, or even young children. Webby, who was not involved in the NORC survey, said vaccination rates are similar to those of years in which flu activity has been widespread and illness severe for many people.
Many people who didn't vaccinate a year ago had heard that the vaccine was only about 10 percent effective.
While the vaccine is not flawless, it greatly reduces the chances of getting the flu and lessens the severity should one get ill. "It is possible to have the flu a few times in the season".
The Iroquois County Public Health Department, located in the Administrative Center at 1001 E. Grant St.in Watseka, has flu vaccines available to the public on a walk-in basis from 9 a.m.to noon and 1 p.m.to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Among those who visited a doctor's office, just 2.2% said the reason for their visit was flu-like illness; this is considered a normal rate for this time of year, according to the CDC.
"Each year, the flu vaccine must be reformulated to ensure it is effective".
Serious reactions to the flu vaccine are rare. But why is it important to get the shot, especially if you're not in any risk groups? What can they say to get visitors to get vaccinated?
Health specialists are highly encouraging everyone to get vaccinated if they haven't already.
To avoid getting sick, the department suggested, get a flu vaccine, wash hands often, cough or sneeze into tissues, clean shared surfaces, and avoid people who are sick with the flu. People who have a severe allergy to the flu vaccine or any of its ingredients should not get the flu vaccine.
The Clover Health Flu Shot Monitor included key findings for New Jersey. It is imperative that they get the flu vaccine so that they do not spread the flu to the patient, who will likely not be able to fight it and is at serious risk for complications, including death.
Along with primary providers and local pharmacies, Borgen also said the county Department of Health administers flu shots, typically on Mondays.
The flu shot is safe for pregnant and breastfeeding women, who can pass on antibodies to their babies that will help protect them.
Flu vaccines are not 100% effective, and sometimes the strain of flu circulating is not a ideal match for the flu strains in the flu vaccine.
"That's the strain that's a little bit better match to our vaccine", he said. "I also refer them to the Centers for Disease Control website, cdc.gov, which provides up to date information for healthcare providers and the public", said Mayer.
