McHenry County Department of Health encourages flu shots

Flu season has arrived and the Auglaize County Health Department is ready to distribute vaccine shots to help protect local residents from the illness. "One year it might be a great match to what is in the flu vaccine, and other years we may see it drift a little bit", Aigner said.

Harborview Medical Center has already treated one case of the flu this year.

High severity refers to high influenza-related hospitalization, high levels of outpatient clinic and emergency department visits for the disease. The newspaper reports this year's vaccinations are thought to be better matched to the strains that will be circulating as opposed to last year's vaccinations. It is possible to have the flu and spread it before showing symptoms.

Fee flu shots will be offered to the public starting September 28 at several libraries throughout the county. "It's never too early to get a flu shot, as we cannot accurately predict when the influenza season will begin, but it can be too late".

There are, of course, several things wrong with the idea that vaccines cause the illnesses they are manufactured to prevent.

Pregnant women and those with a chronic health condition are also considered high-risk for complications from influenza.

Because CDC wants people protected if flu breaks out early, "October as a rule of thumb is not unreasonable", she said. People are advised to get shots now as the vaccine takes two weeks to start working.

Parents can contact their school nurses for more information on flu vaccination clinics. "No trivalent recombinant vaccine will be available this season", the CDC said. Flu shots, as well as other vaccines, will be available during regular clinic hours, on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, noon to 4:30pm.

It's flu shot season, but the pinch of a shot doesn't have to also hurt your wallet.

Vaccines are specifically created to protect you from the flu without exposing you to a virus that will make you sick.

Though the injectable vaccine is preferred, federal health officials have approved the use of a nasal spray flu vaccine this season. "So those of us that are healthy individuals, to be able to get it, will protect those individuals that are not able to receive the vaccine".
