Flu season is fast approaching, and the best way to protect yourself and your family is to get a flu shot.

The NFID survey found that about 46 percent of college students typically get the flu vaccine. The Health Department is at 220 E. High St.in Hennepin. The Fairfield Health Department developed a video to help you have the power of the "Florce" this flu season. While not 100 percent effective, flu vaccines still provide a baseline level of protection, Martell said. Only after receiving one injection of the new universal flu vaccine, the animal subjects showed a strong immune response to different flu virus strains such as H5N1. Kids, adults, and seniors are better protected if they have the flu shot or nasal spray.

This delayed reaction may also contribute to ideas that vaccinations do not effectively prevent flu. The flu can lead to pneumonia or other complications. The flu virus doesn't discriminate, and even healthy people can become infected. "They all have fevers, chills, coughs".

According to Public Health Sciences Prof. "If you put it off - still get vaccinated, of course - but now is an excellent time to get vaccinated", Schffner said. According to the CDC, the 2017-2018 flu season was record breaking with more than 900,000 hospitalizations and more than 80,000 deaths. He said many fears about vaccine safety are "baseless" and that vaccination remains the most cost effective way to prevent numerous deadly, contagious diseases.

"The more people we get immunized the safer the population is", Hellerstedt said. King said these numbers don't include people who came to Lafene who received the vaccine while in a seperate care appointment.

For Schaffner, as we start heading deeper into the flu season, the main thing to keep in mind is get vaccinated - and tell your friends and family to do the same. Delivery of supplies of certain flu vaccines to GP practices and community pharmacies will be staggered between September and November.

Ignoring the recommendations has proved dangerousHowever, despite the annual vaccination recommendation from the National Board of Health, a total of 8,000 Danes had to be hospitalised during last year's flu season, and over 1,500 people died as a result of the virus.

There will be a Drive-Thru Flu Clinic this Thursday, Oct. 4th, from 9:00 a.m. -1:00 p.m.at the Sumner County Health Department, 217 W. 8th.

Residents are urged to receive flu vaccines by the end of October, before holiday events and parties begin.
