Now is a good time to get a flu shot

Debbie Iles, the new director of nursing at the Highland County Health Department, told The Times-Gazette that now is the time to get a flu shot.

Slim said he was randomly selected to participate in the study, run by the Institute of Environmental Science and Research Limited (ESR), earlier in the year.

Figures on how many people have attended Global Positioning System and health centres to avail of this year's vaccination programme so far are now not available, explained the Public Health Agency (PHA).

On Thursday, the Oklahoma State Department of Health announced that seven patients have been hospitalized with the flu within the last week.

If you get the flu, you could very well pass it on to your children, elderly relatives, friends and work colleagues. The agency urges the public to get vaccinated before flu season reaches its peak.

Chandler mentioned effects such as school closings and monetary costs which resulted from the flu outbreak a year ago and expressed the health provider community's resolve to prevent that from happening again.

Now is the time to protect yourself by getting an influenza vaccine, public health officials said. Because if there is a chance that a simple shot will at least lessen my chances of getting the flu, isn't it worth it?

There's also the issue of where you get your shot, said Dr. Richard Zimmerman, a professor of family medicine at the University of Pittsburgh. There have already been cases of the flu in our area, and it takes a few weeks for the vaccination to reach its maximum effectiveness. However, if you are not able to get a flu shot at that date and time, you can contact Wagener for a flu shot. The report stated that a year ago, 80,000 people died from either the flu or flu-like symptoms.

Last year, 80,000 people died from the flu, which is the highest total ever recorded since seasonal flu-related deaths have been tracked.

Getting vaccinated is the best way to stop the spread of flu and prevent deaths. Shahab said research shows pregnant women are at higher risk of influenza complications, especially in the second and third trimester. The year vaccine protects you against the most prevalent strains.So fear the flu.

"With any medication or vaccine, people are going to have concerns", said Jean Moorjani, MD, a board-certified pediatrician at Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children. That means the flu could still creep up on you during that two-week waiting period.

Wash hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and warm water, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Stay home from work and school if you are sick. Avoid touching your face and eyes.
