Roth said that every flu season is unique, and that is it hard to predict how the flu will impact people season to season-making it unclear if any season will be worse than others. Annual #vaccination is the best protection. Influenza vaccination should begin soon after vaccine becomes available. Providers can charge for an office visit or a vaccine administrative fee.

Every year over two thirds of those aged 65 and over and nearly half of people in at-risk groups in Wales get their flu jab.

No one wants to get the flu, which is marked by fever, aches and pains, congestion, fatigue and other symptoms. 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.

Mann also expressed concern about the rise in hospitalizations related to the flu, pointing out that "in Fond du Lac County alone previous year we had more than one-hundred hospitalizations for influenza, including some children. When the baby is born, they will have protection for the first six months through mom's antibodies". Doctors and health officials expect that the nasal spray flu vaccine could be an option for these people.

Flu season officially starts October 1. Certain people are more likely to have serious health problems if they get the flu.

"They are the strains that are recommended by the CDC and World Health Organization", said Heck. The Health Department is at 220 E. High St.in Hennepin. As the 2018-19 flu season approaches, medical staff respond to some common concerns about flu vaccinations and students explain what determines if they get vaccinated. This was sadly emphasised all too clearly during the influenza outbreak last winter. For questions about the flu shot program, contact Kyle Fannan, marketing development associate, at 732-719-1570. However, many people only reach for the drug when symptoms already have set in. In 1918, the flu killed an estimated 500,00 people in the US and millions more worldwide.

"I got my flu shot at the CVS inside Target because they accept my insurance so I don't have to pay, but the best part is if you get your flu shot there, they give you a $5 Target gift card", Spradling said.

Last flu season was the most deadly in years and Chicago public health advocates are urging residents to get vaccinated. The Student Health Service does not provide medical excuses.

Mark Griffiths, chair of Community Pharmacy Wales, said: "Community pharmacies across Wales are playing an increasing role in helping to vaccinate vulnerable people against flu in a convenient setting. It is impossible to say when we will peak each year". In Illinois, more than 2,300 were admitted to intensive care units for flu-related illness.

The flu is easily spread through coughing or sneezing and by touching something, such as a door knob, with the virus on it, and then touching their nose or mouth.
