Flu On The Rise In Tri

Flu Shot Bermud Dec 26 2017

It's a pretty simple fix; get your flu vaccine.

The flu is made up of various strands of the virus and, another round of the flu is about to descend.

During last year's flu season, 4,590 cases of flu were reported, about half of which were from New Castle County. It can cause mild to severe illness and can lead to hospitalization and death.

"Getting a flu shot is the best way to protect yourself and your family against the flu, and with the disease spreading quickly in Arizona the time to get vaccinated is now", said Dr. Cara Christ, director of the Arizona Department of Health Services.

In the 2014-15 flu season, which resulted in a recent high of 97 fatalities, there were around 600 cases and no fatalities at this point.

Concern that there's a link between autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and the vaccine preservative thimerosal has prevented some parents from getting their children vaccinated.

For more information regarding the flu and vaccine, contact the Rowan County Health Center at 784-8954.

Pennsylvania is now labeled as widespread by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which means there are flu outbreaks in at least half of the regions in the state.

Experts expect the number of patients with flu-like symptoms in IL to increase within the next week, Hafiz said.

Flu vaccines are also safe for anyone six months of age and older and are recommended annually, with some rare exceptions.

Business leaders also can help increase employee participation in on-site flu shot clinics by educating their workplace on the importance of the flu shot and helping to dispel common misconceptions associated with the shot. Reports from Australia, where flu season has ended, found the protection to be as low as 10 percent. It's never too late to get a shot. "The flu vaccine has definitely gotten not the best publicity, and deservedly so", he said.

The flu shot will make me sick. Many health plans cover the cost of the vaccine with no copay. However, those in high-risk groups like the elderly or the very very young might need to see the doctor and a prescription.
