Fears over flu vaccine supply

The truth about the side effects of flu vaccine - AOL

A year later, at the close of the 2017-2018 season, the vaccination rate increased from 77 percent to 85 percent. The shot protects from the flu and helps to prevent the spread of the flu.

The flu vaccine should be compulsory for all healthcare professionals working in high-risk areas such as emergency departments and cancer wards, experts have said.

Getting it every year will keep you better protected, as well as help keep the populations most vulnerable to the flu - children and the elderly - safe through herd immunity.

The child's death was reported to the CDC during the week of Oct 13 and was linked to an unsubtyped influenza A virus.

According to the official figures, of those who ended up in hospital with the flu, 119 people were critically ill and needed intensive care, and 22 of those people died.

An estimated 80,000 adults nationwide died from the flu past year and 80 percent of pediatric deaths were in children who were not vaccinated against the flu. If people experience flu-like symptoms after getting the shot, it's possible that the shot didn't work, or that you didn't get the shot early enough.

"The nasal spray contains a live virus", says Urrutia.

In addition, if you are exposed to someone else who has the flu virus, you may not get sick, but you can pass on the virus to others.

The out of pocket cost for a flu vaccine is $30. "You can get side effects, body aches low grade fever, but that is expected". It is best to get vaccinated before the influenza virus starts circulating in your community.

But it takes two weeks for your body to build up flu-fighting antibodies after you get the shot, so you may get sick during that time period. However, if you are not able to get a flu shot at that date and time, you can contact Wagener for a flu shot.

"If you are entitled to a free vaccine, that is because you need it".

It's hard to predict how severe the flu season will be this year, Lin said.

The Scottish Government has been criticised over a shortage of new "enhanced" flu vaccines, which means only over-75s will receive the advanced formula.

The flu vaccine is available for free to Ontario residents over 6-months old.

He also added, "We are working on the possibility on what we call a universal influenza vaccine, which would be a vaccine to induce a response against all forms of the flu, even that which changes from year to year". Hand washing also is important, especially after shaking someone's hands.

Taege pointed out the flu can be much more risky than a simple cold.
