Flu season is on its way

5 ways to prepare for the upcoming flu season

"If we have a not very bad flu season, people think flu season wasn't bad, I don't need a flu shot".

Chief nurse for NHS England Professor Jane Cummings said that "myths" persist around the flu vaccine, with the "big one" being that it gives people the flu. People should receive a flu shot by the end of October, the CDC advises.

According to the CDC, getting the flu shot is the most important step you can take against protecting yourself from the flu, especially since it protects you from three or four of the most common flu virus strains.

"This year we would once again call upon as many of our staff as possible to get vaccinated as this scheme helps to protect them, as well as our patients, from flu", they said.

Jones says the vaccine is now available.

Example: 1 year your child gets 2 flu shots, from then on he/she only needs one flu shot per year.

Every fall and winter the flu season returns and can last up to six or seven months. - The intradermal flu vaccine, a shot injected into the pores and skin as a substitute of the muscle using a smaller needle than the everyday flu shot and requiring much less antigen to be as tremendous because the everyday flu shot, also can now no longer be available this season.

But the CDC reports that there are several new things this season. For anyone who is concerned about this remember that flu does not generally circulate until well into the winter (the "flu season" officially starts in December) so waiting until October for your flu vaccination does not put you at increased risk.

Flu vaccines have been updated to better match now circulating viruses. The B/Victoria component became changed and the influenza A (H3N2) component became updated. - All LAIV vaccines will possible be quadrivalent, created to present protection to in opposition to 4 a number of flu viruses: two influenza A viruses and two influenza B viruses. The vaccine is also approved for use in non-pregnant women up to age 49, unless a doctor warns against its use depending on medical history.

Cell-grown flu vaccine will be quadrivalent. "All recombinant vaccine will be quadrivalent". For this vaccine, the influenza A (H3N2) and both influenza B reference viruses will be cell-derived, and the influenza A (H1N1) will be egg-derived.

From now through November, St. Luke's primary care clinics have flu shots available during regular clinic hours.

The age recommendation for Afluria Quadrivalent, an inactivated influenza vaccine, was changed from 18 years and older to 5 years and older.
