Local doctor stresses importance of flu shot

Someone receiving a flu shot

Bottom line: Don't forget your flu shot this year!

Do I need an antibiotic for the flu? If you do catch a bug, you'll recover faster by resting at home - and you'll help keep the virus from spreading to others, too. "It is safe in any trimester and offers protection to babies by generating antibodies in pregnant women". Relenza is approved for patients 5 years old and older, but might not be appropriate for patients with lung disease like asthma.

For more information about scheduling an appointment for a flu vaccine, contact the Bartow County Health Department - located at 100 Zena Drive in Cartersville - at 770-382-1920.

"The flu is here in ME already, which is unusual for us". That's important.Do you know why fewer people got flu shots a year ago? Acetaminophen and ibuprofen will help with the muscle aches and headaches that often occur. People say it'll cut down symptoms by about a day or two, but, of course, if you have influenza, another day of grace is great.

The quadrivalent flu vaccine is a shot now being administered by North Florida Pharmacy and Winn-Dixie for anyone age 18 and older. "Most places are going to be primarily stocking the quadrivalent", he says.

Kim Kardashian Apologizes For Saying ‘Retarded’ in Instagram Video Amid Criticism
Kim deleted the video in which she used the R-word and issued an apology statement to Us Weekly . The star said to her ex-assistant, Stephanie Shepherd , "nobody knows who I am".

What is the difference between the flu and a cold? Symptoms can be vague making it hard sometimes to know the difference. Now, you could have an immune response - so by giving this to you, you could have a low-grade fever. If you get the flu in the second and third trimester, it can hurt the child and the mother. "You want to get this vaccine because it covers against more strains".

Wednesday, October 31, 2018 04:59PMAccording to the website FluNearYou.org, the CDC is reporting low flu activity across the country in the last seven days, but that doesn't mean people here in the Triangle are flu-free.There have been five cases at WakeMed Hospital and various Urgent Cares have seen a couple of cases as well. The quadrivalent vaccine, meanwhile, protects against four strains: all of the strains in the trivalent vaccine, plus an additional B virus strain. And then sometimes the vaccine may not be all that effective for some people. I would always recommend getting an influenza vaccine every year. Younger children and adults 65 and older are at an increased risk of getting the flu, according to health professionals. Most of us don't think about the flu as being a deadly disease but it can be. The more people in a community or a population who get immunized, the more it slows down the spread of influenza. There are many options for where and how to get vaccinated - even if you don't like needles there are alternatives.

Viruses of the flu travel through air in droplets when an infected person coughs, talks or sneezes. Throw them out and wash your hands. I know it wasn't from the shot because outside of the live attenuated nasal spray, all the other vaccines do not contain live virus. These are such simple measures they may not seem like much but they have a great effect on reducing the spread of the virus.

Between Oct. 7-13, there were 64 lab-confirmed cases of the flu across the state, according to the New York State Department of Health.
