Warren County Public Health Encourages Receiving Flu Shot

Your mom was right Wash your hands and cover your mouth when sneezing helps stop the spread of disease

Here are some facts and clarifications on common misconceptions about the vaccine.

One clue to what might happen in the U.S.is how the flu season played out in the Southern Hemisphere during fall and winter there, said Grant McFadden, director of the ASU Biodesign Center for Immunotherapy, Vaccines and Virotherapy. Every year, up to 650,000 deaths are attributed to the flu worldwide, according to the World Health Organization.

Three weeks into this flu season, the Arizona Department of Health Services already had confirmed 96 cases, slightly above last year's numbers but close to three times the number of confirmed cases at this point in a typical year. "We are definitely higher than what we've seen for the average for this time of year".

Widespread success of new alternative therapies based on broadly neutralizing antibodies (bnAbs) has remained elusive, largely due to a similar lack of coverage between influenza A and B viral strains and to the need for multiple high-dose injections to maintain protection. You'll probably feel weak and exhausted, and have a fever, dry cough, runny nose, chills, muscle aches, severe headache, eye pain, and a sore throat.

Drivers like Ruthier Thomas took advantage of the opportunity to get her flu shot here.

A high-dose shot is available for seniors aged 65-plus, who are often at higher risk for severe complications from influenza, which in some cases can be fatal.

Liverpool - Premier League - 3 November 2018
However, former Liverpool FC star Murphy believes Lovren is a more than worthy third-choice centre-half in the Liverpool FC team. They say you don't notice something until it's gone, and that is a good thing at Arsenal this season.

Medical officials say getting the vaccine not only helps keep you from getting the virus but also helps stop it from spreading.

The side effects are mild and short lasting depending on if you get the flu shot or nasal spray, especially when compared to symptoms of bad case of flu. This is why you may develop the flu around the time you get a vaccine because you were exposed prior to getting the vaccine and were not protected at the time you got infected.

Myth: The flu vaccine is only necessary for the old and very young.

People can help protect the spread of flu by washing hands frequently and thoroughly, avoiding touching their eyes, nose and mouth with their hands and staying home when sick.

Grocery stores, pharmacies as well as doctor's offices and hospitals offer flu shots. But if you are going to get it, you should get it now.

If these preclinical findings translate into humans, the approach may be a powerful tool to fight flu in vulnerable populations now not covered by traditional vaccination.
