High dose flu vaccines recommended for seniors

High dose flu vaccines recommended for seniors

It is a serious condition especially for infants, young children, pregnant women and adults over 65. The symptoms of Influenza start to show two days after exposure to the virus: a cough, sore throat, runny nose or blockage, body and muscle aches, headaches, tiredness, vomiting and diarrhoea in some people and especially in children. People with certain health conditions or weakened immune systems are at greatest risk.

In California, an 86-year-old San Diego County man died on October 1, 2017, after being hospitalized with complications from the flu.

With Influenza season just beginning across much of the USA, health experts are warning the country may not be prepared for a major outbreak of the virus.

Influenza (flu) vaccine can reduce your chances of getting influenza, or it can make influenza less severe if you do get it.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases told CNN that "in general, we get in our season what the Southern Hemisphere got in the season immediately preceding us and an intelligent guess" is that North America will most likely have a bad flu season.

As a semi-tropical country, seasonal influenza viruses continue to appear throughout the year in the Sultanate. These include life- threatening allergic reactions to a previous dose of the flu vaccine ingredient in the vaccine.

"Getting vaccinated is the best protection against flu illness", said CDPH state health officer Karen Smith, MD. The vaccine protects against several flu strains.

Once again, the Webster County Health Unit is urging residents to get an annual influenza vaccination to protect against seasonal flu.

Wednesday morning, the 6 In The Morning crew took time to get their flu shots while they were on the air. Flu shots are available at your primary care provider's office and many local pharmacies.

The HHSA is sponsoring several free flu-shot clinics this month. Call ahead to know what your clinic's policy is.
