Return of USA flu season brings worries about a virulent replay

The New Zealand flu vaccine covers four of the viruses circulating globally including the Flu A

When to get vaccinated The CDC urges people to get their flu shots by the end of October.

The flu vaccine remains the best defence against flu and will be offered to around 2.5 million people this year, including those with health conditions, people aged 65 and over, pregnant women and children aged two-11.

But what's much more likely is that we will be hit by a flu bug known to us, one we could guard against with a short, albeit painful, jab.

"I'm exhausted of hearing people say, 'Well, I didn't get sick and I didn't get the flu shot.' Or, 'I don't like it, my arm hurts, '" said Adams.

Check with your physician, your county health department, or use the department's Flu Shot Locator to schedule your flu vaccine. And usually, the season of flu starts somewhere near November or in the first numbers of the next month. "You should do it for the babies and grandmothers who could get sick and die if they get the flu". It takes about two weeks for the vaccine to provide full protection.

"Flu vaccination will also be available from GP surgeries and local pharmacies offering the service and if you work in frontline health or social care speak to your employer about arrangements for you to get vaccinated".

SHS Health Educator Jeremy Garcia said the majority of students treated for the flu at the SHS a year ago had not received the vaccine. Those antibodies help protect us from influenza viruses if we come in contact with them later.

"It really exposed how vulnerable we are", said Amesh Adalja, a senior scholar at Johns Hopkins University Center for Health Security.

The CDC and other major medical groups recommend a flu vaccine for anyone six months of age or older, but some patients opt against it because of concerns about effectiveness or ingredients.

Don't let the warm weather fool you, flu season is on the way.

Optimally, the flu vaccine will prevent you from getting the flu, but that's just one important reason to get immunized.

This semester, 22-year-old geology major, Cody Dougherty-Wise, attended this event and received a free flu vaccine.

The Health Center encouraged students to receive the flu shot because "besides reducing illness and severity and getting the flu, it helps protect others who haven't been vaccinated or (those in) an at-risk population", Albert said. It comes down to the amount of the people the flu affects. What's more, CNN reported a study published last December determine the flu shot is safe for people egg allergies. The virus has a multitude of different strains, scientists and researchers are constantly updating the vaccination so it's most effective against the strain they've predicted will be most common in the coming season.
