Florida child dies after contracting flu, state health officials confirm

Research results encourage pregnant women to ...

Last year the flu had one of its deadliest years in recent decades, with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reporting more than 80,000 fatalities in the 2018-18 flu season. Healthy Schools, founded by former Jacksonville Jaguars player Tony Boselli, said the clinics are getting back on track, offering in-school flu shots to students in the district. This changes annually, which, along with waning immunity, is why it's recommended that you get a flu shot every year. Women who got vaccinated are also saving their children from the flu before and after birth.

"It's a very easy process; we set up everything", he said.

The vaccine is free for all Albertans aged six months and older. They need two doses, given at least four weeks apart if it's their first time getting vaccinated.

Health experts emphasize a flu shot is the best way to protect against the virus but some parents are still skeptical or misinformed about the vaccine.

"The theme of the influenza vaccine campaign this year is Fight Flu".

Last year's influenza outbreak might be a reason some groups are going on the offensive this year. "The chances are the flu vaccine will lessen the severity of the cold". The first flu death has already been reported.

"It takes time for your body to get strong and ready for flu season, which is why we recommend everybody get the shot as soon as they can". Study sites retrospectively examined medical records of more than two million women who were pregnant from 2010 through 2016 to identify those who were hospitalized with laboratory-confirmed flu. Lomax says the vaccine prevents catching the flu, but if a person does happen to get sick.

Some people do get achy and exhausted after getting the vaccine but that's usually just the immune system mounting a response.
