Expectant mothers urged to have free flu vaccine

Someone receiving a flu shot

You can get a flu shot through your regular healthcare provider, the Fond du Lac County Health Department, or most other places that have a pharmacy. "Even an imperfect match provides important protection". The trivalent vaccine protects against three strains of the flu - an influenza A, or H1N1, virus; an influenza A, or H3N2, virus; and an influenza B virus. The CDC recommends that everybody over the age of six months gets vaccinated before the end of October because it's hard to predict when flu season will begin.

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 Health Department's immunization clinic along with other City-run clinics and hospitals provide no or low-priced flu vaccines to patients and visitors.

The flu has started its annual tradition of making people miserable, but it's far too early to know whether we'll see a repeat of last year's deadly season.

"I got it one time when I was working, I had to take it and got deathly ill", Smith said. "So if I got the flu shot today, it wouldn't be until mid-November that I'm actually protected against the flu", said Dr. Kerkering. Newhouse highlighted a vaccine called Flu Zone High Dose which is tailored for seniors because it helps strengthen their immune systems.

People who have an egg allergy may be at an increased risk of reaction to the the injectable flu vaccine because some flu vaccine are made using eggs.

The number one way to fight the flu is to get a flu vaccine every year. Pharmacists around Madison County are vaccinating people this flu season, however, North Florida Pharmacy, located at 139 SW Macon St., in Madison, is now administering free vaccinations for anyone over 18, with special doses for anyone over the age of 65. Parents of these children are being urged to get them vaccinated, as it not only helps to protect them, but it also reduces the likelihood of flu spreading to more vulnerable members of their family and the community. They beefed up the vaccine this year, so we're hoping that it's going to be more effective.

According to the CDC, other vaccines include live attenuated influenza [LAIV], adjuvanted vaccine, intradermal influenza (flu) vaccine, cell-based flu vaccine, flu vaccination by jet injector and recombinant influenza (flu) vaccine.

The CDC states that studies show 70 percent to 85 percent of seasonal flu-related deaths have occurred in people age 65 and older, with 54 percent to 70 percent of people in that age group hospitalized due to the seasonal flu.

"The flu vaccine can not cause the flu", she said.

The flu season peaks between December and January. There are two things I like to emphasize all year round but especially this time of year. Tankut suggests that you wash your hands for 20 seconds with soap and warm water.

Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. "Influenza can be the trigger for other complicated health issues".
