Arkansas Health Department Prepares For Flu Season

Schippert said there is still a small percentage of the population that believes you can get the flu from the flu shot.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention does not recommend any influenza vaccine over another as "preferred".

MoHP-Health Centres/Clinics/Public Health assistant undersecretary Dr Hussain Abdulrahman Al Rand issued the reminder on Wednesday at the launch of the annual "Get the Vaccine, Not the Flu" national awareness campaign.

Officials are encouraging people to get flu shots as soon as possible. Being vaccinated significantly reduces a child's risk of dying from the flu, according to a 2017 CDC study.

Attention all students, flu season is here!

The percentage who get vaccinated at a pharmacy stayed at 22 percent, but the percentage of employed adults who get vaccinated at their workplace fell from 22 percent to 15 percent while those who got vaccinated by a health care professional rose from 44 percent to 48 percent.

"There is no live virus in the flu vaccines we provide", Schippert said.

This is the same reason doctors recommend you get vaccinated in early fall instead of waiting until peak flu season to get protected.

But not having enough time isn't a good one in Glynn County anymore. As we age, our immune system weakens.

The nasal spray "contains a weakened virus that does not cause influenza infection".

Kaiser Permanente will open all seasonal flu clinics throughout Southern California on Saturday, Sept. 22, and urges all members to get their no-cost vaccinations early.

The trivalent vaccine targets three strains of the flu, while the quadrivalent targets four strains.

Epidemiologist supervisor Luis Cerda says the Laredo Health Department is making sure that the flu shots are available at both school districts in the coming weeks.

If you haven't yet received any pneumococcal vaccine you should get the Prevnar 13 first, followed by Pneumovax 23 six to 12 months later. The vaccine is also approved for use in non-pregnant women up to age 49, unless your doctor warns against its use depending on your medical history. The vaccines we utilize today are approved by the Food and Drug Administration and are very safe.
