If you care for someone over 65 it's advisable to get vaccinated too, so that you can protect yourself and the person you care for.

Local pharmacies and physician offices are offering the flu vaccination daily.

The flu shot did not work well previous year as the vaccine only reduces a person's risk by 40 percent. The Healthy People 2020 goals include a target of 90% annual flu vaccine coverage for health care personnel.

Lincolnshire East Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is reminding anyone over the age of 65 to protect themselves against flu this winter with a free vaccination. It turned out that even though the normal vaccine is made in an egg-based culture, people who are allergic to eggs aren't allergic to the vaccine, she said. "Healthcare workers and caregivers are [not only] extra susceptible to the flu, but they are also highly likely to spread the flu to those they're around", Dr. Moore says.

Schleiss said people can't get the same flu strains that are present in the vaccine.

Flu rates have been "unseasonably low" in New Zealand this year but experts are warning that Kiwis aren't out of the woods just yet. Each year, millions of people are sickened, hundreds of thousands are hospitalized, and thousands to tens of thousands of people die from flu.

It's also important to understand the flu is different from a cold.

Medical professionals agree that if people are sick, they should avoid contact with others.

"Getting the flu vaccine is important for the health of all Manitobans, but especially for those at increased risk of serious illness from the flu, their caregivers, and close family and friends", said Friesen. After all, people who choose to opt out of the flu shot commonly blame the fact that the vaccination isn't always effective - which is true, but it's still better than not getting vaccinated at all. DE recorded more than 9,000 flu cases, with more than 1,200 hospitalizations and 35 flu-related deaths.

With the flu vaccine now available from GP practices, those eligible are advised to prioritise making an appointment to get vaccinated.

"Currently, vaccination is the best prevention of viral diseases".

After years of conducting the clinic at the Pine Bluff Convention Center, this year was the first year the clinic was held at the health unit's 2306 Riker Drive location, according to Jefferson County Health Unit Administrator Angela Parker.

"Things like beer pong are a great way to pass influenza", Golden added.
