Temple Fights Flu Season One Shot at a Time

The truth about the side effects of flu vaccine - AOL Taiwan CDC urges the public to get a flu shot...

If your child can not have a vaccine, the flu mist is back this year.

As cold weather settles in, Downriver residents can protect themselves from the flu by receiving a flu shot at an upcoming Community Flu Shot Clinic, sponsored by Henry Ford Wyandotte Hospital.

We're coming off a deadly flu season. Shahab said the number of people getting it has been increasing in recent years. Some have medical reasons for being unable to have the shot, but others go without by choice. Why? Try to get seven to nine hours of sleep every night and practice good hygiene by frequently washing your hands.

But these myths can be harmful if they lead people to avoid the vaccine unnecessarily.

Looking at weather patterns and using statistics and other data, health professionals make an educated guess of which strains will be the most contagious during each flu season, Lin explained.

Influenza is a seasonal contagious respiratory illness, which can be caused by influenza A or B viruses.

The vaccine reduces the severity of flu symptoms for those who may get sick, and reduces hospital-based Intensive Care Unit admissions related to the flu. This includes young children, pregnant women, people 65 and older and people with certain medical conditions, like asthma, diabetes or heart disease.

An alternative form of the flu vaccine will be available for children who are unable to have the nasal spray. Do you care for an elderly relative or a chronically sick friend?

The flu jab will also be offered to all frontline care staff who are directly employed and those services commissioned by the County Council.

Kids who've received a flu vaccine in the past only need one dose going forward.

While reactions to the flu shot may include a low-grade fever or muscle aches, the vaccine can not cause the flu virus. This is unequivocally false.

He also added, "We are working on the possibility on what we call a universal influenza vaccine, which would be a vaccine to induce a response against all forms of the flu, even that which changes from year to year".

The flu shot takes about two weeks to take full protective effect.

For students, getting a flu shot is convenient.

The Scottish Government has been criticised over a shortage of new "enhanced" flu vaccines, which means only over-75s will receive the advanced formula.

Taege pointed out the flu can be much more risky than a simple cold.

Getting the flu vaccine is simple, and it's the most important thing you can do to protect yourself and your family.

During the October 15 event, Deputy Minister of Health and Welfare Lu Pau-ching (呂寶靜) said the government had ordered about 6 million doses of flu vaccine this year to provide immunization to a quarter of the population.
