Are you getting a Flu Shot?

Are you getting a Flu Shot?

"Acute influenza initiates a systemic that is a whole body inflammatory reaction, this inflammation continues beyond the resolution of the acute illness". "This lingering inflammation can involve blood vessels, particularly the blood vessels to the heart and the brain".

"We don't know what this season will bring", she said.

A year ago was a unsafe one for those battling influenza.

High-dose vaccines As people age, their immune systems weaken, which means the elderly benefit less from a standard flu shot. However, its effectiveness depends on the public - last year, 35 percent of the state's population received a vaccine, he said.

This was the highest death toll and most severe flu season since 1976, according to officials, with more people being admitted to the hospital because of the flu. The 2017-2018 estimation of 80,000 flu deaths is record-breaking. Those 80,000 people who died past year from the flu? "If you've seen one flu season, you've seen one flu season".

In addition to the deaths, a record-breaking 900,000 people in the US were hospitalized previous year for flu-related complications, which include such life-threatening illnesses as pneumonia, sepsis, myocarditis (inflammation of the heart) and encephalitis (inflammation of the brain).

They speculate that some people decided that flu vaccines, which are never as effective as most other vaccines even in a good year, aren't worth the effort.

The shots are inactivated vaccines, meaning the virus is dead and can not cause influenza. But, of course, flu seasons are unpredictable. For another, the vaccine is your best chance at avoiding the unsafe flu.

Dr. William Schaffner, medical director for the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases, said that those who get flu after receiving vaccine are less likely to require hospitalization and they're less likely to die.

Vaccination decreases the risk of flu-related death. According to CDC data, 74 percent of the 172 pediatric deaths nationwide in 2017-18 involved children who did not receive vaccinations.

The worst flu season ever reported happened in 1918 when a pandemic claimed the lives of more than 500,000 Americans.

"The vaccine is not available under six months of age", Stevenson said.

"What is it that old and frail people often fear the most?". "After acute flu, recovery may not be complete".

"I'd like to see more people get vaccinated", Redfield told the AP at an event in NY. "Flu can knock down that first domino of progressive decline, progressive disability".

"Even young healthy people can get sick or die from the flu", says Koenig.

For more information: You can find more information about protecting yourself and your family from the flu at the websites for the MDH and the CDC. "It's their social responsibility to get vaccinated".

Contrary to popular belief, the flu vaccine cannot cause the flu.

According to the CDC, flu strains change every year and so vaccines must change to combat them.
