Keep nasty flu bug at bay, get vaccinated!

Keep nasty flu bug at bay, get vaccinated!

The state says common flu symptoms include fever, cough, body aches and fatigue.

"The best way to safeguard yourself from the serious health risks posed by the flu virus, is to quite simply, get vaccinated", said Oneida County Executive Anthony J. Picente Jr.

Despite this conflicting advice, Public Health Solutions in Crete says some immunization is better than none, and predicting the timing of the flu is hard.

And no, regardless of the myth that is so often heard at this time of the year, the flu vaccine doesn't cause those who take it to develop influenza.

That may be just as well, since the annual survey, conducted online by Harris Poll on behalf of CVS Pharmacy [1], found that two-thirds of those surveyed get a flu vaccine every year or plan to get one this year, a 5 percent increase from last year.

At a news conference Wednesday, Haselow and Jennifer Dillaha, medical director for the department's immunization program, urged Arkansans to get flu shots to protect them from the approaching season, which typically starts in October. "So there is supposedly a back order of the flu shot", says nurse practitioner Krista Jones, "I know bigger facilities probably don't have trouble getting them".

Chris Smalling says away wins have given Manchester United confidence
The report further states that the Serie A giants do not want to sell Perisic as the Croatian is one of their best players. Marcus Rashford will start against the side who last season became the Swiss champions for the first time since 1986.

More than 200 feared drowned in Tanzania ferry disaster

Courtney Hadwin eliminated from America's Got Talent
"I can not tell you how much I love you for what you did for this man", Cowell said after Ketter's incredible appearance. Courtney was just 13 when she performed in the first round of America's Got Talent .

A Centers for Disease Control doctor cautioned that the last flu season proved to be one of the deadliest.

Schippert also noted that the flu vaccine that will be administered at public clinics this year is a quadrivalent vaccine, which offers protection against four strains of flu.

The department will bill a patient's health insurance for the vaccine, but the patient will not have to pay out of pocket. "Should you become infected your case of the flu will be milder because you had a flu shot".

"There are several different flu viruses". People are advised to get shots now as the vaccine takes two weeks to start working. That's why it's better to get vaccinated in September or early October before the flu season really kicks in.

HealthWatch Home Health will be offering Flu Shots at the Senior Center of Finney County, 907 N. 10th St., on from 11 a.m.to 1 p.m. Thursday.

Regular flu shots are $29 and high-dose flu shots - made especially to protect those 65 and older - are $55.
