With flu season upon us, Wayne State College Student Health will be giving free flu shots to WSC students on Tuesday, Oct. 30. But last season, vaccination coverage among adults was 37.1 percent, a decrease of 6.2 percentage points from the previous season.

Associated Student Government will also be in the Union Connections lounge, October 30-31, raising awareness about the importance of getting the flu vaccine and taking appropriate steps to keep the campus community healthy. This low number is even more concerning given that a year ago an people died across the United States from a particularly severe H3N2 strain of the flu.

This year, CDC officials are hoping to boost vaccine coverage by helping doctors and nurses make a strong case to their patients for a flu shot.

FOMO was a dominant Walgreen's survey result, as 82 percent of Americans say having the flu made them miss out on things they wanted to do.

The Allergy, Immunization & Travel clinic also has flu vaccines available.

Health officials confirmed the first flu death in Washington this season. And 80 percent of those children who died past year along with the recent pediatric death had not been vaccinated.

On an adjusted basis, Snap lost 12 USA cents per share, while analysts were expecting a loss of 14 United States cents per share. The company's stock fell as low as $6.14 following the report, after rising 6.1 percent to close at $6.99 in NY .

Early flu watch indicators suggest many people may have less immunity to this year's potential influenza strain, said Lynora Saxinger, an infectious diseases expert at the University of Alberta.

It takes about two weeks after getting a flu shot for the body to generate a full immune response.

"You may not think the flu shot is worth it for you, but do you want to risk infecting someone else who could die from the illness?" she said.

"The 2018-19 flu season is kicking off: in Alberta so far there are 83 cases of influenza, with Calgary now having the most at 30 cases", she said.

You might even consider getting the vaccine to be a civic duty.

But to get the most benefits, the medicine needs to be taken within 48 hours of becoming sick with flu symptoms. It is not a conspiracy for doctors to recommend the flu vaccine. Precautions such as staying at home when you are sick, covering your mouth and nose when you cough and sneeze, using and properly disposing of tissues, and washing your hands are important measures to help reduce the spread of serious respiratory illnesses.

Why Singapore fits in with Dyson's electric dream
The company made an announcement recently saying the new plant would be ready by 2020, before the launch of the new vehicle project in 2021.

Antiviral medication can help you feel better if you contract the flu, but it must be started early in your illness, so call your health provider when symptoms begin.

"With any medication or vaccine, people are going to have concerns", Dr. Jean Moorjani, a board-certified pediatrician at Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, said in a news release.

Remember that getting the vaccine will not give you the flu.

The flu vaccine is updated annually to match the flu virus strains that are predicted to spread.

Other ways to prevent the flu is avoid touching the face, clean and disinfect surfaces that are frequently touched, and get plenty of sleep.
