Ways to prevent getting the flu this season

Sweden's National Health Agency warns of flu vaccine shortages Flu striking more than usual in Windsor and Essex County this year

The mild season is a dramatic shift from the previous flu season, which was the deadliest in decades, with more than 80,000 flu-related deaths in the United States.

The backfire-effect occurs when efforts to provide people with information which challenges their prior beliefs can actually make them more resistant to taking action based on that information. But last year's season ended up one of most severe on record, health officials have said. Flu vaccines keep detrimental symptoms at bay and emergency rooms less crowded. Now that the new flu season is already underway, the medical community is still urging the unvaccinated members of the public to get immunized.

Influenza awareness Week on December 2-8 educates military personnel about the potential impacts of influenza, or the flu, on the Department of Defense (DoD) mission and our Force Health Protection Readiness.

A new survey released by Clover Health reveals that just 66 percent of New Jersey seniors have gotten a flu shot so far this season. "Now is the time to get a flu shot and protect yourself from a serious illness", said Dr.

Early rates of flu-like illnesses this season appear similar to those rates from a year ago. If, however, you have symptoms of flu and are in a high risk group, are very sick or anxious about your illness, contact your health care provider. That's not as high as the measles vaccine, but it still amounts to millions of cases of flu that should not have happened. Furthermore, the vaccine's side effects are minor, and it does not cause the flu, as is believed by 31 percent of those who are not planning to get the flu vaccine. "With healthcare personnel influenza vaccination rates of 98 percent for two years straight; these results are evidence that healthcare personnel at Kaweah Delta are concerned about the patients they care for".

Health specialists are highly encouraging everyone to get vaccinated if they haven't already.

Fact: The flu vaccine reduces the risk of contracting and spreading the disease by up to 60 percent, according to the CDC.

Myth: Flu shots don't really work.

Influenza vaccination coverage among health care personnel is an important measure of a hospital's health care quality, according to CDPH. "And how many people in that age group have young kids or have elderly parents?"

The agency can bill Medicare and most insurance companies for the flu vaccine.

According to the release, the incident occured at the end of the Cavaliers' 99-97 victory over the Brooklyn Nights on December 3. Thompson joins Kevin Durant and Patrick Beverly as the latest player to be docked for inappropriate interactions with fans.

What about those who say that they've gotten the flu shot in the past and still gotten the flu?

The two main factors in the effectiveness of the vaccine is the health of the patient and the match between the influenza viruses that the influenza vaccine is created to protect against and the influenza viruses spreading in the community.

"That's the strain that's a little bit better match to our vaccine", he said.
