Flu deaths go up in Fayette County

Flu vaccine may protect against heart attacks

The panel will hold discussions and then vote on whether or not to recommend Flu Mist next year.

The company said limited quantities of the vaccine continue to be available for the current season. Last year, the panel did not recommend FluMist because it lacked effectiveness.

"This is not an easy decision".

This latest information comes on the heels of a study last month that says people are six times more likely to have a heart attack within a week of catching the flu.

FluMist is the only spray-in-the-nose vaccine on the market.

Freestyle skiing: gold for Cassie Sharpe half-moon
Watching her good friend Annalisa Drew bump her off the Olympic podium with her last run made Brita Sigourney sick to her stomach. That run gave Martinod her second straight Olympic silver medal in what will likely be one of the final contests of her career.

Gregory Keenan, vice president of USA medical affairs for AstraZeneca, said in a statement that the ACIP's decision "validates the improvements we've made to our strain selection process and confirms an improved H1N1 LAIV strain was included in the 2017-2018 formulation". Unlike shots made from a killed virus, it is made from a live but weakened flu virus.

Previous studies have shown similar results, although this is the first study to analyze hospitalizations and deaths through 6 months of life and to include all types of flu vaccines, the authors wrote. It remained on the market, but for the past two winters federal officials have not been recommending that doctors give it. Additionally, the vaccine effectiveness for A (H3N2) has generally been lower than other strains.

"Flu season is as much a part of winter in ME as skiing or snowmobiling", King said.

Some experts at the meeting anxious the panel's decision could further damage public confidence in flu vaccines.
