Get Ready, Medical Folks Say Another 'Bad' Flu Season Coming

While vomiting, diarrhea, and being nauseous or "sick to your stomach" can sometimes be related to the flu - more commonly in children than adults - these problems are rarely the main symptoms of influenza. Pneumonia is a serious flu complication that can result from either influenza virus infection alone or from co-infection of flu virus and bacteria.

"We've got to try to do something about the messaging", said William Schaffner, medical director of the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases and an infectious diseases professor at Vanderbilt University. It cannot. It's a killed virus that just stimulates your immune system to make its own flu virus attack cells. "We did have one week a year ago where 46 people (in Wisconsin) died from the flu in one week".

Young children and senior citizens were hit the hardest by the flu.

On Monday, October 8th, the White County Health Units of the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) will offer flu vaccinations at both Beebe and Searcy from 8:00 to 4:30. A preliminary estimate showing last season's vaccine to be about 36 percent effective overall may have convinced some people not to bother, clinicians said.

Quadrivalent vaccine These flu vaccines protect against four strains of influenza-two strains of influenza A and two strains of influenza B. Including a second strain of influenza B provides broader protection. "We encourage everyone to come to the mass clinic or the local health unit to get their flu shot".

It eclipses the estimates for every flu season going back to the winter of 1976-1977. "The flu, they can be bad sometime", said Emma Ball, 75.

It's flu season again and experts recommend everyone six months and older get vaccinated now.

Medicago Inc., a biotechnology company, owns the first plant-based seasonal flu vaccine to reach late-stage clinical trials.

This year is the 100th anniversary of the worst pandemic in human history, the Spanish flu that killed 50 million to 100 million people during the winter of 1918-1919. "It's why many people feel wiped out for two weeks after stopping coughing". His office wants to help residents beat the flu by participating in its "Drive-thru Flu Clinic" being held on November 1st from 11 a.m.to 2 p.m.at the Calaveras County Government Center located at 891 Mountain Ranch Road in San Andreas.

"Last year was one of the most severe flu seasons on record for Washington, and data just released shows only 61 percent of Washington children and teens are vaccinated, ' Lofy added".

Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

And for people who don't like needles, the nasal spray vaccine is available this year.
