Influenza immunizations shows your commitment to protect others' health

The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority says improved access to nurse practitioners and family physicians has resulted in an increase in people utilizing other options to obtain the influenza vaccine. "If they do not have insurance, or the insurance does not cover flu shots, the vaccine will be available at no charge". After decreases during the 2015-2016 season among adults age 50 to 64 years and 65 years and older, vaccination coverage rates rebounded in the 2016-2017 season.

(NFID), along with public health and medical organizations, urged the public and healthcare professionals to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendation that everyone age 6 months and older be vaccinated against influenza each year.

Federal health officials Thursday urged Americans to get vaccinated before flu season starts in October, and released data showing fewer MI residents got flu shots past year than the national average. Then they examined how well the inoculation was working by measuring the amount of influenza antibody in the blood at 4 weeks and 16 weeks after the vaccination.

As many as 166 million doses of injectable flu vaccines will be available this season.

The flu shot, of course, is not flawless, as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says getting vaccinated reduces the chance of catching the flu by 40 to 60 percent.

On Thursday, the CDC also launched its seasonal flu vaccine campaign. The investigators now plan to conduct clinical trials, to attempt to show whether good mood definitely cause flu vaccines to work better in older people.


In fact, when the researchers looked at influences on the day of vaccination itself, they found an even greater effect on how well it worked, accounting for between 8 and 14 percent of the variability in antibody levels.

But too few children and adults get their yearly flu shot, he noted.

As a result, the researchers found patients had very high levels of antibody for two out of three of the viruses present in the vaccination, even before they were immunised.

Among children age 6 months through 23 months, the vaccination rate was 76.3 percent, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. During the 2016-2017 season, the hospitalization rate was almost double that of the 2015-2016 season and higher across all age groups (cumulative rate for all ages of 62.6/100,000) than the previous eight seasons, with the exception of the 2014-2015 season. "Influenza is an unpredictable infectious disease". First, get vaccinated. Second, take measures to prevent the spread of the disease.

"It will be severe and there will always be a flu season".

Health Department officials recommend that the flu vaccine be administered annually for children and adults, especially those at high risk of complications.
