CDC, health department recommends getting flu shot now

County Health Department: 'People of all ages are advised to get vaccinated'

"What it shows us is that we have a loathsomeness flu season staring us in the face", Hennessy told media on Monday.

"Dealing with the flu can be very unpleasant - and it can sometimes be very costly if you have to miss work or school while you're sick or caring for others who are sick".

Experts at Baylor College of Medicine report Australia has had more than double the number of flu cases this season compared with last, which could translate to bad news for the U.S.

The CDC said it takes about two weeks for the vaccine to protect you from the flu.

Tuesday, Sept. 26, 3:30-7 p.m.

Vaccines are widely available now and are usually covered by insurance.

According to the CDC, a year ago was a late flu season, with most activity happening between December and February, and not seeing a peak in activity until March.

Flu is typically spread by droplets when someone with the flu talks, coughs, or sneezes.

Past studies have found flu vaccines are safe during pregnancy, though there is been little research on impact of flu vaccinations given in the first three months of pregnancy.

The McCracken County Health Department said it has not yet received shipment of the vaccine, but most doctors offices and clinics have. No appointments are necessary for the walk-in clinic.

Last week, the Virginia Department of Health held an event at the Richmond City Health District with health care leaders, as well as Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney, in which Stoney and Virginia's health commissioner, Dr. Marissa Levine, received their flu shots. The flu is a contagious respiratory illness that can cause mild to severe illness. "The more people we can get immunized for the flu, the less problems", he said.

Thursday, September 21, 10 a.m.to 12 p.m. In addition to the free flu shots, other free screenings and a wide variety of health information will be available during the Health Fair.

Getting a flu shot usually means you have to at least get out of your vehicle, go into a building and wait for your health care provider to receive your vaccination. Flu clinic paperwork may be printed from http://www.richland.org/rchd, on the Richland County Health Department Facebook page, or obtained the day of the mass flu shot clinic.
