For the second year in a row the Centers for Disease Control is recommending against using a nasal flu vaccine

For the second year in a row the Centers for Disease Control is recommending against using a nasal flu vaccine

This comes on the same day a national campaign kicked off to raise awareness of the dangers of the virus.

Every flu season, millions of people get the flu every year, several thousands of people are hospitalized and tens of thousands of people die from flu-related causes every year. The vaccine is not ideal, and its effectiveness typically hovers between 40 percent and 60 percent.

"A flu shot has become pretty routine for nearly everyone", Solaro said. "Those are pretty good odds", he added.

"With this pretty good vaccine we can do an terrible lot of good", he said.

October 2, 10 a.m. - 12 p.m.

It's located at 1538 Kanawha Blvd.

"We've got a lot of room for improvement", Price said.

Flu vaccination coverage throughout the entire United States was 46.8 percent, which is an increase of 1.2 percent from the 2015-2016 season, the CDC reports.

Less than half of all Americans ages 6 months and up got their flu shots a year ago, leaving a majority of people unvaccinated against a potentially serious illness, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The CDC says people who get flu shots have a 40 percent to 60 percent lower chance of getting seriously ill than the unvaccinated. She also tries to drink extra water during flu season.

"I have not even really considered it at all at this point. That's indicated for everyone over six months of age and there's been some studies out recently that the flu vaccine has been preventative and protective from pediatric deaths", Kelley noted. A vaccine will make symptoms milder if you do get sick.

Each flu season is a new adventure for public health experts, since the viruses that cause the flu are always changing.

"Whatever it looks like at a given year, these numbers are far too high considering there is a vaccine that can prevent a significant portion of this disease", Mr. Price said. "We don't know if we'll have a bad season". That rating is determined by the number of influenza-associated deaths, the number of laboratory-diagnosed influenza cases and the percentage of visits to clinics or hospitals for flu-like illness.

Symptoms of flu include quick onset of high fever (more than 101 degrees), dry cough, fatigue and body aches. She told POPSUGAR that there are a few groups of people who should prioritize getting the flu shot: "Especially young [patients], immunocompromised patients, pregnant women, or those over 65 years of age".

If you could give our readers just one piece of advice for staying healthy through cold and flu season, what would it be and why? All at greater risk of contracting, even dying, from the flu.

Price said it's "remarkably easy" to get a flu shot, with thousands of places across the country offering the vaccine.

"After a year, your immune system isn't where it quite should be so you need a little booster", said Neubauer. "It is critical to maintain the highest level of vaccination coverage for older adults because they are disproportionately affected by flu". They are available Monday through Friday from 8:30 3:30 p.m.

All flu vaccines this season are made to protect against viruses similar to the strains A/Michigan/45/2015 (H1N1), A/Hong Kong/4801/2014 (H3N2) and B/Brisbane/60/2008 (B/Victoria lineage).
