Number of influenza cases in San Diego rises again after brief decline

Number of influenza cases in San Diego rises again after brief decline

The clinic will be open only from 1-4 p.m. October 13 and will be closed all day November 10.

When the State Health Department announced that there would be cutbacks to the popular "stop flu at school program" - many parents were concerned.

Usually, there is one standard flu shot, however there are two additional shots geared towards seniors. Call the drug store for details. For people 65 and older, the high-dose flu shot is available for $54 and the pneumonia vaccine is available for $89. "Influenza can generate severe complications, including death, especially for people with underlying medical conditions".

Anyone over 6 months of age should get a flu shot, she said.

The flu shot is free to Muskingum county residents and the Health Department encourages anyone who hasn't received the vaccine yet to take advantage of the upcoming clinics.

Sir Bruce Keogh, NHS England's medical director, told the BBC he was anxious about how staff would cope with a major flu outbreak. "This underscores how important it is for all of us to take precautions now to avoid influenza infections. It is highly contagious, and is among the top 10 leading causes of death in Canada".

A flu-like illness is often characterized by sudden onset of fever, sore throat, muscle aches, cough and weakness.

NHS staff already get free flu vaccinations and NHS England wants trusts to make it less disruptive for staff. "If you are sick, stay home, and keep sick children away from daycares and schools", said Dr. Kling.

The FDA approved vaccines are created to offer extra protection beyond the standard flu shot.

"Ensuring children get vaccinated is extremely important not only to protect them from flu but also to stop then spreading it to vulnerable groups they come in to contact with", he said. The seasonal quadrivalent vaccine also includes influenza B vaccine virus, a B/Phuket/3073/2013-like virus (Yamagata lineage).

Mr. Davies said: "I'm pleased to once again back the Beat Flu campaign which is working across Wales to deliver flu vaccines to individuals most at risk of serious complications from influenza". If the two sets of viruses are not closely related, the vaccine's effectiveness diminishes, but the CDC assures it will still protect against influenza illness.
