To help older individuals avoid the flu, Penn Highlands Community Nurses are offering flu shot clinics at all Centers for Active Living and at the Houtzdale Family Service Center.

Already in North Carolina, three flu-related deaths have been reported. "It's a little bit of a high level scientific predicting game", said Rattay. This year, the nasal spray vaccine - which was not recommended the past two flu seasons - is again considered an acceptable alternative to the injectable vaccine. While seasonal influenza outbreaks can happen as early as October, most of the time influenza activity peaks in January or later.

The corporate offices for Walgreens and CVS, both of which offer flu shots, didn't respond to a query about the specific vaccinations they provide. A flu shot is not flawless, but all Americans should consider taking it to prevent any health problems.

Colin Cox, Cumbria County Council's Director of Public Health, said: "I strongly encourage everyone in vulnerable groups to get the flu vaccine as we head into winter".

Parents should know that students should visit with their primary health care provider regarding getting the vaccine. "In older people, we're looking at that declining immune system". "We go where they are and make it [available] at different locations where people can access it".

Carson said sometimes expecting mothers can hesitate in getting their flu shots once they learn the virus is present in the vaccine. Frank Esper of Cleveland Clinic Children's says that improvements have made the nasal vaccine more effective, but the flu shot is still preferred.

USA health officials are trying to increase the rate of flu vaccinations this year after a severe outbreak last season killed a record number of children and led to spot shortages of antiviral medications like Tamiflu.

Recent studies show that flu vaccination reduces the risk of the flu by between 40 and 60 percent among the overall population during seasons when most circulating flu viruses are well-matched to the flu vaccine, according to the CDC. We are less likely to pass along what could prove to be deadly flu viruses to babies, older relatives and friends with respiratory conditions or heart ailments. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that people get vaccinated by the end of October if possible, as it takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body that protect against influenza virus infection.

Around 50 percent of Americans get the flu shot...which is 20 percent lower than medical officials would like.

"It's biologically impossible", he added. "So it makes sense, if you have inspiration, opportunity and desire, to be vaccinated against influenza", - said Zhigarev.
