Get your flu shot now, Lane County health officials urge

Albertans will be able to get a flu shot starting October 23, 2017, the provincial government announced Monday. Past year the state confirmed over 75-hundred cases of influenza. On average, approximately 24,000 Americans die annually from flu-related complications. "The objective of the vaccine is to simulate your immune system and so sometimes you can get mild headaches and aches and that's due to your immune system responding to the vaccine", Doctor Rachel Herlihy with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment said.

Just days into the fall season and health officials in Colorado are predicting a very active flu season. Many others may have had the virus, but avoided hospitalization.

Rita Fulginiti took a break from her post as Cape May County Clerk Monday to stop in and get her annual flu vaccine to protect not only herself, but her husband. There has been a study that correlated flu vaccines and miscarriage in some cases. Getting vaccinated later, however, can still be beneficial and vaccination should continue to be offered throughout the flu season, even into January or later. Vaccinations will be administered through the influenza shot to anyone six months of age or older.
