That's why the CDC is urging people to act now, just before the October start of the 2018-19 flu season and get vaccinated.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention does not recommend any influenza vaccine over another as "preferred".

The CDC's recommendations state that everyone six months or older should get a flu vaccine annually.

"Surprising to many, it can actually take up to two weeks for the flu vaccine to build immunity", explained Angela Patterson, Chief Nurse Practitioner Officer at MinuteClinic.

[2] USA adults surveyed who did not get a flu shot previous year. Influenza vaccination in high-risk individuals has also been linked to favorable health outcomes, including fewer flu-related hospitalizations and death.

The Ipswich Board of Health will offer a free flu clinic on Wednesday, October 10. However, flu viruses also change, so the vaccines themselves are slightly different from year to year. Vaccines are available at pharmacies and most doctors' offices and the health department.

The VA immunizations available at Walgreens use quadrivalent flu vaccine. "It's never too early to get a flu shot, as we cannot accurately predict when the influenza season will begin, but it can be too late".

3 children, 2 adults stabbed at unlicensed day care
It is not clear how old the three infants were, but one of them is in critical condition according to police. Police said the suspect was in custody and taken to a local hospital after trying to kill herself.

"The 2017-18 season was the first season to be classified as a high severity across all age groups", the CDC reported. "One year it might be a great match to what is in the flu vaccine, and other years we may see it drift a little bit", Aigner said.

But not having enough time isn't a good one in Glynn County anymore. The peak of flu season comes sometime between December and February, but the season can last as late as May.

The nasal spray "contains a weakened virus that does not cause influenza infection". High-dose formulation flu vaccines (intended for those 65 years old and older) are not available through VA.

Vaccines are specifically created to protect you from the flu without exposing you to a virus that will make you sick.

Furthermore, a National Foundation of Infectious Diseases (NFID) survey was conducted in October 2017 for college students 18 to 24 years old who were now attending a 2-year or 4-year college or university.

"The best way to protect yourself and your family from the flu is to get vaccinated. We need to protect the elderly and the very young".
