CDC: Flu vaccination rates for Minnesota children drop with age
30 September, 2018, 01:01
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are aiming for significantly higher rates of flu vaccination for the 2018-2019 flu season following the most deadly season since 1976, the first year total seasonal flu deaths were reported.
In addition to the deaths, the flu put about 900,000 people in the hospital.
Noting that in California, the flu usually begins to increase in late November or December, Kelaita shares that it takes a couple of weeks after vaccination for the body to respond fully, so getting vaccinated early is the best protection.
But everyone, no matter their age, has a "social responsibility" to get the vaccination so as not to contribute to spreading the virus, he added. Another statistic of concern is that Nevadans have the worst influenza immunization rates in the country with only 33% of residents taking advantage of flu shots. It's about everyone else around you. Among the 80,000 flu deaths recorded last season were 180 children, of which 80% were found to have not been vaccinated, Adams said.
To compare with other years in the history of having the flu shot, the flu typically kills about 12,000 Americans in a mild year. "Whenever friends come by, I ask them are you vaccinated".
"My wife's grandmother was going along OK", Adams said.

Pregnant women most likely to be vaccinated included those whose provider offered it, followed by those who got a referral and were immunized elsewhere. He encouraged pneumococcal vaccination, too. Last season saw a small decline of 1.1 percentage points to 57.9%, but the decline was a little steeper (2.2 percentage points) in the youngest group, those ages 6 months through 4 years. Both types are created to help initiate a more robust immune response.
The influenza vaccine lessens the severity of flu and reduces the risk of complications. According to the CDC, about 70 percent of estimated hospitalizations and 90 percent of deaths occurred in that age group.
"The vaccine for children is no longer an injection; it is a simple nasal spray that takes a few seconds to administer".
CDC recommends that people be vaccinated anytime between now and the end of October.
The CDC has posted information about flu vaccination for long-term care professionals online.
