Research earlier this year found that people were six times more likely to have a heart attack in the week after being diagnosed with the flu.

The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare reported Friday that the first flu-related death happened this week.

Influenza or the flu is a respiratory infection with symptoms similar to a cold but much more severe including a high fever for several days, body aches, fatigue and weakness.

"When we each get vaccinated, we boost our own immunity and reduce our own risk of getting the flu", Basta said. The flu shot is also covered if you are a Medicare Part B recipient.

The flu vaccine is made each year based on scientists' predictions of which influenza virus strains will be most problematic in the United States.

"Influenza can influence cardiovascular events especially in high-risk individuals, so we should not be complacent about vaccination", said Dr. Scott Solomon, the study's senior author and a professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. For those without health insurance, flu shots will cost $10.

One is that the flu vaccine can give you the flu. By protecting yourself against influenza, you are also protecting your family, your household, your workplace and ultimately your community. "Only the flu shot will be given".

The researchers received an $8 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to expand on research that creates a framework for the significance of biological sex in flu vaccine immune responses. Speak to your healthcare provider or pharmacist to determine which is best for you.

"I usually do the flu shot", Dr. Bhargava says.

Along with receiving the flu shot, Ott says it is important to: wash your hands frequently, avoid touching your nose, ears and mouth with unclean hands, cough into a tissue or your sleeve, keep frequently touched common surfaces clean, avoid hand shakes and try not to use other people's phones, computers or work tools.
