Franklin Township: Free Flu Shots for All this Saturday

Franklin Township: Free Flu Shots for All this Saturday

Kevin Legge, a U-I pathology professor, says they're working in stages and are trying to flawless a multi-year flu shot first.

Dr. Joseph Kanter, Louisiana Office of Public Health Medical Director, said, "Do not underestimate the flu". It is estimated that flu vaccination prevents millions of flu illnesses and tens of thousands of hospitalizations.

Health Department spokesman Tony Sellars says 291 people died due to the flu during Oklahoma's previous flu season, the most since the agency began tracking flu deaths in 2009.

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.

Researchers at Baltimore-based Johns Hopkins University are investigating how biological sex affects patients' immune responses to the influenza vaccine.

It's never too early to get the flu shot. "But it's still given because some people are afraid of needles and they have that option but we highly don't recommend it", said Michelle, Licensed Vocational Nurse at Kaiser Permanente Martinez Medical Center.

The flu shot is made from dead influenza virus cells and can not spread the flu.

As for Altered Carbon , production on season two is thought to be underway with estimations of a late 2019 release date. But since he's also working with Netflix on his Pinocchio project , seems possible that he could get involved here too.

Another is related to the vaccine's effectiveness.

Flu shots will be provided to anyone over the age of 6 months and will be free to anyone with proof of health insurance. Even healthy people can become sick enough to miss work or school for a significant amount of time, or even be hospitalized. But in 2016, a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advisory committee stopped recommending FluMist because it didn't perform well against a particular flu strain, the H1N1 strain. They hadn't received a flu vaccination, according to the state's department of health.

Many misconceptions about the flu vaccine linger.

Getting the flu shot is at local drug store is an option for those without insurance.

"Getting the vaccine is a quick, simple procedure which is the best way people can protect themselves against the unpredictable flu virus and any more serious complications which could result".
