Should You Get A Flu Shot?

Flu season is upon us. Here’s what Vancouverites need to know. Flu Shot Now Available

Flu shots are now readily available at VCH public clinics, doctors' offices, walk-in clinics and pharmacies.

It will take place on the second floor of the Police Department Thursday from 3pm-5pm. "Vaccination to prevent influenza is particularly important for people who are at high risk of serious complications from influenza, including children younger than 5, but especially children younger than 2 years; adults 65 years of age and older ...; pregnant women and women up to two weeks postpartum; residents of nursing homes and other long-term care facilities; and people who have underlying medical conditions, including asthma, chronic lung disease, heart disease, diabetes, etc. ..." The vaccine typically includes three to four strains of the virus.

Ontario's Government for the People is encouraging Ontario families to get their free flu shot to stay healthy and prevent hospital visits this flu season. It usually doesn't arrive until January or so so this is early. That's important.Do you know why fewer people got flu shots past year? Additionally, people in low-risk groups may decline to get a flu shot because of a sense of invulnerability. I got influenza after a flu shot maybe two years ago.

What's different about this year's flu vaccine?

"This year, for the first time, we are introducing a new vaccine for those aged 65 and over which will more effectively boost the immune system of older people, so that they are better protected". Even so, most people really know they have influenza and it lasts.

Primary school children will get the vaccination at school, while pre-school children will receive it through their local GP surgery. The reason being that the vaccine either has a killed (inactivated) form of the virus that is not infectious or it is made with proteins from a flu vaccine virus that is attenuated "weakened" and therefore can not cause the flu.

In general, you're probably getting the quadrivalent vaccine, infectious disease expert Amesh A. Adalja, MD, senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, tells Yahoo Lifestyle. In addition, vaccination during pregnancy helps protect the baby from the influenza virus during the first few months of life, because the vaccinated pregnant mother can pass protective antibodies to baby during pregnancy. I know it wasn't from the shot because outside of the live attenuated nasal spray, all the other vaccines do not contain live virus. It's just a single dose, but you have to take it within 48 hours. People may also be infected with influenza and have respiratory symptoms without a fever. It's been around a long time and sometimes, when people can't get flu vaccines, we'll use it for prevention. The flu shot is considered safe during pregnancy and works equally well in both pregnant and other women. If you wait until cases of flu are widespread, it may be too late for the vaccine to protect you.

"The question is what kind of a season are we going to see this year?"

Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Tankut suggests that you wash your hands for 20 seconds with soap and warm water.
