Franklin Township: Free Flu Shots for All this Saturday

Each year in the US, the flu is estimated to cause between 12,000 and 56,000 deaths and up to 710,000 hospitalizations. That number was quadruple the average of 25 death each season over the last decade.

The CDC estimates 80 percent of child deaths occurred among unvaccinated children.

"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.

A child died in Florida during the first week of October. Flu shots were available to students, staff and faculty at a cost of $15 and supplies are limited.

The mechanics behind how the flu actually contributes to heart failure is unclear, but Arnett said that's not "as relevant as what we already know about preventing influenza".

The influenza vaccine does not guarantee protection against the flu but it does lower the chances in contracting it. People should take additional precautions to lower their risk, including those who received the vaccine. "But it's really nothing compared to the severity of illness that can occur with influenza".

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

Last season's flu vaccine turned out to be only 40 percent effective. The CDC provides vaccine estimates several times throughout the season, and typically early estimates are reported in February and the full season estimates come in June, Ambrose says.

The Department of Health wishes to remind the public of the importance of having a flu shot this season. offers a searchable database of vaccination locations.

Han points out that some vaccines have been shown to work better in older adults. Speak to your healthcare provider or pharmacist to determine which is best for you.
