Parish Health Units offering flu shots next week

Kaweah Delta Medical Center among best in vaccinations for staff

These methods are set in place to protect the most vulnerable, who tend to be the very young, the very old and those with compromised health situations.

The common cold and the flu can have numerous same symptoms, but there are key differences. But last year's season ended up one of most severe on record, health officials have said.

"At the parish health units, we have extended the evening hours to better allow people to get their shot after they leave school or work", said Dr. Most people have likely had the flu at some point - with symptoms such as a constant cough, sore throat, a runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headaches and fatigue - yet many myths and misperceptions remain. NPs can also remind family members and friends it is not enough to simply avoid the patient if they are sick because they would likely be contagious with the flu even before they knew they were sick.

Fact: The flu vaccine reduces the risk of contracting and spreading the disease by up to 60 percent, according to the CDC.

The Clover Health Flu Shot Monitor included key findings for New Jersey. It will go away. The symptoms are much more severe and intense.

Unfortunately, more than 16,000 of those deaths were residents of Louisiana. The flu vaccine is crucial, not only to prevent flu in an individual, but also to prevent the spread of flu to those who may be at higher risk of complications.

Vaccinations are a significant achievement in the advancement of public health, aiding in diminishing the detrimental effects induced by harmful pathogens.

Last year, the Sparks reached the second round of the WNBA playoffs before being eliminated by the Washington Mystics . Fisher will be the 12th head coach in Sparks history, which includes fellow former Laker Michael Cooper .

Health care providers are strongly encouraged to get the flu vaccine. The vaccine's effectiveness also can vary depending on who is being vaccinated.

"From November 25 to December 1st we had 45 people test positive at Interior Health facilities, and we are seeing a sharp increase in the number of younger people which we typically see in H-1-N-1 influenza "A" season", said Medical Health Officer Karen Goodison.

The flu shot is safe for pregnant and breastfeeding women, who can pass on antibodies to their babies that will help protect them. Educating youth will give them the knowledge to understand the need for vaccines, which will hopefully begin to resolve misconceptions promulgated by the anti-vaccination movement.

Webby said a "slightly reassuring signal" this year is that the H1N1 strain is the dominant strain of flu circulating.

There is evidence the flu can be milder and briefer in those who have been vaccinated against the flu.

"That's the strain that's a little bit better match to our vaccine", he said.
