Town's 'big shots' get flu shots

The child, who tested positive for influenza B, died sometime during the week of September 30, although privacy concerns prevent officials from saying exactly where, CBS affiliate WTSP reports. Healthy Schools, founded by former Jacksonville Jaguars player Tony Boselli, said the clinics are getting back on track, offering in-school flu shots to students in the district. The child, the first to die in the state, had not received a flu vaccination. Despite pleas from health officials to get the shot, about 58 percent of children ages 6 months to 17 got it last season, down two percentage points from 2015-16, the federal government said.

Over the course of six flu seasons, the researchers found that pregnant women are 40 percent more likely to end up in the hospital because of a more serious illness after getting the flu.

During the 2017-18 flu season - the deadliest flu season in four decades - 80,000 Americans died, including 180 children. "What happened previous year was one of the common A strains changed after the A strain was produced, so it was not as effective". It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies that protect against flu to develop in the body. "This season, influenza vaccines have been updated to better match the circulating strains". The flu vaccine is available now in many locations such as a local doctor's office, pharmacies, grocery stores and health departments.

People at high risk for flu complications include children younger than 5, adults 65 years and older and pregnant women, the CDC says. This is especially crucial because babies under the age of six months can not get flu shots.

Anti-virals like Tamiflu are effective in lessening the symptoms of the flu but are most effective if administered within 48 hours of the onset of symptoms.

Alberta Health Services is advising Albertans to roll up their sleeves and protect themselves and everyone around them this flu season.
