Flu striking more than usual in Windsor and Essex County this year

Public health agencies say the flu vaccine is the best protection from the flu and its complications

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has established the week of December 2-8 as National Influenza Vaccination Week to highlight the importance of continuing flu vaccination throughout the holiday season and beyond.

This article is a condensed version of The Conversation article "Countering misinformation about flu vaccine is harder than it seems'".

Webby added that the vaccine is also safe. While vaccinations like the measles, mumps, rubella, and several others are already required, there are many optional yet highly recommended vaccines that many parents feel are unnecessary. 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. More serious adverse events are rare.

"Millions of people get the flu every year, hundreds of thousands of people are hospitalized, and tens of thousands of people die from flu-related consequences". Many experimental vaccines have attempted to exploit the fact that the bottom part of the hemagglutinin protein does not change much from strain to strain, but those preparations haven't proved potent enough.

Are all health care providers required to get vaccinated?

"We recommend that all residents, who have not yet received a flu shot, do so now either through their physician, a local pharmacy or at a clinic".

A new survey released by Clover Health reveals that just 66 percent of New Jersey seniors have gotten a flu shot so far this season.

"I had no idea, I had no idea what the flu could do", says Mitchell.

This means, people often benefit from receiving the right information, at the right time, from a healthcare provider they trust.

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

Flu vaccines are not 100% effective, and sometimes the strain of flu circulating is not a flawless match for the flu strains in the flu vaccine. Although flu vaccines are not ideal, they are the best way to prevent getting the flu. They have a wealth of resources for nurses and patients on their website. Kaweah Delta's staff influenza vaccination rate ranked the hospital in a tie for the fifth highest in the state beside Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, USC Kenneth Norris Jr.
