"We want to remind everyone that getting the flu vaccine is the absolute best way to protect yourself and those you love". "And while healthy people may not suffer serious illness from the flu, they can pass the virus to babies too young to be vaccinated, people who have chronic illnesses, and others who may develop serious health problems like pneumonia". No appointment is necessary.

Seasonal influenza activity is spreading in Sevier County and across Tennessee and is expected to continue for months, so it's important for anyone over six months of age who hasn't had a flu shot this flu season to get one now. Infants younger than six months can not be vaccinated, making it important that anyone in a household where a young baby lives get a flu shot to protect the child.

Kaiser Permanente reported 10 percent of influenza samples tested positive last week for the flu. Additionally, two-thirds (66 percent) of those surveyed get a flu vaccine every year, or plan to get one this year, a five percent increase from last year's survey findings. The virus can live on hard surfaces for several hours, and it can be spread from surfaces such as toys and doorknobs that an infected person has touched recently. If you are experiencing fever, runny or stuffy nose, sore throat, cough, muscle aches and headaches, visit your doctor immediately, and take antivirals if prescribed. It is especially important for these individuals to be vaccinated each year. "We don't know whether the flu season will be good or bad this year". Many observational studies have found that in addition to lessening the duration and severity of symptoms, antiviral drugs can prevent flu complications. These measures include covering your mouth when coughing and sneezing, staying at home when you or your children are sick and washing your hands frequently.
