Influenza ("flu") is a contagious disease that spreads around the United States every year, usually between October and May.

And they are encouraging patients to check whether they are also eligible to have a flu vaccination to protect them against catching flu and developing serious complications. "It is important to be prepared during this flu season, and we are dedicated to supporting our community by providing patients with these essential vaccinations and educating them on additional measures they can take to help reduce their risk of getting the flu". "Research has shown the flu vaccine can still provide some protection against new strains of flu and can reduce severe health outcomes such as hospitalization and death", she said.

According to the CDC, influenza activity begins to increase in late fall, peaking in the winter and carrying over into the spring.

Paules said 2018 marks 100 years since the influenza pandemic of 1918 that killed more people than any war or natural disaster in history: "It's worth thinking about what we can do to protect ourselves".

With at least two flu-related deaths reported in North Carolina in the past several weeks, state officials are urging the public to get vaccinated before the flu season becomes serious. The influenza virus sticks to surfaces.

In North Carolina the flu season begins October 1 and runs through May.

The Flu Pandemic of 1918 wiped out nearly 40 million people worldwide including almost 1 million Americans. Those people include infants, people older than 65 and anyone who has other medical conditions that may weaken their immune system. Fisher-Titus recommends that you schedule a visit with your primary care provider to get a flu shot. Well, twenty years prior to Salk's vaccine, the entire world was engulfed in the Flu Pandemic of 1918.

Both Essentia and St. Luke's give those who are 65 and older the high-dose vaccine. They do not recommend one type of flu vaccine over another.

Myth #5: "The flu shot causes the flu". The virus is then at risk of being transferred to more vulnerable people such as the elderly and those with existing health problems. And there are data presented here again, that confirm the notion that, for example, the high-dose vaccine clearly works better in adults. If you do catch a flu after being vaccinated, it is likely to be much milder and shorter lived than it would have otherwise been. That means getting proper sleep, eating a healthy diet and engaging in regular exercise.

People who are living in a long-stay residential care home or other long-stay care facility. Throw used tissues in the trash immediately rather than allowing them to contaminate tabletops or other common areas.
