Flu Shot Myths That Need To Be Debunked ASAP

The estimates were released in an attempt to get more Americans vaccinated; less than half of America got vaccinated two flu seasons ago.

Hilderman said Manitoba saw a rise past year in the number of people getting a flu vaccine - 22.5 per cent of the population.

The CDC recommends that people get their seasonal flu vaccine as soon as the flu vaccination is available, and ideally by October.

About 40 percent of USA residents received a seasonal flu vaccination previous year. Even though many believe that the flu vaccine is often ineffective and can, it is still the against the virus.

Look out for a letter from your GP telling you about the dates and times of their flu clinics or additionally enquire at your local pharmacy who are once again offering the flu jab too.

"Our flu season is usually based on the southern hemisphere's season that is just ending, and in the southern hemisphere, they did not have a awful year this year", Bhardwaj said.

Even if the flu vaccine does not fully protect against the flu, it may reduce the severity of symptoms and the risk of complications. That preservation process makes the virus serve as the antigen, or substance which causes the human body to create antibodies and fight the flu. "You should do it for the babies and grandmothers who could get sick and die if they get the flu".

For older recipients, recent studies indicate getting a flu shot helps ward off heart attacks - as much so as taking blood pressure prescriptions or stopping smoking.

Last winter, a nasty version of the flu combined with low immunization rates and a less-effective vaccine to produce one of the deadliest flu seasons in decades.

Last flu season broke state records. Its vaccine, created with genetic sequencing and grown with tobacco, can be retrofitted to immunize against nearly any virus so long as its DNA can be obtained. These habits include getting enough sleep, washing hands regularly and avoiding hand contact with the eyes, nose and mouth.
