MCHD encourages Flu Shots as Flu Season fast approaches

Vaccines set to be given at area schools

Ignore the pseudoscience; get a flu shot for the greater good

Flu shots can be administered by most pharmacists, family doctors, family practice nurses and nurse practitioners.

ZANESVILLE, Ohio- The cooler weather is a reminder to get your flu vaccine this year so that hopefully the only chill will be in the air.

Sir Bruce Keogh, NHS England's medical director, told the BBC he was anxious about how staff would cope with a major flu outbreak.

The actions targeted at health professionals come alongside a significant expansion of the national flu vaccination programme for key groups, aiming to offer the vaccine to over 21 million people. Receiving the flu shot each season is the best way to prevent infection, as the virus changes from year to year; each season the recommended vaccine is created to protect against circulating viruses. Almost 47 percent of Americans received a flu vaccine in 2016, and almost all of those vaccinations occurred early in the season.

Some stores like Target and Giant Eagle are also giving out a $5 coupon if you get a flu shot in the pharmacies within their stores. Trivalent vaccines protect against three strains of flu, while quadrivalent protects against four strains of the virus. Some people experience mild side effects that can mimic flu symptoms, such as soreness at the injection site, body aches, or fever.

Free flu shots are offered by appointment for adults without health insurance, and for children without health insurance or who have Medical Assistance/Forward card.

"We recommend getting your flu vaccine early as opposed to waiting for the flu season to officially start". "Even when they're not 100 percent effective at preventing flu, they may reduce how sick you'll get and reduce your chance of being hospitalized".

The vaccine contains an inactivated form of the flu and is not infectious.

People with respiratory diseases like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), emphysema or asthma are seven times more likely to die if they catch flu, and people with cardiovascular problems such as chronic heart disease or angina, or people who've had a stroke, are 11 times more likely compared to those who don't. Then they proceed to touch their eye, nose or mouth and the flu gets into their system.

Influenza spreads when a person comes into contact with droplets from an infected person who coughs or sneezes.
