"On October 17 we are going to have a drive-through flu clinic at the Marshall County Technical School", said Clinic Supervisor Sara Shelton. Those who want a flu shot must bring your insurance card with you.

However, health experts say there it is too hard to predict whether Australia's unusually bad flu season this year will end also mean a rough year for the U.S.

Senior nursing student, Danika Cline helped give out the vaccines and encouraged people to get their shot. "It takes up to two weeks to develop the vaccine's full protection, and the coverage can last for up to a year". But now we might be gaining the upper hand in the war: a universal flu vaccine has been cleared for widespread human trials in the United Kingdom that should be much more effective at destroying different forms of the virus.

Dr. Dennis Estep, Freeman OccuMed medical director, said that every year, epidemiologists track flu strains from all over the world to predict what strains will show up in the United States during its flu season.

The elderly are advised to get inoculated against flu each winter, but in recent years the injection has been relatively ineffective on this vulnerable demographic.

Children age 8 and under who did not receive a flu vaccine during last year's flu season may need a second vaccine 30 days after receiving the first vaccine dose. This includes pregnant women, people with certain chronic long term health conditions, everyone aged 65 and over, and children aged two-eight years.

While it's hard to figure out how many people catch the flu each year, because many people get the flu and do not require medical attention, the CDC estimates between 9.2 million and 35.6 million in the U.S alone.

Secretary for Food and Health Sophia Chan Siu-chee sought to ease concerns over the effectiveness of vaccines offered by the government for the coming influenza season, saying it is too early to say they will not be able to fight the flu viruses, the Hong Kong Economic Journal reports. This is true no matter what flu variety, or strain, is in the vaccine. Way in Harrisonburg and 1310 Churchille Avenue in Staunton all have flu vaccines. Previously, it was recommended that people with the allergy be given a vaccine under the supervision of a doctor familiar with managing severe allergic reactions so they can be observed for half an hour after the vaccination.

Besides the shot, the number one method of prevention is good old fashion hand washing.

Junior Sydney Padden received her vaccine Wednesday morning and said she gets her shot every year.

The community center is located at 504 Southern Avenue in Walnut Ridge.
