Vaccines help you build the antibodies needed to fight the virus. Other strategies include developing vaccines aimed at the virus's protein coat, other proteins have been found to be identical in multiple flu strains, or the stalk of the hemagglutinin protein rather than its head. This will help prevent spreading your illness to others.
· People younger than age 5 or older than age 65. Currently, researchers develop a new seasonal flu vaccine every year based on which flu strains they predict will be circulating in the fall and winter.
One of the biggest roadblocks seems to be the idea that the flu shot needs to be administered annually to be effective.
Over a six-month period last season, more than 1,600 Albertans were hospitalized and 64 Albertans died with influenza.
'An ideal influenza vaccine would be low-cost, provide long-lasting immunity, require few immunisations and would work against all variants of the virus'. "It is common that when you do get the flu shot, you're taking in the inactive virus so you're body is getting exposed to something". "We need to determine how many seasons this H3 COBRA vaccine will protect against all H3N2 viruses into the future in all populations of people". Therefore, a follow-up study by Donald Carter, Scott Johnson, Michael Carlock, Greg Kirchenbaum, James Allen and Ross investigated how pre-existing antibodies to historical influenza viruses influenced vaccine efficacy. "So I think it's not at all surprising that there's hesitancy". In a nutshell, once a critical portion (90 percent to 95 percent) of a community is immunized against a certain disease, then most members of that community are protected against it.
"When the mom gets [the shot] the antibodies that she makes from that will get passed on to the baby in utero", Dr. Pate says.
