Fall 2018 flu vaccine clinics available

Wilkes-Barre Health Department to offer free flu vaccine clinics

During the latest flu season, 227 people, including five children or teenagers, died, making it the deadliest season for which the state Department of Health has records, Haselow said.

Despite this conflicting advice, Public Health Solutions in Crete says some immunization is better than none, and predicting the timing of the flu is hard.

Two years ago the nasal spray vaccine was taken off the market because the Center for Disease Control said it was no longer effective for that particular flu season. We want everybody to get the flu shot - people of all ages - but those of us who are younger have healthier systems. That count represents about 60 percent of children and 40 percent of adults.

This year's trivalent vaccines will protect against the A/Michigan strain, a H1N1-like virus; A/Singapore, a H3N2-like virus; and B/Colorado (Victoria lineage), while the quadrivalent vaccine will also protect against the B/Phuket strain (Yamagata lineage).

To help, all CVS Pharmacy and MinuteClinic locations have the vaccine available seven days a week with no appointment needed.

With flu season approaching, the Ionia County Health Department is stocking up on vaccines.

Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire come in to do the questioning since there are no Republican women on the Judiciary Comittee. Republicans want to stay on track - aiming for a confirmation vote before October 1, when the court begins its new term.

The survey also found that doctors' opinions (39 percent), where insurance is accepted (38 percent), and convenience (33 percent) rank among the top three factors in determining where to go for the shot.

The age recommendation for Fluarix Equivalent, which uses mammalian culture rather than chicken embryos, was changed from 3 years old and older to 6 months and older.

Fee flu shots will be offered to the public starting September 28 at several libraries throughout the county. For more information about the October flu shot, clinics call the health department or visit them online. The price of flu vaccine will vary from $35 to $75, depending on the individual's age and the type of vaccine used.

With this year's season to begin in less than two weeks, officials are preparing to kick off mass flu vaccination clinics in every county. These include life-threatening allergic reactions to a previous dose of the flu vaccine or an ingredient in the vaccine.

According to the NFID, "Access to the vaccine at low or no cost (61 percent) and incentives, such as free food or gift cards (61 percent), were among the top offerings that students say would have a lot of impact on the likelihood of getting vaccinated".
