People can get the flu vaccine from local providers.

"Individuals under a physician's care for chronic medical conditions and children under the age of three years are asked to obtain a prescription for flu immunization from their private physician".

Also, washing your hands with soap and water or using hand sanitizer, may help to avoid the flu. Some healthcare companies offer this option as part of a worksite wellness program in which they administer flu shots and provide educational materials. But the egg-grown, the version of the vaccine that most people get, isn't quite as effective. Health notwithstanding, healthcare professionals generally recommend the vaccine because of exposure - to friends, family, co-workers - that can lead to infection. In most places, the shot should be available until January or February as the flu season can last months, sometimes even until May. Wiping down surfaces with anti-bacterial wipes kills many different viruses, including the flu.

Myth: You can get sick from the flu shot.
. In fact, we're well in its midst, since flu season dates can range from October to May.

"The flu vaccine has to be formulated months in advance in order to have it ready".

"If you start the treatment late, it will not work as well", he said. The vaccine is made with a dead or weakened form of the flu virus, which can't give you influenza given the stunted amounts within the shot.

"This season, influenza A viruses have been most commonly identified, with influenza A (H3N2) viruses predominating", she wrote. However, studies have found that there is no link between vaccines containing thimerosal and ASD. In short, prevention is always better than cure; the best defense against the flu is to get an annual flu shot. The flu can be especially serious for children, the elderly and those with weak immune systems.

DPH has scheduled several flu clinics statewide. Usually these symptoms will occur within a few minutes to a few hours after the shot has been administered.
