Health Experts Say Flu Shots Important This Year

The price of flu vaccine will vary from $35 to $65, depending on the individual's age and the type of vaccine used.

But Professor Cheng admits: 'The vaccine does not look completely effective in all age groups.

When should I get the vaccine? "Sanofi Pasteur fully supports such immunisation policies by developing innovative vaccines that fit with the influenza epidemiology, providing the option for broad protection for those aged three years and older". "With increase cases of flu during these months it's important to be vaccinated to protect yourself from the flu".

Among women who received pH1N1-containing vaccine during the previous influenza season, the aOR for vaccine receipt within the 28-day window was 7.7, whereas the aOR for the same period was 1.3 among women not vaccinated during the previous season. But there is some benefit'.

The flu shot, or an accepted medical or religious exemption, is a condition of employment in the Health System and for many School of Medicine employees. Flu viruses spread mainly by droplets made when people with flu cough, sneeze or talk. The results aren't expected until next year at the earliest, he said.

That the effectiveness of the vaccine could wane is a possibility, acknowledges Professor Oxford.

The high-dose vaccinations were approved for use in the United States in 2009.

"What it does is help prevent you from getting really sick, missing days of school, missing days of work".

Common complaints about the shot include redness at the injection site, mild symptoms and general soreness. Uninsured children may receive subsidized vaccine through the Vaccines for Children program. But they can potentially cause more side-effects, such as fever.

A vaccine being trialled in the northern hemisphere that can be inhaled could also be available in future years if found to be effective and can boost the rate of uptake rate among children, which now sits at about 10 per cent. Immunising children not only protects them, but the rest of the community - particularly the elderly and those with illnesses that make them highly vulnerable to infection.
