How severe will this year's flu season be?

Children under five but over six months old and non-Saskatchewan residents can be vaccinated at a public health clinic.

A person experiencing high fevers - 103-104 degrees Fahrenheit - chills, is having trouble taking in fluids or sees streaks of blood when they cough up phlegm, Ramsey said they should visit a's time to visit the doctor.

"So, even if you received the vaccine during the 2017/18 programme, you still need to get the vaccination for the 2018/19 flu season".

Most of us get our flu shots in the fall, noted Dr. Michael Ison, a professor in the division of infectious diseases at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago.

'It is also about making sure the hospital's staff are aware of how important getting their flu jab is, not only for their health, but for the health of our patients'. And yes, it's possible for you to get a strain of influenza not covered by this year's vaccine. The shot is either made with a virus that has been "killed" or "inactivated" or made with "only a single gene from a flu virus (as opposed to the full virus) in order to produce an immune response without causing infection", the CDC says.

Shahab said more and more pharmacies have been offering the flu vaccine every year, with 340 offering it out of 380 in the province.

And of course, wash your hands with soap and water (or use hand sanitizer if you can't find a sink) regularly-especially before you eat or touch your eyes, nose, or mouth, all of which are conduits that allow flu viral particles to enter your body and infect you.

For students, getting a flu shot is convenient.

That's a myth: The flu shot has no live viruses, so it can't make you sick. Wagener has daily appointments available.

With flu season approaching, Taiwan Centers for Disease Control (Taiwan CDC) held an event on October 15 to urge the public to get a flu shot as soon as possible, according to a press release posted on the agency's website.
