Most people have likely had the flu at some point - with symptoms such as a constant cough, sore throat, a runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headaches and fatigue - yet many myths and misperceptions remain. And how can you encourage your patients and their family and friends to get it without being a nag? "The flu season usually peaks between December and February and continues until May". These professors were a lot more understanding with students who contracted the flu, giving them lenience to miss class to get better and limit the spread of the flu.

Pregnant women are at an increased risk for severe illness and complications if infected with the influenza virus. The highest rates of hospitalization were among adults 65 or older and children younger than 4; both age groups saw slightly more than 3 flu-related hospitalizations per 100,000 people.

Prepare your business for the long, cold months ahead and help minimize the risk of staff sickness and subsequent business downtime, with the following cold and flu prevention tips for the workplace.

The agency can bill Medicare and most insurance companies for the flu vaccine. Flu vaccines are made with either inactivated flu or a weakened flu virus, neither of which can cause the flu. Some people may feel mild symptoms after receiving the flu vaccine, but nurses should emphasize that the symptoms are mild and brief, and are very different from the severity of symptoms of the flu. They purchased a large amount of flu vaccines - about 200 - and used all of them. In light of the evident challenges in taking legal action, proponents of vaccinations should direct advocacy efforts by pushing for a higher education in health during primary and secondary schooling.

Looking at the new NORC report, Webby worries about "the quarter of people [age] 60-plus that are not getting vaccinated". "We recommend that all residents, who have not yet received a flu shot, do so now either through their physician, a local pharmacy or at a clinic". It will go away. His parents have set up a fund to promote flu vaccinations.

Now, with a new flu season upon us, we have a chance to honor the memories of these and so many others by reducing the toll that flu takes on our nation. The symptoms are much more severe and intense.

The flu causes approximately 500 deaths and almost 3,000 hospitalizations each year in Louisiana.

Are all health care providers required to get vaccinated? Policies regarding the flu vaccine vary from organization to organization. Back in 2015-16, Kaweah Delta began requiring all staff to either get a flu vaccination or wear a face mask during cold and flu season.

"Everyone who presents for a flu shot will be screened to make sure it's safe for them to receive the vaccine". How can vaccinations benefit them? How can you encourage them to get vaccinated?

Webby said a "slightly reassuring signal" this year is that the H1N1 strain is the dominant strain of flu circulating. In some cases, people were exposed to the flu before their immune system had time to build a response to the flu vaccine. The child was not vaccinated for the current flu season. Although flu vaccines are not ideal, they are the best way to prevent getting the flu.

Anything else regarding the importance of vaccinations for influenza that you think is important for our readers to know?

The CDC is an excellent resource for information regarding the flu. "I also refer them to the Centers for Disease Control website, cdc.gov, which provides up to date information for healthcare providers and the public", said Mayer.

The northeast section of the state - defined by the DPH as towns north of Boston to the New Hampshire border - saw the highest number of lab-confirmed cases from October 6 to November 30, at 77.
