Flu Shot

What do we know about this year's flu season?

The CDC estimates that flu vaccines prevent tens of thousands of hospitalizations every year. Flu seasons can be unpredictable, but peak flu activity is usually between late December and March each year.

Just over 15,000 confirmed cases of influenza have been recorded in NSW from January to October 17, compared with more than 101,000 cases for the same period in last year's horror season. Epidemics of flu occur each year, but the location and severity of the cases varies from year to year.

More than 340 pharmacies will offer free flu vaccinations this season.

Twenty-two people have been hospitalized in CT with the flu activity so far this season as flu activity has been slowly increasing statewide since the end of August, which is typical for the flu season. "The flu vaccine takes about two weeks to work and for your body to fully develop a reaction to the vaccine and to be protected against it", said Dr.

NSW Health has distributed more than 2.3 million doses of government-funded vaccine to Global Positioning System and other providers this year. Now is the time to vaccinate!

The Greenville Health System will be offering the Upstate free flu vaccines Tuesday afternoon, and what's better than free, you don't even have to get out of your auto.

Dr. Susan fedewa at 98point6 Emergicenter in Lansing says the only practical way to fight the disease is to get a flu shot. Flu shots are recommended for those at higher risk, including seniors, people with underlying chronic conditions, children under five and pregnant women.
