Each year in the USA, the flu is estimated to cause between 12,000 and 56,000 deaths and up to 710,000 hospitalizations. Influenza is spread from person to person and comes with many nasty and sometimes lethal symptoms which include fevers, body aches, malaise, headaches, runny noses and sore throats.

Public health officials in East Sussex are urging people to get protected before winter kicks in.

The flu vaccine is recommended for Delawareans 6 months of age and older.

Imagine getting one flu shot and having it last you the rest of your life, no boosters needed.

Health officials also reported 183 flu-related deaths among children, although the CDC estimates the actual number of deaths was more than 600.

Several groups have a higher risk for flu-related complications: children under 5, adults over 65, pregnant women, and American Indians and Alaska Natives.

The Hanover and District Hospital is reminding the public to roll up their sleeve and receive their flu shot.

One is that the flu vaccine can give you the flu.

The DPH said 15 people, including two children were hospitalized due to the flu.

Many misconceptions about the flu vaccine linger.

"I think some parents feel like that's an easier way to get the flu vaccine", Dr. Bhargava says. By protecting yourself against influenza, you are also protecting your family, your household, your workplace and ultimately your community. Simply taking two doses of the now available vaccine will not be protective.Finally, organ transplant recipients may benefit from booster doses, studies have shown. Speak to your healthcare provider or pharmacist to determine which is best for you.

"I encourage people, even if they don't necessarily want to get a flu shot for themselves, to do it for others, to do it for those they love and those who are in their circle", O'Neal said. Washing your hands frequently, containing your coughs and sneezes when in public and avoiding crowds during flu peak season are all good suggestions.
