Kentucky doctors confirm two flu cases in Jefferson County

Medical news County Health Department: 'People of all ages are advised to get vaccinated'

About 2,000 Americans age 18 and older participated in the annual online survey.

Past studies have found flu vaccines are safe during pregnancy, though there is been little research on impact of flu vaccinations given in the first three months of pregnancy.

The provisional end of season data published by Public Health England (PHE) also shows that the vaccine reduced the risk of flu in adults aged under 65 years with long-term conditions by 40% in 2016/17, which is within the expected range.

The state's flu toll has doubled since the last season, as it has in NSW, and the stats have tripled in Queensland, with more than 19,000 cases recorded as of mid-August.

None so far reported in IN, but as we inch closer to October, you'll be hearing your physicians and pharmacists asking you, "Do you want to get your flu shot?".

"Children are the great distributors (of) the influenza virus". He has preliminary evidence that egg-adapted mutations were behind the weak protection seen with the vaccine used in the 2016-17 season, he says. It takes two weeks for full immunity. The risk of an allergic reaction is less than one in four million. The vaccines can be administered to those as young as six months old.

Influenza is one of the world's most common viral infections.

Guillain-Barré Syndrome - a potentially life-threatening disorder in which the body's immune system attacks part of the peripheral nervous system and can cause total paralysis and death. It is especially important for some people to be vaccinated against influenza because they are at higher risk of developing serious complications, like pneumonia, if they get sick with the flu. Flu vaccinations can reduce flu illnesses, doctors' visits, and missed work and school days. In these cases, a doctor will be able to advise on the best course of action.

There is an intradermal vaccine and an egg-free version, too. For example, SIRVA could require scans and the expertise of an orthopedic surgeon; vasovagal syncope could lead to a fall that results in a head injury. Staff and faculty across Duke can get the free vaccine at roving campus clinics and at Duke Employee Occupational Health and Wellness (EOHW). This was nearly 60% more vaccines than the 595,467 administered by community pharmacies in 2015-2016, with nearly three-quarters of community pharmacies (8,451) in England delivering the national NHS Flu Vaccination Service in 2016-2017 - 1,256 more than the previous year.
