Mass Flu Shot Clinic Scheduled October 4

If persons have coverage for the flu vaccine through Medicare or one of the following listed insurance companies, the Iroquois County Public Health Department can bill them directly.

Trivalent shots: These are the most traditional types of flu shots and are said to protect against influenza A H1N1, influenza A H3N2 and influenza B viruses. But, how do you know when the right time is to get a flu shot? Meanwhile, Delaware is reporting its first cases of the season, a month earlier than previous year.

With school back in session, kids are sharing germs and another flu season is around the corner, making now a beneficial time to get vaccinated.

The influenza (quadrivalent) vaccine is available to people over 50 years of age, pregnant women, and anyone who is 19 years of age and older with a chronic medical condition (s).

Still, even a disappointing vaccine lessens the severity of illness and saves many lives, officials say.

"Influenza vaccine's impact gets better the more people who get vaccinated". To provide more convenient access to the influenza (flu) vaccine, Kaiser Permanente will offer members additional vaccination locations beyond their regular physicians' offices, including drive-up flu clinics, pharmacies and walk-in flu clinics.

Quadrivalent shots: These are created to provide protection against the same viruses dealt by the trivalent shots and a fourth one, a variant of the influenza B virus.

"Children who need two doses of vaccine to be protected should start the vaccination process sooner, because the two doses must be given at least four weeks apart".

"There are several different flu viruses".

The vaccine, which is also available as a mist, is recommended for adults of all ages and children 6 months and older, she said. "No trivalent recombinant vaccine will be available this season", the CDC said.

The age recommendation for Fluarix Equivalent, which uses mammalian culture rather than chicken embryos, was changed from 3 years old and older to 6 months and older.

"Flu season will typically peak from November to December, so if you could get it in September or October you could increase your chances of not getting the flu", says Johnson. Isn't the flu vaccine supposed to protect you from the flu, not give it to you?
