IN has already recorded two flu-related deaths this season.

In conjunction with National Influenza Vaccination Week (Dec. 2-8), CVS Health (NYSE: CVS) is reminding customers that it is not too late to get a flu shot to protect themselves and their loved ones from the flu.

It can take up to two weeks after vaccination for antibodies that protect against flu to develop in the body, so getting vaccinated now would still provide protection from the flu over the holidays. "We don't know whether the flu season will be good or bad this year".

The disease spreads through coughing and sneezing with symptoms that can include high fever, chills, headaches, exhaustion, sore throat, cough and body aches. Cover your cough and sneeze, avoid people experiencing flu symptoms, stay home when you feel sick and wash your hands often.

Influenza activity is now at low levels in Montana; however, this is expected to change in the coming weeks.

The Fairfield Health Department will be participating in a statewide effort urging all individuals to get a flu shot and have the power of the "Florce". Recently, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) released a report that more Americans were killed by the flu last year than at any time in 40 years.




Getting a flu vaccine can reduce illnesses, doctor visits, hospitalizations, and missed work or school. It also spreads when people touch certain surfaces or objects contaminated with the droplets.

"Many people may be working, studying or gathering in environments where they are readily exposed to the flu virus".

Remember that antiviral medications are a second-line defense against the flu.

"Everybody six months and older should have a flu shot", said Sarah Engstrom, Registered Nurse at the Hematite Health Clinic.

The flu vaccine will be available in injection form for people 3 years and older.
