Flu shots available to Sedgwick County residents starting Monday

The Cape County Health Department will be holding flu clinics at several locations.

It's not. Though the vaccine is not 100% protective if you still get the flu after vaccination it is more likely to be a milder case, with less risk of deadly "flu-related complications". Flu activity most commonly peaks in the United States between December and March. It attacks the body by spreading through the upper and or lower respiratory tract. They include: fever/chills, sore throat, muscle aches, fatigue, cough, headache and runny or stuffy nose. Some people may also vomit or have diarrhea. "So a host population that potentially has more crowding, larger classroom sizes for children, or even certain types of social contact networks, potentially sustains higher transmission rates for the same virus or pathogen". And so should the people who are around children all the time or who care for them.

How well the flu vaccine works can range widely from season to season and can be affected by a number of factors, including the similarity between vaccine viruses and circulating viruses. Any person in close contact with someone in a high-risk group should get vaccinated.

Wernsman also wants to make clear the Flu and Pneumonia shots are two different shots and are also available all day at the Cape County Health Department.

Drive-by flu shot clinics are coming once again to north Georgia, and there is no easier, safer way to protect against the flu while helping prepare communities for disaster.

There is no live virus in flu shots and the vaccine can not cause the flu. Residents must bring all health insurance cards to the clinic. This year seniors have a second alternative, Seqiris' Fluad with "adjuvant", the first USA flu vaccine to contain an extra compound created to rev up the immune system's response to the shot.

"You can have the parent hold the child in a specific position that they can get the injection that way because that is a comfortable, loving way that they are being held", said Bunevich.

Flu is most unsafe for people over age 65, young children, pregnant women and people with certain health conditions such as asthma or heart disease. His practice acquired vaccines late last month and multiple employers have already scheduled vaccine clinics at their job sites.

The Centers for Disease and Control reports that manufacturers projected they would provide between 157 million and 168 million doses of injectable vaccine for the US market.

Copies of the vaccination form can be found at www.arlingtonma.gov/health.
