  • CDC says nasal spray is back for this year’s flu season

As per this survey, it shows that young adults have been shown to have lower flu immunization rates compared to other ages, making it less accessible for students.

In addition, a 2007 CDC study found that the flu vaccination significantly reduced a child's risk of dying from influenza.

"We want Logan County residents to stay healthy this flu season, and getting a yearly flu vaccination is the best line of defense", Paula Beaty RN, Logan County Health Unit Administrator, said.

Despite this conflicting advice, Public Health Solutions in Crete says some immunization is better than none, and predicting the timing of the flu is hard.

The nasal spray is expected to cover all four strains of the flu this year according to the CDC.

At the open forum, Marzouki said one has to get immunised every year because the flu virus mutates.

The Centers for Disease Control recommend getting a flu shot before the end of October, in order to encourage as many people as possible to get vaccinated. Myerson said the shot is the inactivated version and anyone 6 months and older can receive it, and they cannot contract the flu from it. "Vaccination not only reduces the risk of catching the flu, it also reduces the chance that you'll be hospitalized".

The numbers are not entirely reflective of how many people were infected with the flu, Eiting said, as the department only tracked hospitalized cases in Auglaize County. The vaccine is also available from doctors offices and pharmacies.

"Unfortunately, many people choose not to get their annual influenza vaccine because of myths they believe about the disease or the vaccine".

According to the NFID, "Access to the vaccine at low or no cost (61 percent) and incentives, such as free food or gift cards (61 percent), were among the top offerings that students say would have a lot of impact on the likelihood of getting vaccinated". People are advised to get shots now as the vaccine takes two weeks to start working.

Dr. Ford says the flu hasn't hit her waiting room yet.

"You should get a flu vaccine before flu begins spreading in your community", the CDC suggests. "They think that the flu shot can give you the flu, but it cannot give you the flu, it's not a live virus".
