"The Flu Express is for persons 10 years and older".

Ott says it is particularly important to receive the flu shot to protect those within society who cannot receive the flu shot as well as those who are immune compromised.

Ott says the public should not confuse influenza with what some call the "stomach flu" which is actually a gastroenteritis viral infection.

So far, state health officials said there's been 42 laboratory-confirmed cases of flu since the season began on September 30, 2018.

Public health officials in East Sussex are urging people to get protected before winter kicks in. These people should get vaccinated because they are at higher risk of having serious flu-related complications. The flu shot is also covered if you are a Medicare Part B recipient.

Everyone over six months of age is recommended to get the flu vaccine. "That number was quadruple the average of 25 deaths each season over the last decade". Every year influenza causes between 12,000 and 49,000 deaths in the United States.

The CDC estimates 80 percent of child deaths occurred among unvaccinated children. Flu vaccine is especially important for people with chronic health conditions, pregnant women, young children, and people older than 65.

A child died in Florida during the first week of October.

The Hanover and District Hospital is reminding the public to roll up their sleeve and receive their flu shot.

Many misconceptions about the flu vaccine linger.

It's not worth experiencing, if you can prevent it with the flu shot. "But it's really nothing compared to the severity of illness that can occur with influenza".

The DPH said 15 people, including two children were hospitalized due to the flu.

Ott maintains the flu vaccine is indeed safe and has benefited millions of Canadians since 1946.

"The flu vaccine is not flawless", Basta said. Simply taking two doses of the now available vaccine will not be protective.Finally, organ transplant recipients may benefit from booster doses, studies have shown. VaccineFinder.org offers a searchable database of vaccination locations.

For more information on the free vaccine, speak to your local school or GP, or visit www.nhs.uk/fluvaccine for more information. Speak to your healthcare provider or pharmacist to determine which is best for you.

And think of those around you. "We are still at the beginning of flu season, so now is the time to get the vaccine", said Dr. Jennifer Avegno, New Orleans Health Department Director.
