AHA: Flu Season Can Send More Heart Failure Patients to Hospital

The best way to prevent seasonal flu is to get vaccinated every year, but be sure to practice good health habits, such as handwashing with soap and water, covering your nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing and staying home when sick.

Donna Arnett, an epidemiologist and dean of the University of Kentucky College of Public Health, who was not involved in the new research, said the increased risk of heart failure hospitalization found in the study was small but significant enough to send a message.

As well, doctors and health care professionals are able to provide the flu shot for families and babies six months of age and up.

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. Unfortunately, the benefit does not seem to extend to other groups who may have compromised immunity, such as those with inflammatory bowel disease, leukemia, H.I.V., or kidney failure.While men and women 65 and older are also at high-risk from complications of flu, boosting does not seem to provide benefits in this age group. "But it's still given because some people are afraid of needles and they have that option but we highly don't recommend it", said Michelle, Licensed Vocational Nurse at Kaiser Permanente Martinez Medical Center.

"You may have a few days after you get your flu shot where you perhaps aren't feeling 100 percent", Han said.

However, the nasal flu vaccine, FluMist, is made from weakened but live virus cells and may cause flu-like symptoms.

Getting the flu shot early allows the body to build up its immune system and beat the bug before it makes you ill.

One is that the flu vaccine can give you the flu. "Thanks to the help of the Somerset County Department of Health, we will be administering 200 flu shots, first-come, first-served, to the community at large". If you have questions about which flu vaccine is right for you, talk to your healthcare provider.

"Diana and I encourage Illinoisans to safeguard their health by getting a flu shot", Gov. Rauner said.

Wash your hands frequently.
