The Clover Health Flu Shot Monitor included key findings for New Jersey. Jennifer Femino, FNP-BC, Family Nurse Practitioner/Director of Quality Improvement at North Shore Community Health and member of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP), explains why and how you can help your community prepare for flu season. People at high risk of serious complications include young children, pregnant women, people with certain chronic health conditions like asthma, diabetes, heart or lung disease, and people 65 years and older. Leon was scheduled to get his flu shot soon. More serious adverse events are rare.

Among those who visited a doctor's office, just 2.2% said the reason for their visit was flu-like illness; this is considered a normal rate for this time of year, according to the CDC.

And, communicating the concept of "herd immunity" improves an individual's willingness to get vaccinated.

Determining how health professionals can most effectively combat influenza misinformation is a critically important question. "Therefore, it is important to protect yourself and those around you against flu viruses".

Last winter's flu season was a rough one, dominated by a particularly troublesome virus strain.

"That's the strain that's a little bit better match to our vaccine", he said.

Oscars 2019: Kevin Hart quits as host amid tweets row
Even though Hart is now deleting the offending tweets, one imagines he hasn't had a change of, ahem, heart about them. This leaves the award show without a host for the time being, although the search for a replacement is surely on.

Previous year was one of the deadliest on record, with more than 80,000 people dying from the flu.

The shots at the parish health units on December 13 are no cost to everyone who participates. Furthermore, the vaccine's side effects are minor, and it does not cause the flu, as is believed by 31 percent of those who are not planning to get the flu vaccine.

The two main factors in the effectiveness of the vaccine is the health of the patient and the match between the influenza viruses that the influenza vaccine is created to protect against and the influenza viruses spreading in the community. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that pregnant women with continued concerns or questions about the influenza vaccination should discuss these with their healthcare provider in order to make an informed decision regarding vaccination. In some cases, people were exposed to the flu before their immune system had time to build a response to the flu vaccine.

The CDC is an excellent resource for information regarding the flu.

Flu activity is starting to increase across the United States, so if you have not yet had your flu vaccine, now is the time!
