Will you get the flu shot?

Will you get the flu shot?
Doctors have been warning of a bad flu season in the USA because of what happened in Australia.
"Among the general population, about 39% have received the vaccine", said Stokley, co-author of a new CDCreport that canvased people by phone and internet in early November.
It may not sound like a disaster, since this year's flu shot is only 10 percent effective against the difficult-to-stop H3N2 strain.
She urged the Ministry of Health and Welfare to put the plan on hold until it has evaluated demand for the vaccines and secured funding to cover the costs of sourcing, delivering and administering them.
Warm weather continues, but wind and rain are on the way
Office meteorologist Charles Powell also warned temperatures could drop even lower than last week as northerly gales blast the UK. Monday is expected to be sunny, with a high temperature in the upper 40s, according to the National Weather Service .
"We have probably given an excessive 300 flu shots so far and we still have flu shots", Sheila Hubenka, a TB charge nurse with the health district said.
The CDC says a study done this year showed that flu vaccination reduced the risk of flu-associated death by half (51 percent) among children with underlying high-risk medical conditions and by almost two-thirds (65 percent) among healthy children.
"We do see a predominance of the H3N2 virus that was common last season", Flannery said. If you haven't yet - and especially if you are in one of the at-risk groups - please consider getting a shot right away.
'Immunization programs should work with community leaders to promote vaccination, ensure all members have access to flu vaccination, and ensure that all members understand the importance of flu vaccination in preventing disease, ' the authors said.
It's too early to tell if H3N2 will continue to be the predominant strain or whether H1N1 will surpass it, Brammer said. Some patients believe they can protect themselves by boosting their immune systems, eating well and making sure they sleep better, she said.
"Getting the flu is an very bad experience". "And that may dampen down the contribution of H3N2 this season, which would be a good thing".
Still, "I believe it's worth getting the vaccine", Siegel said.
Welltok combines its proprietary data on more than 275 million Americans with conventional clinical and claims data to reveal individuals who are more susceptible to contracting the virus. Qualifying children and adolescents can receive flu vaccine provided by the Texas Vaccines for Children program.
