Keep nasty flu bug at bay, get vaccinated!

However, Berg said people can still get the shot after that time frame and "well into early spring", when flu activity picks up.

Two years ago the nasal spray vaccine was taken off the market because the Center for Disease Control said it was no longer effective for that particular flu season. "Even if it is not a ideal match for all this year's flu strains, the flu vaccine will provide some protection and reduce your chances of needing to be hospitalized if you do get sick".

We want everybody to get the flu shot - people of all ages - but those of us who are younger have healthier systems.

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

Flu season is right around the corner.

"A live vaccine is going to have actual particles of the virus, but it has been reduced down to where it will not actually cause the flu", said Dr. Livingston.

So far this year, there have been six reported cases of the flu in North Dakota, according to latest data from the health department.

Infants among 5 stabbed at New York City daycare
- Police in NY say at least five people, including three infants, were stabbed at an overnight day care center in Queens. The man who was injured had a child at the day care while the woman was a daycare employee, according to NBC New York .

Vaccines to fight the flu can also protect women during and after pregnancy and protect a baby after delivery, the CDC said. "We strongly encourage all to get their flu shot and get it early, preferably before the end of October". The peak of flu season comes sometime between December and February, but the season can last as late as May.

The age recommendation for Afluria Quadrivalent, an inactivated influenza vaccine, was changed from 18 years and older to 5 years and older. "We just got in a big batch of flu immunizations, and we expect to be distributing that the first week in October", says Dr. Janice Ford with University Health Conway.

The seasonal vaccines are meant to protect against the influenza strains experts believe will be the most common during the flu season.

"Now if you are over the age of 65, there is something called the high dose flu vaccine".

Furthermore, a National Foundation of Infectious Diseases (NFID) survey was conducted in October 2017 for college students 18 to 24 years old who were now attending a 2-year or 4-year college or university.

"Children who need two doses of vaccine to be protected should start the vaccination process sooner, because the two doses must be given at least four weeks apart".
