MS has 1st pediatric death of current flu season

State health department reports first pediatric flu death of 2018-2019 season

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has established the week of December 2-8 as National Influenza Vaccination Week to highlight the importance of continuing flu vaccination throughout the holiday season and beyond.

Correcting misinformation about the flu vaccines is hard, and the academic literature provides mixed signals about approaches to tackling this problem. Most people have likely had the flu at some point - with symptoms such as a constant cough, sore throat, a runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headaches and fatigue - yet many myths and misperceptions remain. Policies regarding the flu vaccine vary from organization to organization.

Serious reactions to the flu vaccine are rare.

Also in an effort to keep patients safe, Kaweah Delta has a year-round visitor policy in place, which helps facilitate a quiet, healing environment for patients, said Kathy Wittman, Kaweah Delta's Infection Prevention Data Coordinator. Irma and her husband, Fred, died within a few days of each other. Among children, effectiveness rates were higher: Children who got the shot were 59% seek medical care for the virus, the CDC reported this year.

The flu vaccine is available at doctors' offices, some pharmacies and Park County Public Health.

Health officials are making yet another push to make sure everyone gets their flu shot. People with compromised immunity. I also share that there are many other precautions in stopping the spread of the flu and other illnesses, including good washing, cough etiquette, and staying home when you are sick. The top reasons show concern over the vaccine's side effects and efficacy. Flu is more likely to be severe or even deadly in these groups than among healthy adults. The Department accepts most private insurance and participates in the Texas Vaccines for Children Program.
