National Influenza Vaccination Week- Dec -07-13 -2014:The most effective way to prevent. the disease and/or severe outcomes from the illness is vaccination.

Posted on 2 December, 2014 at 21:19
This 20-14-2015 influenza season, protect yourself and those around you from Seasonal Influenza. No one should die of a preventable disease.

The flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat, and lungs. Seasonal influenza is not just a really bad cold, it is an acute viral infection that spreads easily from person to person through sneezing, coughing, or touching contaminated surfaces. 

  • Seasonal influenza viruses circulate and cause disease in humans every year, worldwide, and can affect anybody in any age group.
  • Seasonal influenza viruses evolve continuously, which means that people can get infected multiple times throughout their lives
  • Seasonal influenza viruses cause annual epidemics that peak during winter in temperate regions.
  • Seasonal influenza is a serious public health problem that causes severe illness and death in high risk populations.
  • An influenza epidemic can take an economic toll through lost workforce productivity and strain health services. 
  • Influenza is a vaccine preventable disease. 

Seasonal influenza viruses can cause mild to severe illness and even death, particularly in some high-risk individuals. Persons at increased risk for severe disease include:

  •  pregnant women,
  •  the very young and very old,
  •  immune-compromised people,
  •  people with chronic underlying medical conditions including, pneumonia, asthma and heart disease. 

Those who live or work with people who are at high risk should get vaccinated against seasonal influenza.

While seasonal influenza outbreaks can happen as early as October, most of the time influenza activity peaks in January or later. Since it takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body that protect against influenza virus infection, it is best that people get vaccinated so they are protected before influenza begins spreading in their community.

Antiviral drugs are available for treatment, however influenza viruses can develop resistance to the drugsVaccination is the most effective way to prevent infection and severe outcomes caused by Seasonal  influenza viruses.
The flu shot is a vaccine given with a needle, usually in the arm. The seasonal flu shot protects against the three or four influenza viruses that research indicates will be most common during the upcoming season.

Different flu shots are approved for people of different ages, but there are flu shots that are approved for use in people as young as 6 months of age and up. Flu shots are approved for use in pregnant women and people with chronic health conditions. Talk to your healthcare provider or nurse if you have any questions regarding which flu vaccine options are best for you and your family.

The single best way to prevent seasonal flu is to get vaccinated each year but good health habits like covering your cough and washing your hands often can help stop the spread of germs, prevent respiratory illnesses and may also help protect you against the flu. Vaccine is safe and it save lives
