Arizona officials urging people to get flu shots as season approaches

Arizona officials urging people to get flu shots as season approaches

The flu season may have peaked but it is not over yet.

"It's a common misperception that the flu shot gives you the flu". The study did not estimate risk of miscarriage after flu vaccination, and therefore, the findings can not be used to estimate the probability of miscarriage for pregnant women who received a pH1N1-containing flu vaccination in two consecutive years.

So, bottom line, it would be better to wait until later in the fall, but an early flu shot is better than no flu shot at all.

The agency noted there's an ongoing investigation to study this issue among women who were pregnant and eligible to receive flu vaccine during the 2012-2013 through 2014-2015 flu seasons, with results anticipated in late 2018 or 2019. "I'm going to make universal influenza vaccine my top priority over the next couple years", Fauci says.

Tuesday, Sept. 26, 3:30-7 p.m. There is no appointment needed, but children in need of a flu shot have to have had a well-child visit within the previous year.

Dr. Paul Schulz with Norton Healthcare explains, "Runny nose, cough, fever and you can have some of the general symptoms like headache, sore muscles, sore joints that sort of thing but the primary symptoms are respiratory".




Sheehy said the shot is the best way to stop the spread of the flu.

The Comanche County Health Department will begin its seasonal influenza vaccination clinic schedule starting October 2. "So, we're also seeing significant increases in respiratory illness and pneumonia".

There are many locations you can go to get a flu shot, including pharmacies, doctors' offices, and the city Health Department.

They will be administered from 9-11 a.m. Monday; 2-4 p.m. September 28; 9-11 a.m. October 2; 2-6 p.m. October 5; 9-11 a.m. October 16; 2-6 p.m. October 19; 9-11 a.m. October 23; and 2-4 p.m. October 26.

The CDC does not recommend getting the nasal spray vaccine. A valid DukeID must be presented, and no appointment is necessary. The health department will accept SoonerCare, Medicare, all private health insurance, cash, checks, or credit cards as payment for flu vaccine.

In Virginia, the rate of people receiving their flu shots remained relatively stagnant between 2010 and 2014, VDH data show, with just under 50 percent receiving vaccines.
