Arkansas is urging residents to get vaccinated for the flu after a particularly deadly flu season previous year. According to National Public Radio (NPR), "every year, about 1 in 4 college students get the flu".

Luckily for Temple Owls, the University is offering a free flu shot clinic this month in the Student Center Underground.

Saskatchewan Chief Medical Health Officer Saqib Shahab said it's never been easier to get the vaccine and encourages people to get the shot early.

Here's what you need to know about the 2018-19 flu season. This is why the CDC recommends an annual flu vaccine for everyone six months and older.

So, there's no good reason not to get the shot.

But these myths can be harmful if they lead people to avoid the vaccine unnecessarily. There's the classic flu shot administered with a needle; and there's the jet injector vaccination, a needle-free option that uses a high-pressure stream of fluid with an injection gun, as seen here.

Meanwhile Sarri said Hazard could realise his individual ambitions while remaining at Stamford Bridge. I don't think the last three months he has been very happy, so I don't think so'.

The vaccine used for the flu shot protects against four different flu virus strains most commonly found during flu season. "The flu comes on much more rapidly and much more forcefully than the common cold".

The flu vaccine is a preventive measure for people with other chronic illnesses, such as cardiac, diabetes and lung diseases.

If you get the flu, you could very well pass it on to your children, elderly relatives, friends and work colleagues.

There are also NYS Health Code requirements stating that health care workers who choose to not get the flu vaccine wear a surgical or procedural mask. "And especially if you are young and healthy". However the true death rate from the flu is likely to be in the hundreds across the province. Flu strains may differ from year to year and efforts to keep up with its changing characteristics are not 100 percent effective.

The out of pocket cost for a flu vaccine is $30. This is unequivocally false. He noted during the H1N1 pandemic, about 50 per cent of people got the flu shot but after that, it dropped to below 20 per cent. Remember that the flu may cause serious complications and can even be deadly.

However, doctors admit that you can still get flu even if you have been vaccinated. "The flu can be more severe for pregnant women, compared to other times in a woman's life". This is the time of year for increased respiratory illnesses and pneumonia.
