Medical Monday: protect yourself against the flu

71 per cent fall in number of flu cases

There are many weeks of flu activity left and the CDC continues to recommend getting a flu vaccine to help protect against influenza.

The health department said that flu vaccination should also be a priority for those persons who live with or care for persons at higher risk for influenza-related complications.

Tennessee's county health departments are holding special "FightFluTN" events across the state Wednesday to provide flu shots at no charge to increase the number of people vaccinated in Tennessee.

With National Influenza Vaccination Week (NIVW) in full swing, customers can visit their neighborhood Rite Aid pharmacy without an appointment to get their seasonal flu shot from a certified Rite Aid immunizing pharmacist and help themselves stay healthy this holiday season. Infants younger than six months can not be vaccinated, making it important that anyone in a household where a young baby lives get a flu shot to protect the child.

The flu, or Influenza, is a viral infection of the respiratory tract. Studies have also shown that if someone gets sick while vaccinated, they have less severe illness, reduce their risk of being hospitalized, and spend fewer days in the hospital when they are hospitalized. But when conditions like the flu and pneumonia coexist with heart disease, serious and sometimes life threatening trouble with the heart and lungs' primary job of delivering oxygen and fuel to all the body's tissues develop. Most people recover from the flu without complications, but nationwide there are up to 200,000 hospitalizations from flu each year.

Though mild side effects like temporary soreness of the injection site and mild fever are possible, the injectable flu shot is the only recommended delivery method for heart disease patients. "We don't know whether the flu season will be good or bad this year".

This year, Rite Aid is once again teaming up with Dr. Jennifer Caudle, a nationally renowned health expert and practicing family physician, to raise awareness about the importance of getting vaccinated.
