Views How to prepare your workforce for flu season

Keili Marvel

If last winter repeats itself, the Christmas holidays could be the highlight of the flu season. "It's important every year that we monitor the Australian flu season because the following flu season in the United States and Europe could be similar", said University of Texas Medical Branch professor and study author Slobodan Paessler, DVM, PhD, in a recent press release.

Doctors say although the flu shot is about 10% effective this year, you should still get it.

For more information about Arizona influenza visit the ADHS website. However, this year's vaccine has not proven to be extremely effective. While health officials recommend everyone receive a flu shot, older people, young children, pregnant women and people with certain health conditions are more vulnerable to complications.

According to the Center for Disease Control, the flu is widespread in the Ohio Valley right now.

Many of those cases are people who did get the flu vaccine, though.

Fact: Each year, the seasonal influenza vaccine includes the strains that researchers found will be most prevalent throughout the season.

He said flu vaccines lessen symptoms and reduce complications.

"Each one of those outbreaks is obviously disruptive and frustrating for everyone concerned, and unsafe for the residents of those facilities, but on what we're expecting, it's still telling us that this is early in the flu season", she said.

Ten states have already reported high flu activity, mostly coming from one powerful and contagious strain.

Flu shots are available on the ground floor of Hamilton Health Centre between 8.30am and 11.30am and on Wednesdays only between 2pm and 4pm.

But Dr. Holder says it is still a good idea to get the shot.

- Clean and disinfect common surfaces, such as door handles, cell phones and keyboards.

The good news is that it is not too late to get the vaccination. Additionally, a map from the CDC shows that there is widespread flu activity in 23 states across the country.

CDC Deputy Director-General Philip Lo (羅一鈞) said the funding for the policy would be provided by the Paujar Charity Foundation and would be donated in yearly batches from next year to 2028, helping the government provide better protection for infants older than 12 months.
