Local Physicians Predict Heightened Flu Season

Thousands of Americans may get the flu this year

With flu season just around the corner, Dignity Health is hosting free flu shot clinics this week. "For all of these reasons, it is important for our faculty, staff, and students to get immunized." encouraged Laursen. The flu shot is $20.

As to his potential dangerousness, the flu vaccine is "considered safe by the world health Organization" and causes "adverse effects of conventional and mild": local reactions at the injection site, fever, or muscle pain, stressed the authors.

So please learn from my experience: Get your shot, and if you happen to be the unfortunate person who still manages to win the "flu lottery", go home and take care of yourself! The more than 65 years represent "one of the populations most vulnerable to seasonal flu in terms of mortality", and severe complications, and vaccination is therefore particularly recommended in this population group, remind the authors. A flu shot can help weakened immune systems ward off the flu. The H1N1 virus, which is an influenza A virus, the H3N2 virus, which is another influenza A virus, and an influenza B virus are all defended against with the antibodies being provided by BVU.

Flu shots will likely save thousands of lives this year.
