  • AHA: Flu Season Can Send More Heart Failure Patients to Hospital

So far, he says the vaccine was able to protect mice from multiple strains of flu. "That number was quadruple the average of 25 deaths each season over the last decade". The public also has the option to not to get vaccinated against the virus, even though it goes against health physician recommendations.

"Flu-mist is a live virus, the one that people get in their nose, but we don't recommend it because it's a live virus and it's not as effective as the shot".

Flu season has returned as the fall transitions into winter. The cost is $10.00 per shot for adults and children. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend shots for everyone over the age of six months.

It's not worth experiencing, if you can prevent it with the flu shot.

Darrell Gale, East Sussex Director of Public Health, said: "Flu is a very unpleasant illness and vaccination is particularly important for people at increased risk of the effects of the disease". Those hospitalized with flu include seven children aged 17 or younger. "Plus you are limited to what vaccine is offered: standard and high-dose and it is only 20-30 percent effective and yet some people still choose it".


The monitoring is done by the CDC'S U.S. Flu Vaccine Effectiveness Network, and similar studies are conducted in the United Kingdom, Canada and Finland, explains Dr. Chris Ambrose, franchise head with U.S. Medical Affairs, respiratory division at AstraZeneca, the maker of the FluMist Quadrivalent.

The influenza vaccine does not guarantee protection against the flu but it does lower the chances in contracting it. People should take additional precautions to lower their risk, including those who received the vaccine.

"The flu vaccine is not flawless", Basta said. "The single best way to improve influenza-related outcomes is to vaccinate people".

The vaccine is also available to carers of older or disabled people, people with reduced immunity, those who are very overweight, residential care home residents and frontline health and social care staff.

Oklahoma health officials say two people have died from influenza during the past two weeks following the deadliest flu season in the state on record.
