  • Kentucky health officials urge you to get a flu shot

It was the deadliest in history and affected 500 million people around the world, one third of the world's population. CVS Health also serves an estimated 39 million people through traditional, voluntary and consumer-directed health insurance products and related services, including a rapidly expanding Medicare Advantage offering.

In that number, 675,000 were Americans. This flu vaccine was made just for senior citizens to give them better protection from the flu while covering 4 common strains of the flu virus.

The flu is still with us.

"Last flu season was severe, and the US saw a record number of flu-related hospitalizations and pediatric deaths", said Dr. Jennifer Shuford, DSHS Infectious Disease Medical Officer. The nature and virulence of the virus also fluctuates each season, as does the effectiveness of that year's vaccine.

Children fared better with a vaccination rate of 58 percent.

The state of IN has already recorded two flu-related deaths this season.


Doctors add now is a good time to get one, especially because it takes the body up to four weeks to develop its immune response and flu activity typically begins to peak in January.

"Many people may be working, studying or gathering in environments where they are readily exposed to the flu virus".

The first vaccine is called the trivalent and the second is the quadrivalent.

The CDC Vaccine Price List provides the private sector prices for general information. The guidelines from the CDC are based on age and other medical conditions. That, without a doubt, is a flu shot.

The flu clinic will take place on Saturday, December 8 and you can receive your flu shot from 9 AM - 12 PM (while supplies last) at our Public Health Nursing Office located at 100 Mona Terrace, Fairfield (in the white portable behind the Senior Center). More than 79,000 deaths were attributed to the flu, 185 of which were children. Anyone can get sick from the flu and certain people are at greater risk for serious complications from the flu. She has appeared on CNN, The Dr. Oz Show, FOX News, PBS and many others.
