Doctors work on universal flu vaccine
We also researched bird flu strains by visiting a New England shoreline each year to take samples from birds that travel from the southern tip of South America and take a break to feed on horseshoe crabs. For a widespread declaration, Shelton said, at least half the districts in the commonwealth have to confirm the presence of flu through hospital emergency room records.
It usually takes between one and three days for flu symptoms to develop after catching the virus. A second vaccine for the elderly was licensed for the first time a year ago and has an adjuvant.

Does a flu shot actually give you the flu?
The flu is an extremely contagious illness.
In addition to getting the flu vaccine, there are other things that you can do in order to protect your health.
People who are suffering from a cold are more likely to have a runny or stuffy nose.
Officials no longer recommend getting the vaccine via nasal spray. The flu is a serious disease. "Every year, we see hospitalizations and deaths from the flu here in our region".

"The influenza vaccine is still proven to be the best protection we have against the flu and I urge everyone six months and older to get a flu shot now".
Vaccines are available at many pharmacies and physicians offices. To access the list, go to www.yakimacounty.us/275/Health-District, hover over or click the "Your Health" dropdown menu and select "Flu Shot Locations". "That is absolutely false".
Influenza vaccines, also known as flu shots, are vaccines that protect against influenza. "So far we're hoping for a fair match with the vaccine, but we do know that vaccine efficacy is lower if you're frail or elderly or if you are a child under the age of five". It causes fever, headache, sneezing, body aches and sore throat. This is your immune system doing its job, and should only last a day or so.
There's also the other method of self-defense: Washing hands.
