Get your free flu shot today! Manufacturing, health care, education, assisted living/memory care and hospitality are just a few of the major industries in our community and all of these business sectors have a shared resource, they all rely on employees to operate.

Erie County Health Commissioner Gale Burstein says she expects to see a higher number of cases this flu season. "The best way to prevent the flu is to get the flu shot, wash your hands, and avoid people who have a fever or cough". Already, the CDC has worked with over 60 countries to strengthen their surveillance and laboratory capacity to help inform practitioners which strains should be included in the seasonal flu vaccines developed each year.

Only one-third of pregnant women have received a flu shot, even though the overwhelming majority of them visited a health care provider at least once, according to another new CDC analysis of data gathered from an internet survey conducted during the first week of November.

Flu season is upon us and schools across East Texas are seeing its effect.

The CDC report indicates that vaccine effectiveness, which can vary each year depending on type of virus and sub virus in circulation, is expected to be similar to the effectiveness of past season.

The nasal spray vaccine is not recommended this year.

"The situation is under control, and there have not been any new reported cases", the GES further assured. Investigators calculated the annual number of seasonal influenza-related deaths for those 33 countries.

"The flu-shot-phobic people will hear that and say, 'Of course!"

Visit www.tulsa-health.org for more information about the flu, including flu vaccination clinic locations and hours of operation, and accepted insurance and other methods of payment.

For the cases of suspected meningitis, the GES said it was "awaiting the medical report from the Ghana Health Service, including their recommendations on the way forward, and will update the public accordingly upon receipt".

Seasonal influenza is an acute viral infection that spreads easily from person to person and circulates worldwide. One false misconception is that an individual can get flu from the vaccine. The vaccine is the same formula that was used during Australia's most recent flu season- which is similar to what the USA will face.

Besides the vaccination, Burstein says there are things you can do to protect yourself.
