Learning About This Year’s Flu Season: 2010

Posted by:

 

After last year’s H1N1 pandemic and the intense search for flu and H1N1 vaccines, Family Medical Walk-In Clinic wants to get you up to date and prepared early this year!



What’s New?


This year’s seasonal vaccines (injection and nasal) have been updated, as flu vaccines are every season to help protect against the three flu viruses that observation indicates will be most prevalent.


According to Anne Schuchat, M.D. and writer for flu.gov stated that experts predict that the H1N1 virus (that spread last year) and two other  seasonal flu viruses will continue to spread throughout the country this year.

 

 

Good News!


The 2010-2011 flu vaccine will once again protect from three strains of the flu; this year the vaccine will protect against the 2009 H1N1 and two other influenza viruses (Influenza A H3N2 and Influenza B virus).  So, instead of having to get two different shots, one for the flu and one for H1N1, now you only have to worry about getting one!


Some people are already calling this year’s flu vaccine the “triple threat” or the “all in one” flu vaccine. The good news is that this year’s vaccine has been made no different than the vaccines made in previous years. (flu.gov)

 

 

How To Prepare Your Family For This Year’s Flu Season


The CDC recommends following the rules of 3:

  1. Take time to get a flu vaccine
  2. Take preventative actions everyday to help stop the spread of germs
  3. Take flu antiviral drugs, if your doctor prescribes them

Parents: Please print this flu information sheet and post it somewhere the whole family can see.  It has a lot of great info. pertaining to preventing, treating, and managing the flu.

Who Should Be Vaccinated?


According to flu.gov, everyone 6 months of age or older should get vaccinated for the 2010-2011 flu season as soon as it is available in your area.

 

Family Medical Walk-In Clinics will begin distributing their first shipment of vaccines starting October 1, 2010!

 

 

Should I Get the Flu Shot or Nasal Spray?


Flu.gov has provided an awesome chart that breaks down whether you should get the influenza shot or nasal spray by your age and/or medical condition.  Check it out!

Again, Family Medical Walk-In Clinics will begin distributing their first shipment of the flu vaccine starting this Friday, October 1, 2010.  And remember, there is no appointment necessary!

    Thank you articulating your ideas on this blog page. Similarly, the fantasy in connection with the banks purposes anytime speaking about property foreclosures could be that the standard bank will not have the payments. There’s a lot of one’s this financial institution calls for repayments in some places. If you’re also insidewithin all pit, they ought to typically drive you pay the specific monthly payment entirely. On the other hand, i am not saying stating that they’re going to have type of repayment schedules in any respect. In the event you plus the standard bank can certainly have the ability to operate something available, the specific real estate foreclosure process could possibly end. On the other hand, if you happen to still miss monthly payments underneath the new program, the property real estate foreclosures progression can pick upwards in which them eventually left away from.
