"The Australian Government has been carefully monitoring vaccine effectiveness for seasonal influenza vaccines and is committed to exploring enhanced vaccination program arrangements through the NIP, including the use of advanced vaccines for those aged 65 years and over into the future".

"This data adds to the already strong body of evidence of the benefits of flu vaccination, especially for children", said Patricia Stinchfield.

No child is vaccinated with a completed consent form.

(NFID), along with public health and medical organizations, urged the public and healthcare professionals to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendation that everyone age 6 months and older be vaccinated against influenza each year. Additionally, a study in Clinical Infectious Diseases showed that flu vaccination reduced deaths, intensive care unit (ICU) admissions, ICU length of stay and overall duration of hospitalization among adults hospitalized because of influenza.

In fact, when they looked at influences on the day of vaccination itself, mood was found to have an even greater impact - accounting for between 8% and 14% of the variability in antibody levels.

Our local clinic providers, pharmacies, and public health offices are offering many flu clinics this fall.

Free NHS flu vaccinations are also available to individuals with asthma, COPD or other long-term lung conditions, heart problems, diabetes, kidney disease, liver disease, stroke or a transient ischaemic attack, lowered immunity due to disease or treatment such as steroid medication or cancer treatment, neurological conditions such as multiple sclerosis or cerebral palsy, problems with your spleen e.g sickle cell disease or the removal of the spleen or are seriously overweight (BMI of 40 or above).

But now, researchers from the University of Nottingham have another tip that might make your next flu shot work even better - get the shot while you're in a good mood.

During the 2016-2017 flu season, the hospitalization rate was double that of the 2015-2016 season and higher across all age groups. "We encourage everyone six months and older to get vaccinated every year". Research showed that 57 percent of children who were severely ill with the flu had not gotten the flu vaccine. "Our goal is to increase coverage for children of all ages". Pneumococcal disease is often a common and deadly complication of influenza.

He said that for this season, health officials are recommending only injectable vaccines, not nasal spray flu vaccine.

According to officials, the vaccine is safe and does not cause the flu although some people may have mild soreness and redness near the site of the shot and a low fever or slight headache.

DOH-Pinellas also provides the flu vaccine for a fee at its centers, as do many other locations in the county.
