  • Demand for vaccines early in 2018 also prompted the government to secure an extra 1.3 million doses

"There are some people who can't get a different variety of flu shots, but if everyone else around them have the shots, it helps to keep the prevalence of the disease down".

Along with the flu, Borgen said the public should be mindful of other respiratory illnesses over the winter months.

More than 300 sites in Vermont offer flu vaccine, including supermarkets, pharmacies and health care providers. Many institutions have policies mandating the flu vaccine, and those who choose not to get the flu vaccine must wear a mask throughout the flu season. Unfortunately, although it's easy to get the flu vaccine, not everyone does. Although flu vaccines are not ideal, they are the best way to prevent getting the flu. "And 79,000 people died - that's more than the average number of people who go to the Super Bowl every year".

The CDC is an excellent resource for information regarding the flu. The most common side effects are mild and resolve on their own within 24-48 hours. In a November 30 journal article in Open Forum Infectious Diseases, the Houston Methodist researchers explained how they began developing the website in 2017 when the greater Houston area experienced a major increase in flu cases.

Seventy percent of Garden State seniors with a household income of $75,000 or more have received a flu shot versus 62 percent of those in households earning $35,000-$74,999, and 61 percent of those earning less than $35,000.
