Early indications suggest harsh flu season in US

Flu season A girl from Melbourne eight years old dies

Flu season is upon us, so here's as good a reminder as any to go get a flu shot.

Its a quick prick to protect yourself from the flu all season long, but not all flu vaccines are the same.

There are many types of flu viruses.

Flu season is just around the corner and doctors want you to stay ahead ahead of the virus.

Even though new observations about the flu vaccine continue to be made, experts continue to recommend annual flu vaccinations for children and adults. That was one of the later peaks on record and flu season most commonly peaks between December and February, according to the CDC. The ideal time would be before the end of October. Catching flu on top of these can easily develop into something very serious and could get bad enough to require hospital treatment. Vaccination is more important for people with weakened immune systems, as well as those who are pregnant, elderly or live with or care for others at high risk.

United Nations bans 4 ships from all ports for North Korea ties
In November past year , the Security Council capped North Korean coal exports and then in August imposed a complete ban. North Korea is already banned from exporting coal, along with lead, iron and seafood products.

Some people avoid the flu shot because they believe they might catch the virus from the vaccine, but that's just a myth. Dr. Pritish Tosh, MD, of the Mayo Clinic, told the Daily Mail that the influenza vaccine doesn't contain any live virus.

Colby said he hopes the community takes advantage of getting the flu shot since Ontario is one of the only jurisdictions in the world which administers it for free. "Vaccination for those not insured through University is available at $20", said Megan Nichols, a nurse at the Health Services Office.

Residents may also make appointments to receive flu vaccinations. If you wish to attend the walk-in, visit Suite 206, in the Student Recreation and Wellness Center during the aforesaid hours.

For those without health insurance, PHMDC can help.

"It's important to get your vaccine especially if you are at higher risk for complications".

US Rep. Al Green, Houston Democrat, unveils articles of impeachment against Trump
The rapper compared Trump's sins to those of President Bill Clinton, who was impeached in 1998 though not removed from office. Earlier this year, Mr Green announced that he was drafting articles of impeachment that he planned to bring before the House.

The flu vaccine aside, the best defense against flu viruses is good hygiene practices.

But Australia had a particularly rough flu season this year - during the Northern Hemisphere summer - putting national health officials here on guard. So make sure you frequently clean and disinfect all hard surfaces that may be contaminated with germs.

Both do carry a risk of mild side effects that can occur with the standard flu shot. Flu symptoms include fever and chills; cough, sore throat and runny or stuffy nose; muscles aches and joint pains; headaches and fatigue; nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.

The flu can spread quickly around campus but steps can be taken to help you stay healthy.
