High dose flu vaccines recommended for seniors

Oklahoma's 2017-18 Flu Season Underway

A person might also get flu by touching a surface or object that has flu virus on it.

The flu virus changes from year to year, and this year's vaccine protects against the flu viruses that are expected to cause the most illness this flu season.

Further, Dr. Daniel Jernigan, influenza chief at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention told the Associated Press that: "We don't know what's going to happen, but there's a chance we could have a season similar to Australia". The seasonal quadrivalent vaccine also includes influenza B vaccine virus, a B/Phuket/3073/2013-like virus (Yamagata lineage). Since, Oman is a semi-tropical country, seasonal flu viruses appear throughout the year. "In the United States, millions of people get sick, hundreds of thousands are hospitalized and tragically thousands or tens of thousands die from flu each year", Dr. Jernigan said in a recent interview. Adults 65 and older, children, pregnant women and those with compromised immune systems are among those that are the most at risk. Infants need their first dose of flu vaccine at 6 months of age.

The HHSA is sponsoring several free flu-shot clinics this month.
