Why it's important to get a flu shot

The first death from the flu this season has been reported in CT.

Pregnant women, young children, the elderly and people with underlying health conditions and their caregivers are encouraged to get their flu shot.

Health and state officials say even if a flu shot is only 20 percent effective, it's better than nothing at all. The patient was over the age of 65.

A total of 41 flu-positive lab tests have been reported across the state. Martin developed a risky condition in his legs, something usually seen in patients who experience traumas like auto accidents.Doctors performed emergency surgery, but he died less than 24 hours after his first symptoms appeared."I thought to myself, if only I had known that I was taking the ultimate risk of not protecting my children against this quiet killer", McGowan said.

A single ticket sold in SC matched all numbers in the historic drawing to make the lucky holder of the ticket rich beyond belief. No one has won the Powerball jackpot since August 11, when a man from Staten Island, New York, won $245.6 million.

Several factors contributed to avoiding a repeat of last year's "brutal" season, including an increase in the numbers vaccinated, Dr Sheppeard said.

A free walk in clinic at the University of Regina on October 22 is one of 24 locations where people can get their flu shot in Regina this year.

"Don't wait. Get your flu shot early in the season to protect yourself, your family and those to whom you provide care". Doctor and nurse practitioner offices are offering the vaccines.

FLU vaccines, the subject of many myths, are a major defence in helping people with conditions like Asthma, Heart Disease and Diabetes, to stay well this winter. Researchers have been working on a universal vaccine, he said, but that's still a long way off."So get the vaccine every year".
