"Your best chance at protecting yourself and others is to get a flu shot soon". Traditionally it protects against 3 types of influenza: Influenza A, (H1N1), influenza A (H3N2) and influenza B. The treated mice were entirely protected from lethal doses of the flu.Kevin Hollevoet, a bioengineer at Leuven University in Belgium who was not involved in the new study, noted that this strategy has been used to produce antibodies against other infections, such as H.I.V."I'm not surprised that it also works for flu", said Dr. Hollevoet. But if you are going to get it, you should get it now. Of these children, 772 (23%) had a positive test result for influenza and 1674 (50%) were vaccinated in the enrollment season.

Myth: I exercise and eat healthily, so I don't need to get vaccinated. Even healthy people can be infected and spread the flu virus without showing symptoms.

Those most vulnerable to complications include very young children, the elderly, people with underlying heart and respiratory conditions, and those with weakened immune systems.

"One of the common ones (misconceptions) that we do get is that the flu shot will cause the flu, and that is incorrect", he said.

"The patient chooses whether they want to be immersed in a room full of puppies or they want to go into a diving experience with dolphins or space exploration or a beach in the Maldives", said Saleema Bhaidani, director of pharmacy innovation and professional affairs for Whole Health.

Using antibodies from llamas, scientists reported that they have made a huge step forward in creating a universal flu vaccine; under a draft proposal in Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's office, USA diplomats could be prohibited from using the phrases "sexual and reproductive health" and "comprehensive sexuality education"; the Department of Veterans Affairs' (VA) 5-star rating scale for its hospitals is a mystery to former officials at the agency and experts in healthcare metrics.

Washing your hands: It's a good thing to do anyway, but especially if you are prone to shaking hands. In Week 43, 28 counties reported influenza cases. "We still give them the flu shot".

The Indiana State Department of Health says the victim was 65 years or older, but did not indicate which county the death occurred in. "It's the best protection you can have".
