We're coming off a deadly flu season.

Mrs O'Neill said "transgenerational" trauma is not widely understood, but it is "where the negative mental health impacts of a traumatic event, such as PTSD, can be passed from a parent to their child, even if the child has never experienced a traumatic event".

People most at risk for the flu are young children, the elderly and people with underlying health conditions.

The child's death was reported to the CDC during the week of Oct 13 and was linked to an unsubtyped influenza A virus.

About 26 per cent of people in the province received the flu vaccination past year.

Bev Vaughan, interim matron, said: 'Flu season is the respiratory service's busiest time of the year and we see a massive increase in admissions related to flu.

They are trying to fend off the watery eyes, sore throats, aching body, fevers and chills all associated with the dreaded flu, by getting the flu vaccine that should hold them through to the next year.

Councillor Stuart Wallace, chairman of the Adult Social Care and Public Health Committee, said: "Vaccination is the best protection we have against flu so I would strongly encourage everyone who is included in the at-risk categories to book a flu jab at their general practice or with another healthcare professional".

The flu vaccine - either as an injection or nasal spray - prompts the body to get ready to defend itself from intruders: the influenza virus.

The good news, at the moment, is that flu activity remains low throughout the country-with local activity reported in North Dakota and MA, and only sporadic activity elsewhere.

"You can be healthy, and you may not get that sick", Gupta said.

It can take up to two weeks for the vaccine to take effect, so the government recommends getting the shot soon, before flu season arrives.

The Fluad® vaccine will be offered to everyone aged 65 years and over in Northern Ireland.

"That doesn't mean you now have the flu".

Other unpublished data suggest that flu viruses, in the presence of mucus, can persist on some surfaces for up to 16 hours with very little loss in infectivity. She also said that factors such as "lack of sleep, stress [and] not eating well" compromise students' immune systems, making them more vulnerable to the flu. Most insurance plans will fully cover the cost of a flu vaccine, which isn't expensive anyhow. Now is the time to get that flu vaccination but so many nurses, and other medical employees, don't get around to it.

While people may avoid the vaccine because of tales it makes people sick, Ramsey said typically only five out of 100 people may experience symptoms.

Luckily for Temple Owls, the University is offering a free flu shot clinic this month in the Student Center Underground. EVERYONE! In an effort to reduce the spread of the flu virus, everyone should be vaccinated. Hand washing also is important, especially after shaking someone's hands.
