Experts saying this years flu vaccine is 10% effective

The county says the vaccine is available at its Division of Health main clinic at 2716 W. Central.

Rodriquez said that even if you get vaccinated in January, February or March, it's much better than not being vaccinated at all.

The new weekly FluView report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for week 48 ending December 2, 2017, is reporting widespread flu activity in 7 states - Arkansas, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and Virginia - up from 4 states the previous week.

Fairfield Medical Center takes an aggressive stance about getting the word out regarding the importance of vaccinations, starting with providing flu information and an offer to administer the vaccination to every patient who is admitted to the center.

While there has been a lot of discussion about vaccine efficiency after an article from Australia reported only 10 percent effectiveness this year, there's more to the story than that, Lantrip said.

Flu vaccination also has been shown to be associated with reduced hospitalizations among people with diabetes (79 percent) and chronic lung disease (52 percent). "Pregnant women should receive influenza vaccination in order to protect not only themselves but also their infants".

University of Memphis doctor Xinhua Yu believes only time will tell when it comes to how bad this flu season will be in Memphis this year. This protective benefit was observed for four months after birth.

The Ohio Department of Health, in issuing its most recent numbers, reiterated its stance that getting a flu shot is the best defense against the virus.
