Most insurance companies, including Medicare, will cover a flu shot, Oeding said, and the health department participates in Vaccines for Children, which provides the vaccine to uninsured or underinsured people 18 years of age and younger.

The Macon-Bibb Health Department is holding a drive-thru flu shot clinic for residents November 9.

Of course, the more people protected, the better protected the community.

"The good news is, the virus that they're seeing is one that's included in the seasonal vaccine this year", Glashower said.

Mourinho: Shaw? It's Fellaini that 'worries' me
Shaw has kept his head down and impressed manager Jose Mourinho in recent weeks with his attitude to training, although the former Southampton academy graduate still found himself on the subs' bench until late in the League Cup victory over Swansea on Wednesday night.

The CDC recommends getting vaccinated before the end of October.

An 81-year-old central Iowa man died as a result of flu-related virus. The viruses in the flu shot are inactivated (i.e., killed) which means they can not cause infection. Oeding emphasized the importance of the vaccine for those who interact with children under 6 months old. It can also prevent flu-related hospitalizations. The flu comes on suddenly and symptoms may include fever, headache, tiredness, cough, sore throat, nasal congestion and body aches. However, different viruses are responsible for the two illnesses, and the flu is more serious than a cold.

The flu season has just begun but Tulsa health leaders want to make sure families are taking precautions.

"Some people delay getting a flu shot in the mistaken belief that vaccine effectiveness will wear off before winter, when flu season typically intensifies", said Dr. Alan Melnick, Clark County health officer, in a news release.
