People allergic to eggs, safe to get flu vaccine

The Ohio Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that everyone six months and older get a flu shot as soon as possible.

Flu activity in OH has become widespread, the state's highest designation, almost a month earlier than past year and has resulted in a number of hospitalizations in Clark County already.

This season's flu shot is less effective than year's past.

"The current vaccine in the USA, in contrast to the Australian [vaccine], will work because we have most of the American H3N2 viruses, rather than the Australian one", Paessler explained. That means the vaccine should be as effective as it was past year.

"This (vaccination) should be routinely offered in the primary care setting, as per CDC guidelines, to all groups in which annual influenza vaccine is recommended", Greenhawt said.

Brammer said that other types of flu are around, including influenza A H1N1 and a couple of influenza B viruses. She said there are three main strains of flu going around.

If more beds need to be opened, she said they may "multi-purpose" some areas of the hospital, such as placing beds in the sedation clinic.


And even though the vaccine is only partially effective, it still will prevent many people from coming down with flu and make it milder for those who catch it, Brammer said.

"When the flu hits you, the average adult or child is down for several days", Patterson said. "We get them at work, but this year I didn't for no good reason", said Brooke Castillo.

The best ways to avoid the flu include staying away from people who you know or suspect may be sick; covering your mouth when you cough and nose when you sneeze; and washing your hands regularly - especially during the cold winter months.

The flu is being seen throughout the country and is very active in Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Texas, the CDC reports.

During the 2015-2016 flu season, an estimated 308,232 people were hospitalized in the United States because of the flu, Kelso and his colleagues noted.

According to numbers obtained through a Freedom of Information request filed by the New Democratic Party, hospitals at Hamilton Health Sciences have been running over capacity since October a year ago.
