An influenza vaccine is a combination of three influenza viruses namely, influenza type A with H3N2 virus strain, influenza type A with H1N1 virus strain and influenza type B virus strain.

"Now that flu season in New Mexico has started, I want to remind New Mexicans about the importance of getting their annual flu shot", said Department of Health Secretary Lynn Gallagher.

"Sporadic activity is typical for this time of year", Moore stated in a press release. This helps people who can't get a flu shot for health or medical reasons, by limiting the spread of the virus - those who are protected act as a barrier to the spread of the virus to others. We encourage everyone to become a flu fighter by getting vaccinated.

Less than one-third of hospital workers in the region got the flu shot last year, a downward trend that has continued for the past four years.

It takes about two weeks after vaccination for your body to build up immunity against the virus.

Whether these differences relate to clinical disease resistance remains to be seen, but in the meantime the authors are urging adults to get vaccinated early in the day.

There are suggestions for helping contain the virus and keep it from spreading to others.

The CDC notes that talking on your phone spreads germs from your respiratory system onto the screen, some of which can cause the flu.

Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when sneezing or coughing or cough into your upper sleeve or elbow, not your hands. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub. The CDC, Center for Disease Control, tracks the various strains of the flu and change the vaccines to help fight the most common strains that are found each year.

Both sites will offer walk-up vaccinations, while a drive-thru option will also be available at the Tustin site. For questions about the flu clinics, contact the Public Health Nursing Office at 203-256-3150.

According to Alberta Health, Albertans who are six months of age and older will be able to receive the shot The province has purchased 1.6 million doses for this season, enough to immunize about 35 per cent of the population.
