Flu shot could cut risk of heart attack

First flu-related death of a child confirmed in Harris County

The lower numbers reflect a similar pattern reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in recent weeks.

The study found that babies whose moms received the Tdap or flu vaccine, or both, during pregnancy had no increased risk of hospitalization or death in their first 6 months of life compared to babies whose moms didn't get the vaccines.

Free flu vaccinations are available at all Tennessee Department of Health public health clinics.

The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) released their latest surveillance report on the Flu in Texas.

Despite the new findings, researchers are still urging people to get vaccinated during this treacherous flu season. Cover your cough and sneeze, avoid people experiencing flu symptoms, stay home when you feel sick and wash your hands often.

That recommendation holds, the CDC says, because the vaccine is more effective against the three other major strains of flu virus, potentially preventing a second round of flu caused by another strain.

They say those 65 and older, pregnant women, young children and those with chronic health conditions are at higher risk for serious complications or death if they get the flu.

The effectiveness of the flu vaccine changes every year, according to the CDC.

Symptoms of the flu can include fever, chills, cough, sore throat, runny nose, body aches, headaches and fatigue. Providers participating in this surveillance network reported that for the week ending February 10, 2018, 8.5% of their patient visits were for influenza-like illness. Seventy-five percent of those children were not vaccinated.
