Iowa reports first flu-related death of 2017-18 season

Lindsey Wreden stocked her supply cart with vaccine vials, turned on her blinking "Flu Kicker" pin and set out to find the stragglers at Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center who hadn't received this year's flu shot.

As part of the 2017 Seasonal Influenza Immunization Program, Camden County officials stopped by another location in Runnemede on Tuesday, October 31st, to provide residents 9 years of age or older with free flu shots.

It's true that the effectiveness of the flu vaccine fluctuates from year to year and that it's less effective than other vaccines because flu viruses rapidly evolve.

Dr. Quinlisk says the flu is a respiratory illness caused by viruses.

The flu vaccine is widely available in Clark County. The viruses in the flu shot are inactivated (i.e., killed) which means they can not cause infection. If you live with or care for an infant younger than 6 months of age, you should get a flu vaccine to help protect them from flu.

The cheaper vaccine was used, despite a stronger - but more expensive - dose being found to be more effective, especially amongst the elderly. Those with fevers and cough should stay at home until they have been fever free (a temp less than 100.4 F) at least 24 hours without taking Tylenol or Ibuprofen before returning to work, school or daycare.

Relatives of people in this high-risk group, as well as health workers, are also targeted.

The flu is very contagious and can lead to serious complications, said Jalbert.
