  • Flu vaccine may protect against heart attacks

So far a total of 79 influenza-related deaths have been confirmed in Georgia, that's according to The Georgia Department of Health.

"The nasal flu vaccine is a great tool to have in that toolbox of different options people can get for the shots", Nordlund said.

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

"We wanted to provide reassurance that these vaccines, which are recommended for every woman during pregnancy, aren't creating a risk for the baby", she added.




This is the second flu-related death of a child in Harris County since flu season started in October.

In a 12-2 vote, the CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices said today that providers should be able to offer FluMist Quadrivalent (MedImmune) during the 2018-2019 influenza season, reversing its last two recommendations. Doctors say a combination of inflammation, an increased risk of clotting in the blood, and stress the flu puts on your body could be factors that might lead to a heart attack.

Both influenza and pertussis, nicknamed whooping cough because of the sounds patients make as they gasp for air during intense coughing fits, are most severe and potentially lethal for newborns who are too young to be vaccinated, researchers note in Pediatrics.

King serves as a co-sponsor of the Flu Vaccine Act, which officials said backs comprehensive research for a universal influenza vaccine administered once or twice and provides a lifetime of protection. The flu shot is encouraged for anyone over the age of 6 months, but is especially recommended for those over the age of 65, those who suffer from chronic heart and lung conditions, and pregnant women.
