If you answered yes to any of these questions. Speak with a Leading MD’s health care provider. You may have the flu.
How is the flu treated?
The flu, like a cold, is best treated by getting enough rest and drinking plenty of fluids, especially if you have a temperature. It’s critical to get medical help immediately if you’re having trouble breathing or have a high temperature. To avoid spreading the flu, people who have the virus should remain home from work or school and avoid going out in public. Staying home is important for your health and can prevent the spread of the flu virus.
How does the flu shot work?
The flu shot employs a trace quantity of the flu virus to drive the body’s production of antibodies, during this phase special “agents” target and eliminate certain bacteria to prevent illness. These viruses are not alive in flu injections; in nasal spray, a live virus is utilized, but it is very weak (attenuated) and cannot cause disease.
Should I get a flu shot?
To help prevent infection, the CDC advises that everybody over the age of 6 months get a flu vaccination.
The vaccine helps people stay healthy, so they don’t get sick, and it can also help prevent the disease from spreading to others. Virus prevention is especially important for those who are more vulnerable to infection, such as the elderly, people with weakened immune systems, and heart, respiratory, kidney, or liver damage or disease.
Does the flu shot have a 100% efficacy rate?
Is the flu shot considered safe?
Yes, the flu shot has been well evaluated and is entirely safe. Localized soreness, redness, or slight swelling may occur in some persons, all of which are transitory and induced by any injection. People who are allergic to eggs should inform there Leading MD’s provider, as the flu injection is made with egg ingredients.
If you are allergic to a ingredient in the flu vaccine – an alternative vaccine can be given to those people.
Is there a nasal flu spray available?
While a nasal spray is usually available each year, it’s usually reserved for the very young, the elderly, and those people who can’t get a vaccine or who don’t want to have an injection. Ask your Leading MD’s provider if you qualify for the nasal flu spray.
