Coughs and sniffles around the office may be a good indicator that flu season has started, but health officials say it's too soon to know whether it will rival last year's severe season.

The Iroquois County Public Health Department, located in the Administrative Center at 1001 E. Grant St.in Watseka, has flu vaccines available to the public on a walk-in basis from 9 a.m.to noon and 1 p.m.to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

No pediatric deaths attributed to flu were reported to CDC this week, which means the 2018-19 season total remains at five. The CDC recommends flu vaccination for most people over the age of 6 months.

As an indication of these misbeliefs, a recent study found that 43 percent of Americans, believe that the seasonal flu shot can give you the influenza virus.

The MSDH says while vaccination is the best protection, basic infection control measures can also reduce the spread of flu and should be taken whether or not individuals are vaccinated.

Even if they do as they intend, that leaves considerably more than a third of adults (41%) who have not - and will not - get a flu shot, according to NORC. "It is possible to have the flu a couple of times in the season".

"If we don't get vaccinated, we are needlessly putting ourselves at risk of serious illness, but we are also gambling with the health of children and others around us who can't get vaccinated".

It was the 20th pediatric flu death recorded in MS since pediatric flu deaths became reportable during the 2008-09 flu season.

The Health Unit is therefore reaching out to parents, schools, health-care providers, and community agencies to encourage all pregnant women and children over the age of six months to get a flu shot.

In addition to vaccination, other ways to protect yourself and others from getting sick include washing your hands frequently, covering your cough and sneeze and by staying home if you feel ill.
