Camden County Offering Free Flu Shots to Residents

Show Grid

The Centers for Disease Control recommends that nearly everyone over six months of age should receive the flu vaccine.

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

Let's hope more hospital workers begin to accept the compelling moral arguments for being vaccinated and protecting their patients.

Because flu viruses are constantly changing, the vaccine composition is reviewed each year and is updated as needed based on which influenza viruses are making people sick, the news release states. Children under five and adults over 65, for example, are most at risk, as are pregnant people, smokers and people with medical conditions such as asthma, weakened immune systems and diabetes. Oeding emphasized the importance of the vaccine for those who interact with children under 6 months old.

They know, too, they're caring for people who are especially vulnerable to contracting the flu.

It prevents the flu in about 60 per cent of healthy people when the strains of viruses it contains correspond to the strains circulating. However, different viruses are responsible for the two illnesses, and the flu is more serious than a cold.

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.

That's right on track for a normal flu season.
