Pueblo officials confirm first two flu cases of the this season

Every year no one is immune from influenza despite annual vaccines

"Be sure to get your flu shot early because it can take up to two weeks to take effect". However, government health officials have been concerned with the degree of the ineffectiveness of flu vaccines manufactured every year for the following year's flu season. The 2016-2017 seasonal flu vaccine was updated to include the new version of this protein; however, Hensley's lab found that the egg-grown version of this protein acquired a new mutation. You can have some side effects after vaccination, but this is not flu illness. You can't get the flu from the shot because the vaccine contains viruses that are inactivated or severely weakened.

THE flu jab is likely to offer limited protection this winter because the virus mutates during manufacturing, a study claims.

Conventional vaccines have been shown to be less than 60 percent effective when they're successfully matched to the now circulating strain. It is believed to be the best protection against influenza and the complications that come with it kills about 1,400 people in B.C. each year, Gray said. They are antigenically similar to the strain of vaccine.

The major flu vaccine antigen, hemagglutinin, is shown. Second, because flu viruses are constantly changing, vaccines are updated annually to keep up with the changing viruses. "We can protect ourselves and also our family, friends and the community", said family nurse practitioner Sarah Fincham, assistant clinical professor at Washington State University's college of nursing in Spokane. The fluid in the eggs is then removed and purified to get enough of the virus strain to make the vaccine.

The current strain of H3N2 emerged during the 2014-15 flue season and remains prevalent today.

Because the study was conducted in mice, it's too soon to say whether the vaccine would successfully work in humans. Once injected, these viruses stimulate the body's immune system to act against a protein that extends from the surface of the flu virus.

"To put this in other terms, our current influenza vaccine programs and technologies reduce influenza infections and hospitalizations by 4.75 percent and 6.9 percent, respectively", Weaver said.
