"And you can get them really anywhere. Yes. So anyone 6 months of age or older may be vaccinated against influenza. And there are certain high risk groups that are especially prone to getting sick with influenza and getting very sick with influenza. So that includes kids that are under the age of 5, but especially under the age of two, anybody who has chronic illnesses, whether they be respiratory or cardiac associated neurological illnesses, diabetes, rheumatology, associated illnesses, and then pregnant women are also very susceptible to getting sick and very sick, even to the point of needing to be hospitalized with influenza. And in addition to that, anybody 65 years and older also is at greater risk for contracting flu. And there is a high dose flu vaccine that's available for 65 years of age and older population to be vaccinated against influenza. And as you mentioned, there are so many places available to get your flu vaccine, the Department of Health is also able to offer those vaccines.

"flu vaccine" Discussed on Baby Your Baby
"Is it safe for pregnant women to get the flu shot? Yes, in fact, it's recommended for pregnant women to get the flu shot. The flu vaccine is only available for people who are 6 months of age and older. So for moms to get vaccinated while they're pregnant, is the only way that they're going to be able to be protected themselves and then provide protection for their newborn child as well. Otherwise there are a few people who wouldn't be eligible to get the vaccine, but mostly that has to do with their current health status. Everybody really 6 months of age and older should be able to get the flu vaccine unless your doctor tells you otherwise. And they're pretty widely available. I mean, you can go just about anywhere these days. And get your flu vaccination, right? It's true they have flu vaccines even in local pharmacies. You can drop by and get a flu vaccine. Doctor's office, we also have a public flu vaccine clinic at parent primary children's that is open Monday through Friday 8 30 to 5 p.m. and we accept drop ins, no appointment is required. And I've even heard of some schools. I know my son's school, in particular, they're doing like a flu vaccination night. And they're kind of seeming it all around Halloween. It's called the flus and booze or something like that. And they're promoting the flu vaccination for students, which I think is great because, you know, that's sometimes that's the only, you know, the only way we can get that vaccine in our kid's arms. And so I think that's great that they're helping out with families. Yes, it is. I love that. I hadn't heard about that before, but any there's a lot of community options out there for getting your flu vaccine. Yeah, and you know, like you were saying, it's just, you know, another step that we can take to help not only keep ourselves and our families safe, but our communities safe as well. You had mentioned that we had started to possibly see a couple of cases of the flu already coming back into Utah. Yes, we have. We have seen a few cases of influenza already this year in Utah. So it's already begun to circulate. And the CDC does recommend that you get your flu shot when it's available. So now is a great time to go and get your flu shot. It takes a couple of weeks for full immunity to develop once you are vaccinated. So it's best to get it before there's too much flu going around. If you wait until influenza is running rampant in the community, you might get sick with it before your immunity develops after getting your flu shot. So think about that when you're considering the timing of influenza vaccine. Get it at least two weeks before you want to be fully protected against it. Sure. And you know, you're also saying that, you know, any sort of major flu outbreak, that could lead to other problems with providing care as well. We've already seen some RSV also and that can there can be a correlation with that between the flu and RSV and outbreaks like that, right? Oh, definitely. Once we start seeing respiratory infections on the rise, there's always a risk that we'll see more respiratory infections. And RSV is enjoying a very early surge this year. We started seeing RSV escalate in our community in July. Now typically this doesn't happen until later in the year. So in order to prevent these co infections, it's really easy to get one illness and while you're immune system is working so hard to try to get you better from that, it's not able to always fight off all the other illnesses you may come in contact with. Doing as much as you can to prevent yourself from getting sick by getting a flu vaccine and a COVID vaccine will help you from getting sick with other illnesses as well. Now, if you could look into your magic 8 ball, which, you know, that's predict in the future right now. And we're talking about RSV, and we know we saw that early surge in the summer, which is rare. Yes, very rare. Looking forward prediction wise, if you could, I'm not trying to put you on the spot. But what does that look like then come a winter? If we've already seen this early surge, does that mean maybe it's come and gone or do you think that that means it's only going to get worse come winter? I believe it's only going to get worse if you look at the data that is out there right now it is still continuing to climb. And it will continue to get worse as winter keeps us indoors more and prevents us from being outside. It's just a prime environment for respiratory viruses to be able to circulate. We spend more time with families and loved ones in close contact during the winter months. These are all the kinds of situations that lend to spread of respiratory viruses. And so because of that, once again, the importance of getting our flu shot protecting ourselves from something that we know we can protect ourselves from is crucial right now. Exactly. The flu shot in and the COVID-19 vaccine. And then, you know, we still have to remember all of the same hygiene protocols that we've been so diligent about practicing. Of course, you know, keeping our hands clean and washed and surface is clean and washed and seeing when we don't feel well. Or, you know, if our kids don't feel well, keep them home from school. I mean, we can't let those things go by the way said either. You're exactly right. And this is so important that we continue utilizing the same methods that we started with last year with COVID. Using good hand hygiene and helping our kids, utilize good hand hygiene as well. Wearing masks when the situation calls for it. Getting vaccinated against these vaccine preventable diseases. Staying home when we're ill, the interesting thing about influenza is you can become infected with influenza and start shedding the virus about 24 hours before you start showing symptoms of influenza. And that means that you could be making other people sick if you're not taking those precautions washing your hands covering your cough and you'll continue to shed that virus for 5 to 7 days after you start showing symptoms. So to be aware of that and to keep yourself and your loved ones protected, just be aware that you'll continue to shed that virus for a few days after you start showing symptoms. And that is a good reminder that a lot of people might not automatically think about when it comes to getting the flu. Yeah. Yeah. Definitely. I think we tend to think as soon as a fever is gone that we can go back to work or we can go back to school. But we should be aware, especially with influenza of that continued shedding of virus that will go on for a few days after our symptoms start. Yeah, absolutely. Well, let's break it down one more time for our listeners just so that they know, you know, where they can get their flu vaccines and who is able to get them because it's really anyone.

Arizona: Banner Health Imposes Vaccine Mandates for Employees
"Health has announced. All 52,000 employees are required to be fully vaccinated by November, 1st. To our legal analyst Monica Lindstrom says Banner has a strong reason for doing this, but the hospital system may be on the hook if something goes wrong during the vaccination process if an employee gets the vaccine due to banners requirement, and then there are injuries due to side effects banner may find itself involved in a lawsuit. There will be exemptions allowed. Banner is the largest private employer in Arizona. Dr. Simone Wild, is an infectious disease specialist with South Shore health, She tells Arizona's morning news. She understands why Banner is mandating vaccines. That is probably going to become more popular where more hospitals are going to mandate just like with the flu vaccines in many hospitals, many different states. We want people to get vaccinated. She calls it a travesty that all health care workers haven't been fully

When will I know when I can go and get a vaccine?
"Hello this is corona cast a daily podcast all about the coronavirus. I'm health reported teigen tyler physician and journalists culture. Norman swan choosy the twenty third of february the second day of national immunization. That's right and we've had saw so many questions from audience about how the vaccine role it's gonna work how you're gonna know when it's your turn in the queue and rather than us answering those questions we thought we'd bring in loren roberts who's a health report at one of our colleagues in the abc science unit because lauren's been looking into the vaccine rolette and how it's gonna work and she's here to answer your questions. Welcome lauren thank you good morning. Carl orange relief is test. Somebody on carcass cass. She knows what they're talking about talking about. I'm talking about the okay. Whatever lauren. let's get straight into it. We've got dolores asking. She's just by heggie practice and they have no idea how the vaccine is going to be rolled out. They waited eight weeks for their flu vaccine last year. What are the logistics. That are involved in the vaccine. Rollout will because there's lots of different phases when not certain about how people are going to be notified through the light rollout. So we're talking about rollouts gonna happen in the latter half of this year. We do know that people that are included in the phase. One eight of the vaccine rollout. So that's i care. Workers people that are currently living in h care. Quarantine workers a lot of these people. They're going to be told by the employer and have the coronavirus vaccine lined up by their employer and then probably get the vaccine at work so people that can h care for example. They'll probably get their vaccine de but it's the latest stages that we're not too sure about. We know that there's a good chance that will eventually be up to register online to get the coronavirus vaccine. I'm but at this stage there is to register. It's a little bit of a white and say so just to be clear. Lauren and give us a flavor as well. In israel people were contacted because they had the electronic health records in the insurance public insurance companies. You're saying is that this whole strategy is going to rely on us registering and then seeing how we qualify at. What stage of the priority list. But it's important thing now to just make sure your medicare details up tonight And if you can have it linked to you my gov and then we know that the federal government has spent about thirty one million dollars in a public information campaign and a lot of the details about the light of rollout which moisture israeliens going to be included in is going to be coming out there so it'll be posted. tv campaigns. That'll be a lot of information on the website but right now it's just that fight that we really nari. They are going to be getting their vaccine soon. We know that they can probably be finding out through their employer but everyone else. We're kind of just going to have to wait and say
AstraZeneca Vaccine Rollout Put On Hold In South Africa
"Drugmaker. Astrazeneca is racing to adapt its covid vaccine to combat new variants of the virus. South africa suspended the use of that shot in its vaccination program after small-scale study found the vaccine offered minimal protection against mild to moderate disease caused by the south african variant. That study has not yet been peer reviewed. South africa will continue offering vaccines from john. John is awaiting advice from scientists about how to proceed with the astra. Zeneca shot guys. Go the weird thing about this. That i don't understand i've heard this story repeated several times this morning already but what i don't understand. Is you know it offered limited support against mild to moderate versions of of this of this disease when it comes about. But what about in terms of hospitalizations. What about in terms of deaths because seems to me that every one of these vaccine said in in what they know. So far has shown Less effectiveness when it comes up against the south africans stream. What's been important. Most of them have shown a huge amount of success in preventing severe disease. Maybe eighty five percent or better and about one hundred percent when it comes to the death and that's really which would probably be the focus at this point. It's it's not like you and -ticipant that you're never gonna get sick again. We live with the flu vaccine knowing that you very likely even if you get the flu vaccine you might end up with flu this year but you might have a a weaker version of that. So that's what. I don't understand this case. Is this for them to actually stop using the vaccine at that point suggests that that it's a worst picture but i haven't heard that reported out. Yeah we haven't seen it reviewed. It is interesting. The stated play at the moment which i think he'd have to describe overall as win despite individual vaccines not necessarily doing well against individuals strains of the astra zeneca one does deal quite well with the uk strain which is where it's being used most of all of the moment so that's encouraging. They also said they should be able to develop by full late. Fall new booster shots for the different strains deal with like south africa wants that i would say relatively optimistic as is the likes of the novak's far seemed to deal quite well with the south africans train again yet. Peer reviewed so i agree. It's sort of scary on the surface when you initially see some of these things no wants to get the south african strain and every country wants to stop the south africans strain spreading within its within its borders but but we're not a terrible position as things stand despite quite a stock. I actually just doesn't understand why. I the idea that they would stop using this vaccine. Maybe it's less effective than the other ones. They've shown now important to have context with us. I think there's an issue here. Which is you. don't want if you have. If you have choice. Between the pfizer vaccine for example and the astra zeneca vaccine for example. And you think that the pfizer vaccine has even marginally more efficacy than astrazeneca vaccine in this regard. I think you try to push people towards one over the other. I think the secondary issue though is and i know. I'm as i'm as hopeful as anybody about what's happening here but if we don't get ahead of it especially in the united states and so many other places around the world meeting get ahead of it if we don't stop out even are the quote unquote that's running around here. It will very soon turn into the south african the south african version because that is coming to other parts of the world and so part of it is. We do need to find a way to hit this thing and hit it hard before and try to snuff out as much as we can. And frankly at the rate we're going we're not doing the great job of that but the longer couch on this if you if you if you can get a if you can get a better higher efficacy vaccine fantastic but that's the situation we're dealing with. There's not enough to go around. So would you say forget it. I'd rather not get one in wait months. If that's the case for taking the astra zeneca in the united states astrazeneca's not available in the united states. And no no no. No no no no. That's but that's what. I mean in south africa to stop giving that it's not like they have enough vaccine to give everyone a vaccine at this point. My question i don't know is it that much less effective in terms of of hospitalizations and death. And i don't know the answer to that but it would suggest that perhaps it is if they're willing to take that off the market berry that it might not be as effective against is much more permanent asset so that that the trade often in weighing up these decisions i mean i totally get your point in your question but the trade off is different from than deciding not to use it say somewhere like uk europe or the us improved in those regions unlike in the us because the is still very minor in those spaces but totally. Get your point.
COVID-19 vaccines to roll out to pharmacies across U.S.
"To begin distributing Corona virus vaccines to pharmacies as part of its plan to increase the vaccination rate nationwide.

More needles in the haystack: vaccine candidates proliferate
"Just as soon as it became clear that a novel virus outbreak in china was going to become a global concern. It became clear that the world would need a vaccine in those early days that seemed impossibly distant vaccines often take the better part of a decade to develop and test now just a year on and several are already approved in many jurisdictions then in the space of a day last week encouraging results from two more but in the intervening year. The garona virus has done. What all viruses do. It's mutated and that as a complicating factor to an already complicated global. Rollout out so that you've seen quite exciting. The first is from novak's an american company and the second is from johnson which is belgium. But it's part of johnson and johnson also condruct company. Slovenia jong is our healthcare correspondent. There almost completely effective against the worst cases of covid nineteen. They're also easy to star in regular fridges. Which makes them. Very easy to distribute more widely than the vaccines. We already have approved but they also have some key differences. Okay let's take them in turn. What is the the nova vaccine. So the novak's vaccine is made of a lab made version of the spike protein which is part of the virus so immune system would recognize the and that's how develop immunity against the virus itself. It's a more traditional method vaccine making then the modern in pfizer vaccines which are already being used around the world and the number of vaccine was tested in britain and in south africa in britain it was almost ninety percent effective against symptomatic covid. Nineteen given into shots. Twenty one days. Apart in south africa it was only around fifty to sixty percent effective. Okay and The vaccine the vaccine was also tested in several countries. America south africa and latin america. The youngson vaccine is made out of the pike protein of the virus which is deliberate by virus. That's how it gets into your body. Virus is harmless but your immune system recognizes it. That's how you develop immunity crucially. It's a vaccine now. The results on efficacy are also very encouraging. The vaccine reduced mother of the severe cases of covid nineteen by seventy two percent in america but in south africa. The effectiveness wells also much lower. Same as the novel vaccine. It was just around fifty seven percent. This being said comparing scenes is very tricky because the trials have been conducted at different times so during the and pfizer vaccines when those results came out the variants that we have now weren't circulating widely nonetheless all the vaccines are highly effective in preventing hospitalization and death. And that's the most important thing to keep in mind but both of these vaccines in the trials in south africa. Were less effective suggesting that the that both of them are less effective against the south african variants of the virus. Yes that's right. There are less effective but not ineffective if is around fifty sixty percent which is reasonably good. Say this was to be expected. Because laboratory tests for the and the pfizer vaccines have also hinted that they may be less effective against the variant from south africa. But this will not be the last variance we keep seeing new variants emerging around the world. There may be some that are already here. But they're not detective because not enough sequencing happens in most countries so this is different something that we should be prepared for. But how worrisome is that there is already a very into that is that is sort of unpicking. The efficacy of some of these vaccines mean. This is something that we have to live with. Mutations will continue to evolve and we'll see more like those that vaccines are less effective against several vaccine makers are already working on modified jabs targeting the mutations so we'll see is probably something similar to what we have with the seasonal flu vaccines you get a shot. Every year which is customized circulating strains of the virus. The problem is that with the flu. There are systems around the world that have been set up to track those viruses. lead systems. Are well running. They've been around for decades so vaccine manufacturers no every year which trains to put in the vaccine there is no such system for covid nineteen america and some other countries are setting up variant surveillance. But this is not a global effort which means that we may have very ends emerging around the world for which the existing vaccines are less effective. And we don't know about that and what about in the meantime the existence of these potential new vaccines that seem to be effective and the potential for these various. How does that change the kind of global roll out plans for what we do have and do know eastern you. Vaccines are excellent news because we have a shortage right now of vaccines globally and even in the countries that have the most supplies for the moment. Novak's has promised to deliver about chew billion doses of this year. Half of that will be made in. India johnson johnson also think that they can make a billion doses. This here half of that is going to go to kovacs which is a global facility that will supply vaccines to developing countries. So these vaccines are particularly good news for poorer countries. Because they're easier to store and distribute the johnson and johnson is just a single shot which gives it the massive advantage but of course the country has purchased the vaccine to be delivered and as we can see production. Doesn't always run on schedule. We saw that in in the tussle for vaccine is between the eu and britain. For the astra zeneca shots and then of course getting the vaccine into people's arms also presents. Its own challenges. As we can see particularly in europe and in the us as well sign extend the distribution is often tied up in bureaucracy or logistical challenges on the ground or even in some cases people not wanting the vaccine. Do you think should have taken in total that that essentially this grand will get ahead of the virus before the virus gets ahead of humans efforts. I think we've already made tremendous progress. I mean if you think a year on goal we couldn't even dream of having a vaccine so quickly and now we have at least five vaccines tested in large scale. Proper clinical trials which are vastly effective. I mean they're almost completely effective against hospitalization and death. There are some which are also doing clinical trials so we may see in the coming weeks months more successful. Clinical trials being announced the west production of all these vaccines gets going in the next couple of months. Supplies will be steady. So i think that by the end of this year things will look much much better. Thanks very much for joining us. La thank you jason.

And we can combine coronavirus fluid. We also have enormous feet vaccines or the three major causes of respiratory Elissa seasonal basis. We think we can have a great combination vaccine. Some of the news today was the European Union's export ban on vaccines. How did that affect you? What do you think about that? It seems like a vaccine, nationalism, front and center. It. It is what we worried about a year ago, and that's why we established Eight different manufacturing facilities and partnerships and seven different countries were in India. We're in Europe or the U. S. And we're in Asia and so There's a lot of flexibility with what we do. Standard. You've gone back over your contracts as a result of the trouble that AstraZeneca has have having. We've gone back over our contracts Contracts like Have you looked at your contract with the U. I had is it? How does what is happening with AstraZeneca and the problems that it's having with the EU? In terms of who gets who gets the shots first? Have you looked at your contract that he looked at the language of then you confident that you're okay? Well, we will be. We have not signed a contract with the U yet we're negotiating contract with you. Has. Do you think he will change the way you approach that contract? Result of what the hell are we? Yes, we will pay a lot of attention to what's going on right now. And make sure that you know we want to be We want to be as transparent as possible. About what our production Forecast is gonna be and things happen, and so we also have to have it in the contracts that if there are delays And then we'll We'll make provision for that. So how does that How does that work? I mean, if you have a delay in one plan and doesn't have to be in Europe, any plan, we have a delay in one plant. Um, do you then have to recalibrate like where you're sending? What vaccine like we've never had to deal with something like this before. So how do you choose when there's a delay? You're right. We haven't and that's something that we are looked, you know, looking to We're looking to try to have enough capacity. That weekend that we have flexibility to if we missile, you know, miss making a batch in one particular plant we can. We can provide product from another. It's It's not trivial, because there're a lot of regulatory issues. It's if you get regulatory approval in Europe for a particular plant. You can't automatically switch product from India to Europe, for instance, so it xcom placated. Stand. If we if we delay certain regions in providing vaccines for them. What is the risk their Israel's miles ahead. The U. K's doing okay. Europe is behind their part of the emerging markets that that really haven't had any major vaccination programs under way at this point How does how does that Staggered rollouts. Do you think affect the way that this pandemic is going to progress? Well, you know, this is why we have the strategy that we do and we formed partnerships with people. We believe that That the best way to solve the pandemic issue is to have global production and distribution of our vaccine. And that's why we partnered with the Serum Institute, for instance of India. And they have promised to make you know we have the classy without ceremony, making about a billion doses. They have the capacity to make a billion plus doses. They are extra, the world's expert in distributing vaccines In the 92 low income countries, so we can't we didn't know how. And so we parted with them. And so they will. They will work with Gabi. For instance, this is a global alliance for vaccines. To distribute and get registered. You know, a billion doses for low and middle income countries and we'll we'll take the office it part of the population and we'll work together to get the vaccine at the same time. Because this is this is not a it's not a U. S problem. Solving the U. S problem is not to solve the pandemic issue. It's gotta be everywhere and so that's what we're working to do. Yeah. No kidding. Um, speaking of emerging markets I wanted Tioga your take on Do you have any data on the Brazil variant and the reaction of the vaccine and how that might affect the U. S trial? Since we now have that variant here? Right? We don't Obviously, to the extent that those people in the trial have the Brazilian variant, we'll get data on that. But we don't now have data on that. So what we have I think we're pretty remarkable that were the first company to have efficacy data against three circulated strange, but but but we don't have Resilient stand. We really appreciate talking to you. Thank you so much. We appreciate all the hard work that you're doing as well. Thank you very much.

Are talking about the company having efficacy data on three strains of Corona virus and also working on a combined coronavirus flu and maybe even other seasonal diseases type of vaccine. Also negotiating contracts right now I want to be as transparent as possible about what potential Reduction forecasts they have. Let's bring in Dr Lawrence Hour, and it was a novel out more about all of these various vaccines. Then we do. Lawrence hour, of course, that Professor emergency medicine at Johns Hopkins University doctors our talk just a little bit about the noble X vaccine before we get onto the jnj vaccine and others. What are you hearing about it and when are you anticipating using it? I think everyone is very excited to hear these data's these data from Novavax and the efficacy of 89% of exciting from that faces trial in Britain. I think also, even though the data from how it's working on the South Africa variant is disappointing to see, Um it is still promising that they could immediately take a look at these results and analyze them. On Batman means that they can start to get to work immediately on things like a booster like we're seeing from their necks, for example, So you know, this vaccine has.
China's Sinovac coronavirus vaccine 78% effective in Brazil trials
"The world are betting on a vaccine from China to help them stop the coronavirus. On Sunday, for example, Brazil gave emergency use authorization. This vaccine made by the Chinese pharmaceutical companies sign of AC Countries are embracing the Chinese vaccine, despite conflicting reports about how well it works. NPR health correspondent Maria Godoy reports nearly two weeks ago, researchers running a late stage trial for sign of X vaccine in Brazil announced it was 78% effective against Cove it which sounds pretty good. But then last week, they revised those numbers, saying the vaccine prevented disease on Lee about 50% of the time. So what's the truth? Natalie Dina, Bio statistician at the University of Florida, says it all depends on how you define efficacy. So when we talk about vaccine efficacy, often we think about a single number. But actually there are a lot of different types of efficacy. And you could think about it as a spectrum. Dean says vaccines typically work best to preventing severe disease. That's what the Brazil trial found 78% of the time the sign of act vaccine protected people against moderate or severe disease. Or even mild disease that needed some medical assistance. But when the researchers included what they called very mild symptoms that needed no medical attention. The vaccine's effectiveness dropped to 50% as we can to include milder and milder cases. It's natural to see a bit of a drop in vaccine advocacy sign of AC is conducting trials in various countries and they haven't released much of the data. John More vaccine researcher with Weill Cornell Medicine, says that's made it hard for outside scientists to know exactly what's going on. It's signed by press release, the Chinese are being well, characteristically less left and transparent. Even so, from the data that is available, more says it's clear that the son of that vaccine is less effective than those from a journal and five Her those vaccines on the whole protect against disease around 95% of the time. More says That's not surprising because previous data had showed that the vaccines from Adana and Fizer Both of which used a new technology called Emma Rene triggered a stronger immune response. Then the sign of act vaccine most people in the field believes that the antibody responses to correlate of protection on the you know the strength of the antibody Responses matters. Natalie Dean says the less effective of vaccine is a preventing disease, the harder it is to pinpoint its efficacy. When the vaccine is closer to 50 60%. That range of uncertainty can be a lot bigger. That may help explain another head scratcher. Different clinical trials in different countries have reported starkly different efficacy rates for the sign of a vaccine. From 50% of Brazil to 65% and Indonesia to a stunning 91% in a smaller study in Turkey, You need a lot more data to distinguish between different levels of advocacy, so it might also just be kind of statistical noise to a degree. But even if the sign of X vaccine is only around 50% protective That's still substantial. It's better than the flu vaccine some years, and it does meet the minimum threshold for emergency use authorization set by the World Health Organization. That's not nothing. It's much better than last thing. Dr. Denise Scared, is an epidemiologist with the Save in Vaccine Institute in Washington, D. C. She says the data show the sign of X vaccine protects against severe cases of Covic. And that could have a big impact in places like her native Brazil. They healthcare in Brazil is about to collapse in many cities. The situation's very critical and having a vaccine that will prevent people from being hospitalized. That will be I'll be a great impact for us. Maria Godoy NPR news

So, man matter fact, doctors that I've seen lately have advised me to get a flu shot, and you always did. Black advised me to get a flu shot never have in my life. I've been thinking about it. But there appears to be if you believe that stuff on television, Different types of vaccine that is, is one that's stronger and they're warning. When you hear the ad, it's get the shot. And then there's 87 reasons not to get it. Why are there different grades of regular flu vaccine? And will this be the case when the vaccine is established for covert? Well, let's just untangle this. Let's first talk about the flu vaccine, the flu vaccine regular flu vaccine. Yes, yes, It's a good idea for everybody. And I'm going to get mine this week. And we have learned from the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine this week that people who received the flu vaccine in the year before testing positive for covert 19th there, nearly 2.5 times less likely to be hospitalized with a severe form of the disease. And those who are not vaccinated. So it seems like the the flu vaccine kind of stimulates your immune system to react. All viruses are released more than just the flu vaccine. The flu virus eso there is some added benefit. It's not Totally protective against Kobe. You're still going to need your immunization against Cove it, But so there's the flu vaccine and then With regards to the flu vaccine for those over 65. There's an option to take a stronger flu vaccine, thinking that the immune system may not be as vigorous as you're getting older, and that's why we see so many more deaths with Cove it over the age of 70. Then we do under the age of 70. So you have talked to your doctor, whether you need the stronger flu vaccine over the age of 65. It's a case by case basis. It is OK, so that But why did you convey them all at the drug store? You have to get some from your doctor. How do people know where to get keys? It depends in your local area. But right now, much of it is being given out by your Pharmacy. Ask your PCP, your primary care doctor what Their policy is, and they will. They will tell you all right, so lot of confusion.

"In two of them The second episode of disease was actually worse. One wasn't to unexpected. It was an elderly woman with a bone marrow issue but the other was a younger man who had more serious disease. The second time I think now that it's documented were probably going to look for it more oxygen and I think find it. The issue will be what is that duration? We already know that antibodies, Wayne overtime, but it will be different based on age and variety of other medical issues that somebody mine half. So we see waning of. As soon as eighty days after infection and we see antibodies present as long as years afterwards at least in the case of SARS. Now, we don't have years experience yet with SARS Kobe too. But I think the same thing is going to hold some people will become susceptible very quickly other people perhaps not for years, and that's an area of active inquiry to try to understand that. But yes, I think we're going to be looking for reinfection more frequently now that we know it occurs well speaking, vaccines, Greg I know that you had your flu vaccine last week and I went down and had mine. I employ cafeteria at Mayo, clinic. This morning I've had many people ask me well, is it really important to get a flu vaccine and if I get a flu vaccine, will it make the any vaccine that comes out for covid nineteen less effective because of already had this flu vaccine this fall what do you think about that? I think what they're they're asking about is a phenomenon called a viral interference. The idea that if you have to viruses or two vaccines, do you in some way interfere with the immune response we have no evidence of that something could change of course when it's used across hundreds of thousands and millions of people. But at this point, we have no evidence of that. What we do have evidence of is that influenza on and it can be unpredictable sickens, tens of millions of people. In the US, every year hospitalizes hundreds of thousands and kills tens of thousands iota thing we know from two studies that have studied well over a hundred thousand people is that simultaneous infection with Kobe end.

"The flu vaccine does not protect you against coronavirus, but this year it's really important to get the flu vaccine because if you do get flu, it's going to be really hard to tell flu and cold but infection apart, so it's been to result in anxiety on your part. It's also going to result in Need for testing for both flew off. Influenza and potentially quarantine and inconvenience. So it's important that you do everything you can to stay healthy and not get the flu at all. How safe is the flu vaccine doctor? There's been questions like a flu vaccine is probably the vaccine that we have used the most off over the years because everyone needs to get vaccinated against the few empty. So this vaccine has a really good safety record. It is manufactured the same way each year. What changes is the vaccine the vaccine strains of the virus strings and the vaccine are changed but the manufacturing process is the same every year and because so many many millions of doses are used around the world. We have a good sense of any safety issues with it. It's not something that's using the select population where only a few doses are given you my name. Identify a safety problem. So I would say that the flu vaccine is very very safe. And it's rigorously vetted is that correct? Doctor all vaccines in the US are regular see that then it takes anywhere from in general six to eight years for a vaccine to come to Market because of the rigorous process that the vaccines are put through to ensure that they do what they're supposed to do which is protect you against the disease and also are safe don't have any other consequences Doctor Who should be getting the flu vaccine this year everybody over the age of six months should be getting the flu vaccine unless they have an energy to a component of the vaccine which is actually very very infrequent even egg allergies are no longer considered a contraindication to the banks. So really everybody the other question that comes up a lot is timing you need to get the flu vaccine. At least two weeks prior to the onset of flu activity in your region and that can vary from place to place in the midwest. Typically if you doesn't start till about the last week in December and then it can go through the end of March. So the vaccine takes about two weeks to induce an immune response. So you should get it two weeks before so by the first week of December or so. Is there ever a time that's too early to get the flu vaccine. So for most people know you can get it as soon the flu vaccine becomes available for immunosuppressive patients and the elderly sometimes the effect of the vaccine can Wayne in six months or so. So if you get it in August, you may not be protected. In fact, that's flu is still circulating. So there's a little bit of concerned about that. I would urge people to get it when it's available. Thank you Doctor, you know, there's a lot of information out there about the flu vaccine. And misinformation. What do you want to tell folks who hear conflicting information about flu vaccine safety? There are reports in the media about bad things happening after all that scenes and the flu isn't an exception to that. We give a thousands and thousands of doses of vaccine at our medical facility and have not encountered problems. There is a very very small chance that you can have when your logic problem called Guillain-Barre after the flu vaccine this was, you know, a problem with the 1976 flu vaccine and the flu vaccines always gotten a bad drafts. And then after that the incidence of the syndrome has been very low one in every a couple of million doses. The association is weak. And other than that there are no major side effects from the flu vaccine if there's anything else that you'd think like to tell us about the flu please dead. The flu virus is a virus that is constantly evolving. It's it goes through what are called mutations all the time. So between one year and the next the Palm Terrace undergoes changes and so that's why we need to give you a new vaccine every year every year. The flu vaccine has four different strains that are collected from all over the world. And we picked the ones we think are most likely to cause infection. Wonderful. That's great information. I want to thank you doctor sampathkumar from taking time from your visit to share your expertise. Thanks so much. Thanks to me. Oh Clinic infectious diseases specialist. Dr. Sampath Kumar for joining us today to discuss vaccines and vaccine safety the same Clinic Q&A. I'm Deb Bowser. Thanks for joining us Mayo Clinic Q&A is a.

"Nobody. Enjoys break. How long does the flu vaccine last once we receive it? There's a lot of research still happening in that area. It's kind of an issue of what do we mean by last another words by summertime influential? It has pretty much faded away. So people aren't exposed to it. The only thing we could do would be measure antibody levels not whether they actually got the disease, but what we can say is that in your when you're older as you get over age 65, if you have a variety of medical conditions that decrease your immunity, your antibody doesn't start off his high after the flu vaccine. So it very likely Wings down faster. And that's why this recommendation of you know, get these done in the September October dead. Even into November plus time frame and that will carry you through when the peaks of influenza are in the u.s. I had a discussion this weekend with my husband who is also a physician about whether we should be wearing masks are Goggles or face shields in addition to wearing a mask. I had we had all she understood that you the droplets are what we're trying to prevent giving and receiving by wearing a mask, but there's evidence about I transmission as well as that true. And what would your recommendations be in that regard? You know, you're always right on top of it. As a matter of fact just Friday or this weekend CDC released some information agreeing with what many of us have been saying from the beginning that this virus can be transmitted not only by large droplets, but by the aerosol and smaller place Route. So in fact last week there was an article now it's an association but showing that people who regularly wore eyeglasses actually had a decrease risk in association with a mask of acquiring covet. Well, we know this on the medical side now we're in higher risk situations, but we wear a mask off face shield or eye goggles for that. Very reason. Well, the most important thing is a mask no question about it and sanitization masks and physical distancing is absolutely the best thing to do. Now. What if you're going to go into an airplane a store or a crowded area, I think wearing the face shield is another layer of protection and we notice that people are getting that message and starting to do that. I think that's even a little more foreign or odd for people to do so, they're not dead. Used to it. But if you said to me, what's the best protection I would say a mask and a face shield. So I hear you primarily saying that we'd be wearing the face shield and they or the Palm Coast to alleviate some of our risk of receiving covid-19 or behind infected with it. What about is it possible for a covid-19 patient to touch their life and then to transmit it from there I to someone else similar to coughing into your hand and then you know shaking somebody's hand you can can certainly spread virus that long. So what we're trying to do with with eye glasses or goggles or a face shield is prevent those droplets from hitting RI our nose or mouth and not getting infected. So what is the latest that we know about reinfection with covid-19 are people getting it a second time is up and proven yet. What we have are a home. Fuller to of documented cases and I think we have to take that as sort of the tip of the iceberg. Let me explain what I mean and in the very first and I thought very well documented case of this young man in in Hong Kong. He had symptoms got tested by PCR proven to have Maddick what we don't know is well what happens not a few months but a year from now, will they be equally susceptible and this is an area of great research. We know off with SARS Covey one. We know with seasonal coronavirus is in particular that immunity can last as short as Eighty Days and as long as as multiple years so one important ramification of that is might that be true with vaccines. We don't know another important ramification is when people let's say get tested and their antibody positive or they had the PCR swab and they knew that they were positive. They should not presume that I'm home free. I can do anything that I want to they absolutely are at risk of getting reinfected and even if they don't have symptoms of potentially birth And submitting that to somebody else even though they're not sick. So this is this an active area of inquiry it has as I say huge ramifications wage for how we think about this pandemic how we treat it how we evaluate our vaccines and how we get across to people this message. There is no such thing as an immunity passport. Is it possible that the vaccine that we will be looking at 4 covid-19 will be one that will need to be repeated sort of like we do with the flu vaccine. My guess is the answer to that will turn out to be yes or one very good reason and one potential reason the good reason is we already know even with symptomatic infection where you see the whole virus and produce an immune response to it that people are getting reinfected. The other potential reason is that this is an RNA virus and yep. A virus has inherently changed they mutate they have subtle changes. We've seen that with some of these persons who have gotten reinfected. I suspect that will be true of the vaccine and that will have to give periodic booster doses. How often no one knows because not enough time has.

By December, 31st or you can't go to school. What do you think about requiring that sort of thing? I know Europe, even requiring the usual childhood vaccines before you have to go to school. No. Flu vaccine. You can't if you haven't had a flu vaccine that year. You cannot go to school. You have specific tio flu? Yes. Think that requiring the flu vaccine? Yeah, well, in my humble opinion, anybody six months or older who's not allergic to it should have should have the flu vaccine so But you're also a civil libertarian, But and then the question is, should they not be allowed? You're asking a step further. If they don't want it, should they not be allowed to go to school. So you know this is this is a tough one for civil civil libertarian because The way these vaccines work. They work by herd immunity. And if you don't have enough people vaccinated then it puts everybody at risk. So you know how you said a few weeks ago about you putting a mask on because you think it's a polite thing to do? Yep, Distancing all that. I think it's polite meant anything. Getting getting a vaccine also is a polite thing to do is help. You're helping not only yourself, but everybody else, So that's the logic going to use with me this year. To try to get me Tio Luca. It's it's not. It's a logic I would use any year because because and with any and with any vaccine because many of them work also by herd immunity, and you need to get enough people immunized and especially the flu vaccine does.

And don't say very true, very true, But they do They do projections and so right now they're saying that it's going to be a high, you know, high flu season. But I want to see that data. I want to see where they proving that. Yes, love. It is a problem and people who get Kobe To get both. It's going to be worse. But right in there also what they're concerned about availability of hospital beds as I understand it. That's one of the driving factors. So let me ask you is rule quickly if I could, either. So if you're If your daughter You know, received flu shots when she was entering the 3rd 4th 5th grade. Now it's mandatory. Why would you look at it differently? I can understand philosophically. Why you look at it differently, But, um, you know, you could easily rationalize it in your mind to say, Well, look, we happen to believe in flu shots, whether they mandatory and not you not buying that. So both my daughter and I actually have had adverse reactions to vaccines. We didn't get it last year, and I will think we actually did get the flu. We didn't go to the hospital you're able to easily treat at home. But it's again a personal choice. And I think you have every right to that. Absolutely, and by the way, there are religious and medical exemptions. I think they'll be very Limited on the on the religious exemptions. I mean, you won't be able to celebrate, you know, with the Church of what's happening now, and one of the tenants of our new religion is no flu shots. I think you proved that it's for real. And I think you guys I really appreciate you joining us tonight. You made a great point. I hope people will pick up and react to them, okay? Thanks it thanks that it could not.

"The flu vaccine is a really valuable vaccine, but it doesn't prevent you from getting the flu 100% of the time. It's it's or depends on the season and if the first vaccines for Corona virus or similar. That would still be a huge public health. You know, accomplishment, but it wouldn't mean that no one got sick anymore. We'd still need treatments to save The lives of people we love from the worst ravages of this dizzy is so some epidemiologists said. You know, we're not going to land in Oz the day that the vaccine his is shown effective, it's going to be a process. So how do we get people to get a vaccine in this moment in time? Who can be the credible messenger here? No, The president recently said that you know, he expects a vaccine by November 3rd just after the election or just before the election, so that kind of rhetoric can sort of undermine the integrity of the process. People may think that it's being rightly or wrongly being rushed. And that's what scientists are working really hard to try to counter to basically build up this credibility that even though they're working at a record pace at astonishing speed, they are still checking all the boxes. They have the data to back it up that they are validating all the results and that what they're distributing is safe and beneficial. But that requires a lot of, you know transparency that requires a lot of public education, and that's kind of been a bit of a hurdle right now because one you have things moving so quickly that they're not necessarily being so forthright with the information that they have. We've seen some of these vaccine manufacturers, for instance, announced some of their latest fighting's through press releases. Rather than through, you know, peer reviewed papers or even through preliminary, non peer reviewed papers. And so it's been harder to scrutinize those results. And so that's something that could potentially undermining and the way you build that credibility is, of course, through transparency and through having good, solid public messaging that through nonpartisan means potentially type to illustrate the benefits of getting this vaccine and how it could help us return to normal. It is a process and this public acceptance aspect of it is not something that should be underplay. This is something that's really important to start tackling right now. Well, Caroline and who? Mayer? Thank you so much for taking this time And speaking with.

"Yeah I'm calling because specifically in reference to the flu vaccine this I took my daughter and for her wellness physical it was a very thorough says the call because you now she's thirteen game right turn fourteen in January I did not agree with the flu vaccine and the reason why I'm calling is because the pediatrician actually explain in may as far as it could lead to death so she won and tell you know kind of the extreme portion of me refusing the vaccination got it and that yesterday there were as it should my both my kids are extremely healthy they'd take a multivitamin since they were little people they have a very healthy diet they don't drink sodas hi it's never been in our day is said there man system is much higher much stronger than the average out there which is an excellent situation for you Iraq and we don't there are a bunch facet no we eat at home and that's a have the fourteen year old at home so let me let me give you some data and and not only you and your as far as I'm concerned my opinion you're making the right choices I'm I broke it down early and I said the overall effectiveness rate of the the flu vaccine is twelve percent so here's a here's what is twenty nine percent actually for all ages and for your daughter's age our children between nine and seventeen years of age that full vaccinate full vaccine effectiveness rate is six percent and you know you get in adults eighteen to forty nine is twenty five percent twelve percent for those over fifty twelve percent for those over six sixty nine and then it drops just under fifty percent for children ages six months to eight years so the effectiveness and then looking at the consequences which your doctor will you know was right and yeah I I pledge a doctor for giving you that data that's absolutely impressive that your physician would go through to that end and give you all that information so it's important to realize that when you get vaccinated you know few or no symptoms of infection and you can still shed and transmit the influenza to others that's a fact in the O. C. website after website that says because the inoculation the vaccine that goes into the dead vaccine a cab stimulate anything else the nasal vaccine is an attenuated vaccine that means is not dead and any time you sneeze and so forth you can pass that on so in reality after vaccination you may actually become contagious and is silent carrier of the disease so a person with the the flu of fully expresses says symptoms of fever and body aches and cough another size respiratory illness would you know generally would that be at home you know they're they're not going out right unless you know they would they are initially however I vaccinated individual who is silently contagious and this is coming I'm reading from a from a website right now right they go to war click on the stores they go to public areas and you know they're on a weird that they're actually spreading you know the the flu and this goes on for other other types of vaccinations as well so there's there's article after article after article and again I will give you some data before the program's over but yeah let's roll it back although back to two thousand fourteen there's a paper that also revealed how priming your immune system with an influenza vaccine can make you more susceptible and I'm I'm quoting again to infection from other viral and other bacterial pathogens it's a phenomena they they actually give a a a term to and it's known as header loggers immunity so now you become much more susceptible to other things Sir is craziness that they don't give that out it's everybody's choice to do certain things based on what they think is right for themselves and for the family but you need to do it based on what the actual facts are not propaganda and again again I am so delighted that your doctor took the opportunity to really tell you the truth about what's going on out there you know it we know that you know a cell based flu vaccine and that's what we call them by the way is no better the and they're trying to substitute this is a well it's not exactly because a lot of people are allergic to eggs and and so forth and again they touted as the new and improved flu shot the you know the the flu so of axes with it because his cell based rather neck base vaccine and you know the the researchers of from the US food and drug administration found a protected just twenty six point five percent of those over the age of of US sixty five this still three quarters of the population that's not protected so what have they done it's like let's get our mail system stronger so we don't have but that it goes beyond that is get the data and really look at it and let's not play Russian roulette I'm not telling anybody not to get the vaccines I'm saying look at what it actually is and how it presents itself and make sure that you have all the information all the statistics and get that done it's there it's it's such a crazy situation following warm Courtin this is incredibly important Liz I really appreciate your phone calls thank you so very much and I think you know tell your doctor thank you for may I'm impressed that that doesn't happen too often I am very impressed at your doctor would actually give you all the information you know that is really needed to be together but we know we talked about miscarriages with that with that people but you know the the the financing to be so contradictory and they are the researchers of have completed second study and this time they found no link between the flu vaccination and you have a miscarriage well again remember what I said who publish the article what do they have to gain by it and who wrote the check so we'll go let's go to a court is gonna they've Edward doctor Edward Bhoja and he's ahead of the centre for clinical epidemiology and population health and Wisconsin's Marshall field clinic in stat moves raises and for women right now who are wondering if it's safe to get a vaccine in early pregnancy we can say yeah yes and then that flies in the face of the information that I just gave you a little while ago right so you got a scroll down and find out why who funded the study number one when you find out who funded the study there might be a clue there that would suggest that somebody has something to gain because of that so you know when this information is presented I'd like to point out you know the point out the obvious in two thousand seventeen study came out detractors were quick to point out that you can't draw conclusions based on a single study act you know they're claiming to have unequivocal proven safety big one study based on a single study really so let me tell you in my opinion my opinion the issue is still so wide open and you have to look at all the facts look at the data look at the percentages and then make sure that you choose wisely based on the information we are not stupid people although Fifth Avenue marketing would like to make us look stupid and sometimes we become weapons we just kind of follow the crowd and do what we're told to do and you know it's it's an unfortunate situation it's not okay just to do it because somebody told us it's important today and there you know in the light of that we have computers and we have all kinds of online information that's accessible to us in multiple areas to just take one little snippet of something and believe it an owner is craziness in my opinion find out both sides weigh the risks in every type of vaccination across the board look at the inserts in in the flu vaccine and you're gonna find that there's been thousands and thousands of vaccine injury filings this is not hyperbole this is truth this is real stuff there's a website if you go into is called and many of you now have an is mark call dot com and I've had the pleasure of knowing and and respecting Germer Cola it's his website and you can look of vaccines and his data is very on spot he's got twenty three writers that researches information for him and it's you really cavs say it's wrong because the information is there and and study after study after study after study there's a a great video that he's posted on one of his wives and if you if you go go and and say vaccines I will let you watch that because after you get done margin at the going to be more than just a little cranky even wonder why have I been duped for so very long you.

"The one main thing also flu vaccine, which I'm sure we'll get to good tips there. Let's let's address the right now if somebody's traveling internationally, though, they come down with the flu since there are different strands of the flu virus out there. I'd like to know are the antivirals used here in the US. So they going to be helpful. Or if you need something, and you are overseas are they readily available in most countries around the world. So that's a great question. Actually, I hope I can actually come. If those are readily available in most countries, I think that most developing and developed countries do have access to the anti flu medications, but we do in the United States, and we recommend that when people are abroad, and when they get sick that they use seek healthcare for two reasons. One would be to get treatment and open to make sure that they're not continuously exposing themselves to others and making other also, okay, great tips, Christina. I have two quick questions for you before we run out of time once a really probably a quick cancer. And then the second one will more I'd like you to elaborate, a little more is the partial government shutdown having any impact on your operations. And do you have any other last bits of travel advice for people during flu season like the flu shot? Yes. Exactly. Actually, I'm the right now is not under any government shutdown. We are actually part of the health and human services branch of the government, which is fully funded through next fiscal year. That is not affecting the operations the trial.

I'm trying to remember maybe it was EBay, and there was like a couple of places that you could go where there'd be like, a bitcoin ATM or something places would have the little sign in the window. We accept bitcoin. But that was very like trendy art care. I'll give you two hits. All right hit and a half. Maybe. Yeah. I'll take it. Make your predictions for two right? Okay. I wrote down four lucky I did. Because my number one was a pharmaceutical company will begin production of universal flu vaccine to be administered in the twenty nineteen twenty twenty season. So the idea. Here we we can share the okay? I mean, the idea here was that we're already in our in diem this already actually I think in face to trials. So the question is are they going to start producing in mass quantities. So that by the twenty nine hundred twenty twenty flu season, we can actually start injecting. Although that's pretty soon. I might even say that's twenty twenty twenty one. Yeah. But they usually start with a small test population. But that's what they're doing already. That's happening. Yeah. Clinical trials are having. Now, I interviewed a woman from Israel on talk. Nerdy. All about her universal flu vaccine, big pharmaceutical company, and Israel and they're far along there in faced trials, so yeah, it's pretty cool. Okay. So maybe I'll keep it. But I do have three more. So let's see. All right, American astronauts will stop using the Russian Soyuz capsule to travel to the s and instead they will rely on SpaceX or Boeing's newest capsules that I haven't this year, a major data breach of an influential government agency will threaten public trust recorded and the other one that I came up with was the first brain computer interface for individuals with amputated limbs will become commercially available. What do you guys think is there one that's already commercially available? I don't think so there's still in our in D for amputate. I mean, there's like headbands and stuff, but nothing that's like all the out there. It'd It'd be be able able to. to judge that I think anything any breakthrough there happens. All right. So there you go. All right. Yeah. I'll give them the flu vaccine on Blyleven. Thanks. You know, no predictions for this year. What what's your predictions for next year? Right. Because I wasn't in the show last year. Yeah. But I did do some predictions on my own. I got them. All right. But. Nice james. Came up with five I said that apple is going to come out with a new device that we don't need. That's a new iphone take take a win. Right. I say that five G networks will start to be deployed, and no one will really know. The first half of. That's right. The second half. What I mean by that is. They're they're legitimately rolling out five G network. And by the by the time devices are legitimately rolled out. I don't think that that both of those are going to converge in two thousand nineteen like the network will be available, but will also be using four G, right? I will predict a bed cyber attack is going to happen. Hey, we're together on that one is opposed to a good, but I'm gonna expand mine a little bit and say that I think that it'd be a cyber attack that actually causes a death. Ooh, interesting. That's interesting. We're going to see a major breakthrough in artificial intelligence and machine learning in two thousand nineteen you pretty a couple years ago. I heard that check on her about was a hopeful. Like, yeah, I want that too. But I don't know now. That's that's that's that's how shackle that means way. Did you hear me talk tonight?
