Flu vaccine may only be 10 percent effective, experts warn
This year, the scientists may have gotten it wrong. They're hoping to fight off a disease that kills thousands every year. If you get the flu, the vaccine can make it less severe and the more people who are vaccinated, the better off everyone is.
"Flu season is here until possibly as late as May, and we anticipate an active flu season this year", said Sherry Gregory, RN, Infectious Disease Supervisor of the North Georgia Health District, based in Dalton.
Dr. Lopez says one reason is because not everybody responds to the vaccine.
As for reports that the vaccine is only 10 percent effective this year, Tebb says it may be too early to crunch those numbers.
The Journal noted that another factor in the vaccine's ineffectiveness this year is the way it's made, using eggs to grow the strains.
"I don't want to risk getting it myself because as far as what I've seen them go through it's a pretty bad deal and I don't want to feel like that, let alone bring it home to my kids or my family", Chamberlin said.
As of now, cases of the flu in Virginia are sporadic, and there has not been a local or widespread outbreak. The Centers for Disease Control's effectiveness studies measure laboratory-confirmed flu illnesses that result in a doctor's visit or those that result in hospitalization.
Cover - Cover your cough or sneeze with your arm or a disposable tissue.
Other important habits that will help keep the disease from spreading is to wash your hands frequently and avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
