The flu virus causes a respiratory illness, which is characterized by an abrupt onset of fever, muscle soreness, sore throat and nonproductive cough. It can cause severe malaise lasting several days.
 
Based on that information and the recommendations of the FDA’s Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee, the strains selected for inclusion in the 2013-2014  flu vaccines include:

Trivalent influenza vaccine is made from the following three viruses:
•an A/California/7/2009 (H1N1)pdm09-like virus;
•an A(H3N2) virus antigenically like the cell-propagated prototype virus A/Victoria/361/2011;
•a B/Massachusetts/2/2012-like virus.

The quadrivalent vaccine contains the above three viruses and a B/Brisbane/60/2008-like virus.

The Van Wert County Health Department carries trivalent, quadrivalent, and high dose vaccine.

While everyone is now recommended to receive influenza vaccine, high-risk patients: pregnant women, those with asthma, diabetes, or other chronic conditions, remain at risk for serious complications from influenza. CDC, and state and local public health agencies, will continue to reinforce efforts to emphasize the crucial importance of vaccine for these groups while simultaneously promoting annual influenza vaccination for everyone in the community.

There are two types of Flu Vaccine
The "Flu  Shot"
      This may be used for persons 6 months of age and older, including healthy people and persons with chronic medical conditions.
"Nasal-Spray" Flu Vaccine
      This is approved for healthy people aged 2-49 years of age who are not pregnant
To be protected, you must be immunized every year. Flu viruses vary from year to year, and the flu vaccine addresses these changes.
