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.

The Van Wert County Health Department is offering
quadrivalent vaccine, which protects against four strains of influenza.  High dose vaccine will also be offered for individuals over 65 years of age.  The "flu mist" is no longer offered as an alternative to the 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.

To be protected, you must be immunized every year. Flu viruses vary from year to year, and the flu vaccine addresses these changes.
