Influenza (flu) season is approaching. Influenza begins to spread from early winter when the temperature drops and the diurnal difference grows, and it flows through the spring until the following spring. Patients tend to increase each year.
To be vaccinated with the flu vaccine, you must complete the vaccination before the fall. "If you take the flu vaccine, it will be effective after two weeks and will last about 6 months, so it's best to end the vaccination by the end of November, considering the time of the flu season (December)." "Children between the ages of 10 and 12 have the lowest vaccination rates," he said. "Children who are active must be vaccinated with flu shots."
Immunity to the flu? There are still many people who are confused with & # 39; relief = cold flu & # 39; because it is safe. Flu and cold are definitely another disease. Colds are caused by cold viruses such as Adeno, Corona and Reno, but the flu is caused by the flu virus. Colds start with coughing, nasal congestion, runny nose and low fever, and symptoms worsen as the flu starts with sudden high fever and causes severe headaches, chills, muscle aches and joint pains. If you are seriously ill, you will lose your life because of complications.
Flu is particularly common in the seasons, but influenza is prevalent at certain times from fall to spring every year and is highly contagious. The best prevention is vaccination. The influenza vaccine is produced every year by the World Health Organization (WHO), a virus company.
The influenza vaccine has three vaccines (type A and type 1) and four types of vaccine (two types A and two types B) to block the three viruses. It is divided into & quot; milk milk vaccine & quot; which is produced using eggs according to the method of manufacture and & # 39; cell culture vaccine & # 39; which uses animal cells. 19 influenza vaccines and 2 cell culture vaccines are distributed each year. If the egg, chicken or chicken components are hypersensitive, you should not inoculate the milk bottle. You should talk to your doctor and inoculate another type of vaccine (cell culture).
People who already have the flu may think they do not need to be vaccinated because they are immunized. Influenza viruses come in many different types and are likely to be infected with other types of viruses even after they have recovered from a virus infection. So even if you already have the flu, you should get vaccinated.
Hig Hygienic care such as washing hands, cough etiquette = vaccination does not completely block the flu, but can reduce symptoms, hospitalization rate and risk of death. Especially if immunity is weak or there is a normal illness, it can lead to death due to complications of the flu, so the elderly, infants and pregnant women should get vaccinated.
If you are older than 65 months, you should be vaccinated. Most of the deaths due to the actual flu are over 65 years. Pregnant women may be reluctant to vaccinate and pregnant women should also be vaccinated. Regardless of the number of weeks of pregnancy, you must have an inactivated vaccine that prevents virus activation. However, if you have an allergic reaction after vaccination with a previous vaccine or if you have a severe acute illness, you should consult your doctor to see if your symptoms have improved and to decide whether to get a vaccine.
Regular personal hygiene is also very important. The virus can be transferred directly to the drop in the air, but can be spread by hand or by a common tool. In particular, influenza viruses can remain active for more than 12 hours in dry conditions, so wash your hands often and be careful not to touch your mouth or nose.
It is also highly contagious that it is important to wear a mask or keep the cough etiquette if you are a patient with the flu. When you cough or sneeze, you should cover your mouth with handkerchiefs, scarves and leash, not with your hands. If your immune system is weak, it is a good idea to avoid visiting places where there are many people during the flu epidemics.
Lee Ji-yong, director of infectious diseases at Yangpyeong Hospital, said: "If you get out of the flu, you can avoid complications like pneumonia and vaccination.If you have any symptoms,
♠ Pneumonia A Herpes zoster vaccine is also good for coping = Older people are at risk of pneumonia as well as influenza, so it is best to get pneumonia vaccine. There are two types of vaccine to prevent pneumonia: protein conjugate vaccine (13) and polysaccharide vaccine (23) The adult pneumococcal vaccine is a polysaccharide vaccine. If you are 65 years of age or older and have no other disease, you can prevent from 50% to 80% of serious complications of pneumonia, such as sepsis and meningitis, with only one dose. Like the flu, people over 65 receive free vaccination.
It is also necessary to vaccinate against the tiles. The zone is a disease in which the varicella virus that has remained in the body after having chicken pox at an early age is reactivated as the immune system decreases with age. Severe neuropathic pain is accompanied, and in some patients post-herpetic neuralgia may occur, which continues pain even after treatment. Especially at age 50 or older, post-herpetic neuralgia also increases with age. If you do not have a chronic disease, it is best to inoculate after age 60.
