IN health officials report first flu-related death of the season

  • A leading GP has assured older people that they will receive their flu jabs in time despite some reports of delays

"Flu vaccine is made from an activated form of influenza virus and virus component can not cause any element of disease". One of the most promising candidates for a universal flu vaccine was recently described in the journal Science - and it's based on antibodies produced by South America's camel, the llama.

Health leaders say you can get the flu anytime throughout the year, but they see an increase in cases when the temperatures begin to drop.

The Division of Public Health's surveillance for the 2018-19 flu season began September 30 and will continue through late May.

Getting your flu shot can reduce flu illnesses, doctors' visits, missed work and school due to flu, as well as prevent flu-related hospitalizations. Common cold viruses have even wilder strain variation, which is why there isn't a vaccine for it at all yet. The flu vaccine can be administered at any time during the season, which typically runs from October through May.

The flu "influenza" is an infection in the nose, throat and lungs caused by a virus. So-called broadly neutralizing antibodies don't latch onto the tip of those viral knobs; instead, they target different parts - parts that are almost identical from one viral strain to the next.The authors of the new study wondered if they could string together these broadly neutralizing antibodies into a sort of mega-antibody. This is why you may develop the flu around the time you get a vaccine because you were exposed prior to getting the vaccine and were not protected at the time you got infected.

A new survey on seven hundred parents in Florida and conducted by the Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital, showed that half of them believed the flu vaccine caused the flu, leaving researchers to understand a little more why parents are hesitant and distrust the shot.

This kind of strain coverage is simply unprecedented and what's more, these antibodies are stable and can be more easily produced than other types of antibodies. Talking to APP, General Physician, Dr Mubashir said the department concerned must introduce a proper public health policy to control the spread of seasonal diseases especially influenza.

Before we get overly excited, however, this solution first needs to be tested in human clinical trials - and this could many years to design and implement.

But, in the end, all of this effort could finally pay off. "So I think some of the predictions around what we might be seeing this year is that we might be back to an H1N1 season".
