#FLUgitives live in every town in America; they could be hiding in your workplace, your gym, the grocery store, or even in your own home.
#FLUgitives are encouraged to come out of hiding, round up other #FLUgitives and turn themselves in to their healthcare provider to learn about the seriousness of influenza and their available vaccine options.
A new review of flu vaccination trends and policies issued by the Trust for America’s Health (TFAH) found fewer than half of Americans ages 6 months and older were vaccinated against the flu in the last two flu season (2010-11 and 2011-12). For the first time during the 2010-11 flu season, CDC recommended that all Americans ages 6 months and older receive the flu vaccine. The historically low demand for seasonal flu vaccinations has contributed to limiting the supply of vaccine manufactured each year.
I am curious, is the flu shot a vaccine or inoculation, I know they call it a vaccine which would mean they inject you with dead virus which your body still fights, an inoculation is when they inject someone with a live virus, a weakened form of it so people will generally get mild symptoms.
I am just asking because you hear people saying they are going to get their vaccinations, I never really hear people saying they are going to get their inoculations.
