Autumn has arrived and the time has come for local health departments to gear up for this year’s flu season. This time, the H1N1 swine flu is not the only strain that is a major concern. Health officials say this season’s flu vaccine is formulated to take on a trio of influenza strains. They say one of them is the 2009 H1N1 as well as two new strains, including one health officials recently saw in Wisconsin. Last month in Wisconsin, health officials reported two cases of people infected with a new strain of swine flu. There were also heavy reports coming from Australia about the deadly H3N2 flu strain activity being widespread across the country. Officials say everyone over six months should get the flu shot. The elderly, the very young and the immune compromised are the ones that have potentially the greatest risk for life threatening symptoms or illness. Even though you might not fall in that category, you should still get your flu shot because you’re not only protecting yourself. You’re protecting the people around you.
