News for the upcoming Flu Season 2016:

  • The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends an annual flu shot for everyone 6 months and older.
  • A high dose flu shot is recommended for anyone over age 65.
  • On June 22, 2016 the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices voted that the nasal flu shot should not be used during the 2016-2017 flu season.
  • The composition of flu vaccines for the US is reviewed annually and updated to match the circulating flu viruses. Albany County Public Health offers a quadrivalent flu shot which means it offers protection from the four viruses that are circulating at this time.
  • A flu shot cannot cause flu illness.  Some people report having mild reactions to flu vaccination. The most common reaction to the flu shot in adults has been soreness, redness, or swelling at the spot where shot was given.

Mosquito Bite prevention

When using repellent with DEET, follow these recommendations: • Read and follow all directions and precautions on the product label. • Store DEET out of reach of children. • To apply to face, first spray product onto hands, then rub onto face.. • Use only when outdoors and wash skin with soap and water after coming indoors. • Higher concentrations of DEET may have a longer repellent effect, however, concentrations over 50% provide no added protection. • Use just enough repellent to cover exposed skin and/or clothing. Avoid over-application of the product. • DEET may be used on adults, children, and infants older than 2 months of age. Protect infants from mosquito bites by using a carrier draped with mosquito netting with an elastic edge for a tight fit. Be safe with DEET : • Do not allow children under 10 years of age to apply repellent themselves. • Do not apply to young children’s hands or around eyes and mouth. • Do not breathe in, swallow, or get into the eyes (DEET is toxic if swallowed.) • Do not put repellent on wounds or broken skin
