Flu shots will arrive earlier than expected. The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention began shipment two weeks ago.
The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention began shipment of flu shots earlier than expected. Five manufacturers will supply a record number of 143 million doses to the U.S. Last winter, many were sick due to a mismatch of strains found in vaccine.
Spokesman, Kristopher Weiss, of the Ohio Department of Health, says that new strains in vaccine are not surprising.
“Vaccine does not guarantee that somebody will not get sick, but they prevent about 70 to 90 percent of infections, and those who do get sick who have been vaccinated will likely have a much less severe illness,” says Weiss.
