Influenza 'Flu' Vaccine

Influenza Vaccine (Inactivated or Recombinant) Influenza can make some people much sicker than others. These people include young children, adults 65 and older, pregnant women, and people with certain health conditions – such as heart, lung or kidney disease, nervous system disorders, or a weakened immune system. Flu vaccination is especially important for these people, and anyone in close contact with them.

Chickenpox (also called varicella) Vaccine - Chickenpox is a common childhood disease. It is usually mild, but it can be serious, especially in young infants and adults.Chickenpox vaccine can prevent chickenpox. Most people who get chickenpox vaccine will not get chickenpox. But if someone who has been vaccinated does get chickenpox, it is usually very mild. They will have fewer blisters, are less likely to have a fever, and will recover faster.

TB Skin Test

The Mantoux tuberculin skin test (TST) is the standard method of determining whether a person is infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The TB skin test (also called the Mantoux tuberculin skin test) is performed by injecting a small amount of fluid (called tuberculin) into the skin in the lower part of the arm.

Vitamin B12 Shots

Methylcobalamin is the form of vitamin B12 best utilized in the brain and is critical for normal neurological development and function. Vitamin B12 is the most difficult vitamin to absorb. Healthy individuals absorb approximately 2% of the B12 in their diet and absorption often falls below 2% in the presence of celiac disease, advanced age, and other conditions.

Pneumonia Vaccine

Vaccination can protect older adults (and some children and younger adults) from pneumococcal disease. Pneumococcal disease is caused by bacteria that can spread from person to person through close contact. Anyone can get pneumococcal disease, but children under 2 years of age, people with certain medical conditions, adults over 65 years of age, and cigarette smokers are at the highest risk.

WHY YOU SHOULD GET A FLU SHOT

Flu Statistics: What are your odds of getting the flu? How many people get the flu each year? How much does the flu cost us? How fast does the flu vaccine work?

Here's a rundown of some important flu statistics, based on the best available CDC data.

Percentage of the U.S. population that will get the flu, on average, each year: between 5% and 20%.
The number of people who die each year from flu-related causes in the U.S.: ranges from 3,000 to 49,000.
The CDC recommends that everyone older than 6 months of age get a flu vaccine as soon as it's available.
The typical incubation period for the flu is one to four days. Adults can be contagious from the day before symptoms begin through five to 10 days after the illness starts.
During 2009-2010, a new and very different flu virus (called H1N1, or swine flu) spread worldwide, causing the first flu pandemic -- global outbreak of disease caused by a new flu virus -- in more than 40 years. It is estimated that the pandemic resulted in more than 12,000 flu-related deaths in the U.S. In contrast to seasonal flu, nearly 90% of the deaths occurred among people younger than age 65.
It takes about two weeks after vaccination for an adult to develop antibodies against the flu.

    Tuberculosis (TB) Disease: Only the Tip of the Iceberg

    • There are two types of TB conditions: TB disease and latent TB infection.
    • People with TB disease are sick from active TB germs.  They usually have symptoms and may spread TB germs to others.
    • People with latent TB infection do not feel sick, do not have symptoms, and cannot spread TB germs to others. But, if their TB germs become active, they can develop TB disease.
    • Millions of people in the U.S. have latent TB infection.  Without treatment, they are at risk for developing TB disease.

    TB Skin Tests
    Tuberculosis (TB) is a disease that is spread through the air from one person to another.

    There are two kinds of tests that are used to determine if a person has been infected with TB bacteria: the tuberculin skin test and TB blood tests. A positive TB skin test or TB blood test only tells that a person has been infected with TB bacteria. It does not tell whether the person has latent TB infection (LTBI) or has progressed to TB disease. Other tests, such as a chest x-ray and a sample of sputum, are needed to see whether the person has TB disease.

    Tuberculin skin test: The TB skin test (also called the Mantoux tuberculin skin test) is performed by injecting a small amount of fluid (called tuberculin) into the skin in the lower part of the arm.

    A person given the tuberculin skin test must return within 48 to 72 hours to have a trained health care worker look for a reaction on the arm. The health care worker will look for a raised, hard area or swelling, and if present, measure its size using a ruler. Redness by itself is not considered part of the reaction.

    The skin test result depends on the size of the raised, hard area or swelling. It also depends on the person’s risk of being infected with TB bacteria and the progression to TB disease if infected.  

    Positive skin test: This means the person’s body was infected with TB bacteria. Additional tests are needed to determine if the person has latent TB infection or TB disease. A health care worker will then provide treatment as needed.

    Negative skin test: This means the person’s body did not react to the test, and that latent TB infection or TB disease is not likely.

    Pertussis (whooping cough) can cause serious illness in infants, children and adults. The disease usually starts with cold-like symptoms and maybe a mild cough or fever. After 1 to 2 weeks, severe coughing can begin. Unlike the common cold, pertussis can become a series of coughing fits that continues for weeks.
