If you want to have the best fighting chance at the flu, it might help to get your shot when you're feeling especially jolly. Vaccination against influenza began in the 1930s with large scale availability in the United States beginning in 1945.

Among children age 6 months through 23 months, the vaccination rate was 76.3 percent, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Young children, people 65 and over and those with existing respiratory conditions are at the highest risk of contracting the flu.

The vaccines are generally very safe. Feeling exhausted or muscle pains may occur as well.

Following these two open clinics, Richland Public Health flu vaccines will be available by appointment and walk-ins through Public Health Nursing, 419-774-4700. Medical practitioners say since it takes two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop, getting a flu shot earlier provides immunity once the season is underway. Patients were questioned about their moods, physical activity, diet, and sleep patterns to find a direct link between psychological and physical behaviors and their body's response to the vaccine.

These days, flu shots are even available in space. Since there are multiple strains of the illness, it's unclear if a positive mood would have a better or worse outcome on different versions of the shot ― or, indeed, any outcome at all. Matching flu virus strains is definitely one factor that affects effectiveness but also characteristics of the person being vaccinated can affect it as well. Low-grade fever, headache and muscle aches also may occur, but are not common. "Today, I am leading by example and getting vaccinated against flu".
