The 5 flu jab myths you should not believe

  The 5 flu jab myths you should not believe We bust the myths and share the facts about the flu vaccine.The flu jab is available every year on the NHS to help protect adults and children who are at risk. Anyone who wants to lower their risk of getting the flu should get a flu vaccination. But despite the obvious benefits of the flu jab, vaccinations still come with a number of misconceptions.

Now doctors are asking the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to warn the public of the disturbing side effects of this vaccine. Both companies acknowledged that their vaccines could induce side effects that are similar to symptoms associated with mild Covid - 19 , such as muscle pain

U.S. doctors are worried that their patients won't return to get a second dose of coronavirus vaccine if the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) doesn't give them a clear, upfront warning that none of the shots will be a 'walk in the park.'

'As a practicing physician, I have got to be sure my patients will come back for the second dose,' said Dr Sandra Fryhofer of Emory University during a Monday meeting with officials, attended by CNBC.

'We really have got to make patients aware that this is not going to be a walk in the park.'

Participants in trials for vaccines made by Pfizer, AstraZeneca and Moderna have described the side effects of the shots as similar to the symptoms of COVID-19 itself.

When should we start testing COVID-19 vaccines in kids?

  When should we start testing COVID-19 vaccines in kids? A vaccine cannot be approved for use in kids until vaccine trials with young participants are complete. Bacteria and viruses that are deadly to one type of creature can evolve quickly to infect another. While the new coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 (which causes COVID-19) is the latest example, a host of infectious and deadly diseases have hopped from animals to humans and even from humans to animals.

Globally, about 3.4% of reported COVID - 19 cases have died. Doctors Fauci and Birx next pushed ridiculous and highly exaggerated mortality rates related to the coronavirus: ** Dr . Tony Fauci and Dr . Deborah Birx used the Imperial College Model to persuade President Trump to lock down the ENTIRE

The coronavirus disease 2019 ( COVID - 19 ) pandemic has changed how health care is delivered in the United States and has affected the operations of healthcare facilities. Effects may include increases in patients seeking care for respiratory illness that could be COVID - 19 , deferring and delaying

On the other hand, convincing Americans - especially some who are high-risk, including black and Latinx people in the U.S. - that COVID-19 vaccines are safe to take has been a challenge to begin with.

Ultimately, it will be up to states to decide how to distribute vaccines to their populations, and who will get them first, HHS Secretary Alex Azar announced Tuesday - and that will include how to talk to their residents about vaccination.

CDC and state officials as well as individual doctors will have to walk a thin line between telling hundreds of millions of Americans what to expect from a coronavirus vaccine and avoiding scaring them off from getting the shots.

Overall, trials for all three shots deemed them safe and 'tolerable,' meaning the risks of their side effects were clearly outweighed by the shots' benefits.

CDC says coronavirus DOES spread through the air

  CDC says coronavirus DOES spread through the air It comes two weeks after CDC officials said their previous warning about airborne transmission was 'in error,' making Monday's update the third time in a month the agency has changed its advice.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) now admits that coronavirus does spread through airborne transmission, according to updated guidance on the agency's website.

The claim: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has confirmed a 0.2% death rate for COVID - 19 . Commentary on the severity and death toll " The CDC just confirmed a .2% death rate for COVID - 19 ," says a May 25 post by Facebook user Bill Faudel, which lists many effects of the virus

Information for people with liver disease who may be at higher risk for severe illness from COVID - 19 . Some patients hospitalized for COVID - 19 have had increased levels of liver enzymes — like alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) — that indicate their livers

But 'tolerable' does not mean that the shots have no effects.

Like most vaccines, the three COVID-19 jabs come with some soreness and aches at the injection sites and throughout the body.

According to participants in each trial, however, the coronavirus vaccines pack more of a punch than most.

Coronavirus vaccines might leave us laid up for a day with headaches, fevers, sore muscles, shivering chills and no energy, participants in trials for Moderna's and Pfizer's shots told CNBC.

But the side effects will be worth it, and fade after a day, they added.

Vaccines of all kinds commonly come with side effects - some more unpleasant than others.

Scientists discover new organ in the throat

  Scientists discover new organ in the throat A newly discovered set of salivary glands is nestled behind the nose.This nasopharynx region — behind the nose — was not thought to host anything but microscopic, diffuse, salivary glands; but the newly discovered set are about 1.5 inches (3.9 centimeters) in length on average. Because of their location over a piece of cartilage called the torus tubarius, the discoverers of these new glands have dubbed them the tubarial salivary glands. The glands probably lubricate and moisten the upper throat behind the nose and mouth, the researchers wrote online Sept. 23 in the journal Radiotherapy and Oncology.

COVID - 19 is a new disease. Currently there are limited data and information about the impact of many underlying medical conditions and whether they indicate that you are leaving the CDC website. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ( CDC ) cannot attest to the accuracy of a non-federal

This week CDC received forecasts of COVID - 19 deaths over the next 4 weeks from 36 modeling groups that were included in the ensemble forecast. Of the 36 groups, 33 provided forecasts for both new and total deaths, two groups forecasted total deaths only, and one forecasted new death only.

He felt a bit less than 100 percent for a few days after the first dose but eight hours after his second dose on September 15, the healthy computational biologist was too weak to leave bed, running a high fever and writhing with pain and shivers.

It even got harder for Hutchinson to breathe. The experimental COVID-19 vaccine left him feeling like he'd contracted the virus it was meant to protect him against.

He wasn't the only one. CNBC spoke to two other participants in the Moderna trial and two enrolled in Pfizer's vaccine trial, all of whom reported intense - but thankfully brief - side effects.

In addition to their side effects, the vaccine testers share the opinion that most people should still get a COVID-19 vaccine, once one has been approved.

Their advice to the vaccine makers echoed that of the doctors on the Monday call: warn people what they are in for after getting their shots.

Vaccines work by tricking the body into thinking it's been infected with the pathogens the shot is designed to protect against.

Will US COVID-19 mortality catch up to surging cases?

  Will US COVID-19 mortality catch up to surging cases? Experts explained that the number of excess deaths will likely rise again this winter, but will probably not reach levels seen this spring as older people take greater care to stay safe and outbreaks trend rural.In fact, new data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggest that excess fatalities in the US have fallen substantially since the first peak of the pandemic in the spring.

By doing so, the shot trains the immune system what to look for, so that it's primed and ready to fight off the real danger when we encounter it.

But some of the symptoms we experience when we catch a virus, like a cold, or the flu or coronavirus itself are due to that immune response.

This crossover between what it feels like to have a virus and to get a shot that ramps up your immune response as if you have a virus has caused confusion, including the incorrect belief of many who are vaccine hesitant that vaccines, like those against measles or the flu actually 'give' the recipient the respective viruses.

Still others who are vaccine hesitant realize that what they experience after a shot is a reaction, but would rather take the risk of possibly contracting a virus than sign up to knowingly sign up for a known possible 'adverse event.'

Importantly, not all COVID-19 recipients experience these effects.

Nevertheless, how clinicians giving vaccines prepare the recipients to get their shots, which come in two doses, will be crucial, the experts on Monday's call said.

Patsy Stinchfield, a nurse practitioner at Children's Minnesota made the point that the language clinicians use to talk about the shots could make a difference.

Which Covid-19 vaccine is better and how soon will we get it?

  Which Covid-19 vaccine is better and how soon will we get it? As a third potential vaccine, Oxford-AstraZeneca, is announced, Daily Mail asks which of the coronavirus vaccine is best.Such strong results from the Oxford-AstraZeneca team gives Britain – and the world – real hope of an end to the pandemic early next year.

She suggested explaining potential aches, pains, fevers and chills as a 'response' to the vaccine, rather than an 'adverse reaction,' according to CNBC.

'These are immune responses, and so if you feel something after vaccination, you should expect to feel that.

'When you do, it's normal to have some arm soreness or fatigue, some body aches and maybe even a fever. It sounds like in some of these trials, maybe even having to stay home from work.'

That was the case for one North Carolina woman who took part in Moderna's trial.

'The first dose is no big deal. And then the second dose will definitely put you down for the day for sure...You will need to take a day off after the second dose,' the woman in her 50s told CNBC this summer.

'If this proves to work, people are going to have to toughen up,' another Moderna trial participant said.

Participants in Pfizer's trial in Australia also claimed they suffered migraines and fevers.

Jack Sommers, a 35-year-old journalist who took part in Oxford's trial in the UK described having a low-grade fever and an achy arm after vaccination, but told Daily Mail Online he was very happy to have participated and felt like a member of a winning team after hearing that the shot he'd helped test worked.

Chris Whitty reassures vaccines should still work against new strain .
Government sources said the Oxford vaccine is likely to be approved by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) by the end of this month.Providing positive news on a grim day in the fight against coronavirus, Professor Chris Whitty said there were no indications that vaccines developed so far will be ineffective against the new strain. It means protecting the country from Covid-19 in a matter of months with widespread vaccination should still be possible.
