Greenville, South Carolina (WSPA) – Health professionals at the Bonnsecourt St. Francis Hospital system in Greenville talk about the importance of vaccination now that the 2021 flu season has arrived.
Brandi Giles NP, manager of COVID testing at vaccine clinics and hospitals, said it would take weeks to vaccinate against the flu to boost immunity against the flu. She said the shot wouldn’t cause the flu, but at some point if she was infected with the virus, she could confirm that the symptoms weren’t too serious.
Giles said vaccination against influenza with the COVID vaccine is safe and effective and can be done in most medical practices. She said that receiving COVID and the flu at the same time can make someone very ill, which is why vaccination this year is even more important.
Giles said that not only people with weakened immunity, but also weakened immunity, the entire population needs to attack us.
She said that if you get the flu and your immune system becomes less responsive, you may be more susceptible to other illnesses and viruses.
According to Giles, a typical influenza vaccination is tetravalent and targets influenza virus strains, including two influenza A-shares and two influenza B-shares.
The Bon Secours Francis Health System will host an influenza clinic from October 2nd to October 8th. The location and time are as follows.
