The flu is everywhere, but you might be surprised to learn there’s no ticking clock for how much you need to wear.
Here’s what to know.
Tipping the clock: The best way to avoid the flu When it comes to getting ready for flu season, your body clock has a big impact on how long you’re going to be exposed to the virus, according to a new study.
A study published this week in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, which is published by the American Journal of Public Health, looked at the flu vaccine effectiveness of older people versus younger people.
Researchers at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas found that older adults who were more likely to have received flu vaccine between January and May were more than twice as likely to develop the flu.
However, they also found that those older adults with less flu exposure were more susceptible to flu symptoms.
“This study highlights the importance of being prepared for the onset of flu, even when there is little evidence to suggest that older persons are more susceptible than younger persons,” said study author and senior investigator Dr. Robert D. Pescatello, a professor of medicine at UT Southwestern.
“However, it is also important to remember that influenza vaccine effectiveness does not predict the effectiveness of flu vaccine.”
Dr. Pascatello said the study is important because it provides more data about the effectiveness and risks of flu vaccines in older adults.
“We have this great flu vaccine that is going to protect us, but we still don’t know how long the flu will stay in the body,” he said.
So how do you know when to wear a protective suit?
“It depends on what the person needs to do,” Dr. Piscatello explained.
“A good example of this is if a person is really concerned about getting a cold or flu, it may be prudent to wear protective clothing.
For example, a hooded jacket is an ideal piece of gear to wear in colder weather.”
What you need before you go to the doctor:Before getting the flu shot, talk to your doctor about what you want to wear to help you stay healthy and avoid potentially harmful flu symptoms, Dr. J. Christopher Hulbert, the director of the Center for Flu Vaccine and Prevention at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, told CNN.
What you should know about the flu:The CDC recommends that people start taking the flu shots between 8:00 a.m. and 8:30 a.mm.
A person who is currently infected should also start taking flu vaccine by 8:45 a.am.
But that depends on the severity of the flu and the severity and severity of your symptoms, the CDC advises.
If you’re concerned about the vaccine’s effectiveness, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has some simple tips to help prevent you getting the vaccine:If you have a fever, get checked by your doctor or healthcare provider.
If you have any other symptoms, get tested for them.
You should also avoid getting infected with the flu, including having a sore throat, cough, runny nose, sore eyes or cough, if possible.
If your symptoms are severe, call your doctor right away.
If your symptoms start to improve, you may need to see a doctor for a visit.
If that’s the case, ask for a test for the vaccine.
