How can I encourage them to be vaccinated, and when is the best time for them to do so? For many people, particularly the elderly, the end of autumn can mean the beginning of worries about the flu season. Anyone over the age of 65 is considered to be at high risk for flu, as are people with chronic disease-especially of the heart and lungs--and children on long-term aspirin therapy. Although influenza usually does not begin its attack until the latter part of De- cember, candidates for the flu vaccine should receive it by the end of November, or sooner. Help your parents to understand that the flu vaccine, which is 70 to 90 percent effec- tive in preventing flu, is far preferable to suf- fering from the flu itself. Reassure them that side effects from the vaccine are unlikely; a few people experience soreness or redness on the arm, while a very small minority have a slight fever for a day or two. Also reassure your parents that the needles used for the flu vaccine are scrupulously sterilized and used only once-there is no risk whatsoever of contracting AIDS. It's important for people in high-risk cate- gories to be vaccinated early because the body needs four W six weeks to respond to the vaccine by building up antibodies to the flu viruses. Also, it is better for people to he vaccinated before they fall prey to winter colds or other ailments, because flu viruses take a stronger 'hold in someone who is weakened by age or another illness. People in high-risk categories not only tend to get the more easily i others, they generally become sieker from flu, remain sick longer, and may even die as a result of the illness. For this reason, many hospitals and health centers offer the vaccine without charge to high-risk groups. Hospital employ- ees also often are encouraged to be vacci- nated because of their frequent contact with flu viruses. While colds are caused by 150 kinds of viruses, flu is caused by only a few-broadly grouped under "A" and "B" and named for their respective homelands. "IVds year, Tai- wan flu and L ingrad flu are two of the types mat are expected to reach American shores. Airborne through coughs, sneezes, laughter, and conversation, the viruses spread best indoors, where large numbers of easily because the sufferer is contagious even before the symptoms set in. Flu begins more abruptly than a cold, usually with a high fever (up to 103 degrees in adults, even higher in children), a dry cough, and a headache.Other symptoms may include congestion, a sore throat, muscle aches and pains, and nausea. Symptoms in healthy young people generally last a week or two and often require bed rest of at least several days. Even though everyone would prefer to be spared the pain, discomfort, and inconven- ience of flu, mass immunization is not pos- sible because the vaccine is available only in limited amounts. The vaccine consists of large quantities of flu viruses that have been grown in eggs, killed, and purified; these vi- ruses stimulate the body to produce antibod- ies against similar live viruses. (People who are allergic to eggs should not receive the traditional vaccine.) Unlike other types of vaccinations, flu shots must be repeated an- nually because each year the vaccine is mixed differently to combat the specific vi- ruses expected to attack. People in high-risk groups who are aller- gic to eggs may be vaccinated in smaller doses or given a prescription for amanta- dine, a flu antidote that must be taken daily during flu season. People who receive the vaccination well into the flu season may be given amantadine until the vaccine becomes effective. Amantadine works only if it is being taken at the time of exposure, and it protects against type A viruses only.
