Palpitations, a cough medicine, and antibiotics are often prescribed by health care providers.
But they can also help prevent or treat serious infections, and many doctors are taking them seriously enough to recommend them to patients who need them.
“The flu shot has saved hundreds of thousands of lives, but we need to be very careful about it because it can lead to serious complications,” Dr. Matthew Henson, director of the division of influenza prevention at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said in a recent video.
“We have to be able to monitor it.”
Henson was speaking about the flu shot.
The flu shot is now available to anyone over the age of 16 who is at least six months pregnant or who is planning to become pregnant.
If you’re not a pregnant woman, you’ll need to get an exemption from your state.
Hanson said the flu is one of the most commonly used vaccines, but he said it can be misused.
“I think there is a real risk to the public because people are afraid of it,” he said.
“It’s just a matter of time until we start to see more and more cases.”
It’s been estimated that roughly 1 in every 1,000 people will get a new influenza infection, according to the CDC.
Henson said if we can prevent more people from getting sick, that would decrease the risk of a pandemic.
But even without the flu vaccine, Henson’s office sees many people getting sick who need to receive the flu shots.
For example, a recent study found that people who have been vaccinated are more likely to get flu shots than those who haven’t.
In addition, the CDC says that in the past five years, the flu has spread around the world.
Dr. David Schatz, an infectious disease physician at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, said the pandemic has been a boon to health care.
When the flu was first discovered, he said, health care systems were still struggling with the effects of the virus.
Today, many of those systems are able to treat patients in a safe and effective way, which helps reduce the risk that a patient will get infected with the flu.
And it is possible for flu shots to be used as a last resort for people who are already sick, Schatz said.
Schatz said he is seeing people who had previously been treated for other illnesses get sick again because of the flu virus.
“The vast majority of people are going to go to the hospital with a flu-like illness and it is not a good outcome,” he told ABC News.
A vaccine does not protect against the flu, and doctors can’t tell patients to stop taking their flu shots unless they feel they are at high risk of catching the virus again.
People who are worried about getting sick from the flu are encouraged to contact their healthcare provider, but they can do so without feeling the need to go through a long wait.
