Driving is probably the most dangerous thing most of us will ever do. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, every year more than 30,000 people in the U.S. die in motor vehicle crashes and more than 2 million are injured. Even the most responsible driver can find themselves involved in a dangerous car accident. It is important that every driver on the road know what to do after a crash.
First, take some deep breaths. Our bodies handle car accidents with a rapid rush of overwhelming emotions like shock, fear, guilt, or anger. It is important to try to calm yourself down so that you can handle the situation. This is the time to assess the accident and determine if it was a serious one.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends everyone over the age of six months old to receive some form of the influenza vaccine for the 2016-2017 flu season. However, there are some rare cases, according to the CDC, where the Influenza vaccine is not recommended. This includes:
- Children younger than six months
- People with severe, life-threatening allergies to flu vaccine, including gelatin, antibiotics, or another ingredients.
The CDC also recommends that if you are planning on getting the influenza vaccine that you receive the injectable version. These include the inactivated influenza vaccine (IIV) and the recombinant influenza vaccine (RIV). The live attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV), also known as the “nasal spray” flu vaccine, should not be used during the 2016-2017 flu season, as it has been determined to be ineffective.
At Urban & Taylor, S.C., we’re committed to informing U.S. citizens about the invisible dangers of regular, routine vaccinations that are advertised as being safe 100% of the time. The truth is that our safety is never guaranteed when we receive a vaccination– even for one as routine as a flu shot.
One of the most dangerous vaccine injuries and conditions is caused by the flu shot, in fact. This condition is called Guillain Barré Syndrome, and while rare, it can lead to major implications and lifelong debilitating consequences. Here’s everything you need to know about Guillain Barré Syndrome.
