Hello welcome to help plug I'm Dr.
Manny even though it year after year would tell you to get the flu shot 61% of liberals still do not get vaccinated.
He had to help me change that and to tell us about a new top of flu shot is active Chris O'Donnell.
And in turn as doctor Carlos because thank you for coming -- -- -- -- -- -- Chris.
See I tell everybody get the flu bit of the flu shot they don't listen to -- to me you know wonder why.
Bowl I'm old and look at you that -- look into that camera right now you tell the American public got the flu shot it's for a -- today you'd.
-- out and get your shot -- that -- funny I'm usually the last one that wants to be dragging it a flu shot at least historically have been right.
I've got I've got five little kids now so -- make more of an effort to make sure we get India Russia and is that the reason.
Is that the reason that you got involved in this camp -- AS are the reason I mean it.
For me it's it's really important and you use you know with little kids -- and -- walking -- up silently really.
Gotta wash your hands it's you know strep throat or it's an ear infection but a flu shot at something you can take care of and you -- get done.
And the flu can be really dangerous for really young people -- elderly people I think it's important people get out there and we're just trying to help raise awareness that it's it's that time a year the new.
Batch of of flu vaccine out and it's time to guide I did something different this year I did that the flu is on -- -- vaccine yet we gonna we gonna get into that in the second but I've got a wanna get a deal.
Because you know again what the statistics.
But tell me about the mortality morbidity of the flu every year in America.
As you know the of the more BDT teams this season to season but not ladies is serious disease and you know would normally between 55 and up to 250000.
People become hospitalized as a result of the flu.
So it's something that's -- -- we can avoid.
Probably with 33000.
People die every year -- suburbia alone.
What what what can we expect.
You know the question a -- -- was -- rises about.
The the the strains.
That are expected for this year.
What what are -- thoughts about the the strains that are that are affecting the flu season is here -- world.
The there were a healthy and they say son comes out in February with recommendation and that makes the -- kobasew sort of Lexington brief and estranged.
-- vaccine this is something that is updated and I nearly.
The vaccine has the need -- in it -- -- that he -- H1N1.
Right is it 2009 with some with the case similar educational things and other it's three and two.
And then of course he would be -- both the H three I -- to have been fully updated for this year that's what listed eastern.
And Chris the last time I saw you although he lied and you program but you know who have been -- That's really if you read Kevin -- to see instantly and with my glass -- you know getting my antioxidants.
But but but.
And -- you know you would be somebody who -- Batman movies but somebody told me you're afraid of needles.
I might that be like it's it's -- I don't know because active being dragged to the -- doctors akin to being arrogant of you you you blame your parents I -- well I don't blame -- but you know what it it came from something -- that's always been -- like I literally fainted -- my wife gave birth to our first daughter so I just have never been a -- that's -- -- thing for me has been so this this company comes along has has beautiful -- journal injection tell me about that.
Well the needle is it's 90% smaller than -- you know it's just going it's it's an internal villagers say just goes below the surface this cancer it's not going -- down of the muscle.
And it all right it's of course not look like looking at the epidural needle that my wife -- she -- birdie literally almost a feeling right.
It's literally like a prick in your arm and and dot.
What's the extortion is the same thing this -- -- -- needle -- the regular needle for the flu shot.
Yes and the amount of -- in his defense.
So we haven't -- -- -- -- on the agenda but.
Because the dentist that superficially of this in that case is talking about -- so reach and immune sales.
And -- and he's -- percent in sales.
That small amount of -- -- -- -- the very robust very good response when it comes to antibody response so.
Their regular vaccine used to going to the muscle you know too because that's -- in the muscle has more.
More blood supply and Sydney to skated into the fat -- get into the muscle -- -- must but these new form is too early for proof you cannot.
Not get it into the into the dentist now this is an FDA approved.
Personally I was FDA approved FDA approved device the vaccine itself is the same that you get in the standard delivery system.
Right that vaccine it well the amount of on these in these different.
So that Reagan of exe has fifteen micrograms.
Of on -- in there strained right these 1009 micrograms sort of the amount consider to be different but.
When it comes to the the type of responses to body would develop to it.
Whose equipment so the same things -- -- -- a regular shot.
You still get the immunity and have you get this -- for durable injections get the same community right correct okay.
Same age category now it's not approved for it it's preferable eighteen to 64 labor go to -- sixty -- kids right.
Potential side effects and you wanna tackle that they wanna get into the -- document again that I have to side effects of this outside a fixed -- every time your body -- He's scientist with -- it would be amended and you can put this would develop some not some reactions of some great businessmen and open with temperatures may have some redness of -- -- injection.
When it comes to Contra indications.
-- there -- almost no quantity case of before we used to say that you -- of who had.
Big allergies should not be vaccinated with you know -- collections but now that he's changing wished him the recommendation is due to.
-- to adultery you have it in life threatening reactions such as Tamiflu vaccines cronies bid to avoid or at least -- -- and -- you get unionized deleted -- supervised situation.
But that was interest in what he had said before we're talking about it was it it a lot people -- wolf I go to the flu shot gonna get the flu.
Right you know that's why don't -- the solution that's -- the reasons we don't do it -- it's just not it's not but it's a policy of.
-- really -- you get just the -- -- these.
You know Michael proteins that will generate in immune response you don't get it to flu virus that has everything to do replicate that and cause disease but even in the regular Felicia you don't get that you know you don't.
You know what it's got to get some popular myth and ran I think -- you talk about that and the fact that only a third of adults -- -- get flu shot right.
One of the reasons people like myself that don't like having needles -- other -- -- people that think I'm -- -- the flow right and the fact is you get you know on a third it would get them but.
The large majority obviously doesn't wanna get the flu and doesn't -- -- -- oneself prevent the spread of it and yet they're not going out to get they the shots I like this and every angle I'll give you the last word.
Play it for from it was a great experience.
Like I -- I've got five kids it's a priority for us to get our shots.
And guess that's the big brave when going to get the shot I hate needles right right so this is a great discovery for me Tamiflu is an epidural yet and -- dharma -- it was a it was a great experience you know look I think it I think you've got a winner because again with a -- advantage -- the egg -- advantage.
The Mercury through pain free and and of course the the less sort of the less amount of exposure to the dead virus I think you've got to win and it's easy to -- go to the flu zone dot com website that's in contact your local pharmacist or health care provider it's it's and it's available everywhere right.
Parliament will thank you both for coming great to be here in -- good -- -- now everybody.
