When is the best time to get your flu shot? What if you have had COVID, should you still get a flu shot? Is it safe for kids, pregnant women and seniors to be …
HIS FIRST LIVE LOOK AT
PLAYHOUSE SQUARE THIS MORNING.
IT IS OUT DOWNTOWN SO BE
CAREFUL. IF YOU ARE HEADING
THIS WAY. SO FLU SEASON AND
COVID-19 ON A COLLISION COURSE
THIS YEAR AND THAT'S WHY IT'S
MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER TO
GET A FLU SHOT.
BUT WHEN SHOULD YOU GET
YOUR FLU SHOT TO MAXIMIZE
PROTECTION FROM THE VIRUS. SO
WE HAVE DOCTOR FRANK ESPER AN
INFECTIOUS DISEASE SPECIALIST
WITH THE CLEVELAND CLINIC
GIVING US SOME INSIGHT. THIS
MORNING DOCTOR THANKS FOR
BEING WITH MY FIRST QUESTION
IS WHAT KIND OF FLU SEASON
FIRST WE PREPARING FOR THIS
YEAR.
YOU KNOW WE REALLY DON'T
KNOW WHAT TO FROM THE FLU THIS
EVERYTHING IS GOING ON WITH
THE CORONAVIRUS ALSO AFFECTS
THE INFLUENZA VIRUS. YOU KNOW
WE LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED DOWN
AUSTRALIA THINGS ACTUALLY DID
HAVE A TERRIBLE DISEASE
BECAUSE EVERYBODY WAS SOCIALLY
DISTANCING AND EVERYONE WAS
WEARING MASKS. WE EXPECT
WHATEVER WE'RE DOING WITH
ROBERT EYES IS GOING TO AFFECT
ALL THESE VIRUSES, BUT WE
CAN'T TAKE THAT FOR GRANTED
WE'VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT THIS
ALL MORNING DOCTOR ABOUT
TIMING OUT THIS FLU SHOT.
BECAUSE OF THE COVID
PANDEMIC SO IS THERE A AS A
DAY AT TIME A MONTH OF WHEN WE
SHOULD BE GETTING IT SO IT HAS
THE GREATEST EFFECT ON US.
YOU KNOW THE BEST TIME TO
GET IT IS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE
AND ACTUALLY TAKES 2 TO 4
WEEKS FOR VACCINE TO ACTUALLY
GET ALL AFFECTED MISSING
PROTECTION IN PROTECTING
AGAINST THE FLU. SO WE'RE
WRAPPING UP OUR NEXT IN JUST
TODAY A IN CLEVELAND CLINIC,
BUT ALSO ALL ACROSS THE REGION
WE SHOULD BE TALKING TO DOCTOR
IS GETTING OUR VACCINE IS SEEN
AS YOU CAN.
WHAT ABOUT ANY SPECIAL
CONSIDERATIONS LIKE IF YOU'VE
ALREADY HAD COVID.
YOU KNOW IF YOU HAD TOLD ME
YOU KNOW YOU KNOW DISTANTLY IN
THE PAST IT SHOULDN'T THE
VACCINE AND HOW WELL IT WORKS
AND YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO GO
IN OBVIOUSLY IF YOU HAVE
CORONAVIRUS RECENTLY THEN YOU
NEED TO TALK TO DOCTOR IT'S
PROBABLY BEST IF YOU'RE IN
QUARANTINE NOT TO GET THE
VACCINE YOU ARE SAFE TO
RECEIVE THE VACCINE AND TO BE
AROUND OTHER PEOPLE I KNOW
WHAT ABOUT KIDS PREGNANT WOMEN
AND ALSO SENIORS. RIGHT THESE
THESE ARE THE PEOPLE WHO ARE
MOST AT RISK OF GETTING REALLY
REALLY BAD. LOU. UNDER THE AGE
OF 2 OVER THE AGE OF 65 IF
YOU'RE PREGNANT. IF YOU HAVE
HEART PROBLEMS LUNG PROBLEMS
IMMUNE PROBLEMS THESE ARE
GOOD. PEOPLE THAT INFLUENZA
CAUSES REALLY REALLY BAD SEAS.
ONE OF THE BEST THINGS THAT IS
BY SEEING DOES IS PREVENT YOU
FROM BEING HOSPITALIZED
PREVENTS YOU FROM ANY AND
INTENSIVE CARE UNIT. AND SO
THIS IS ONE OF THE REASONS WHY
WE REALLY FOCUS ON THESE
GROUPS TO MAKE SURE THEY DON'T
GET REALLY REALLY SICK.
DOCTOR EXPLAINED THIS WEEK
HE THIS THIS IS COVID THIS IS
COVID A SIMPLE COLD,
EVERYTHING'S COVID NOW SO
EVERYBODY IS CONFUSED. SO KIND
OF BREAKUP MAY BE SOME
SIMILARITIES THE DIFFERENCES
BETWEEN COVID AND FLU SEASON
AS WE HEAD INTO IT HERE IN THE
NEXT MONTH.
WELL THE ANSWER IS YOU
REALLY CANNOT TELL WHAT YOU
KNOW YOU HAVE ONE VIRUS OR
ANOTHER. JUST BASED ON MANY OF
THE SYMPTOMS THERE ARE A FEW
THINGS THAT SUGGESTS
CORONAVIRUS BUT ANYBODY WHO
HAS FEWER ANYBODY WHO HAS HAD
A GUN, BUT HE HAS COUGH. RUNNY
NOSE, STOMACH PROBLEMS THAT
COULD BE ANY NUMBER OF
VIRUSES, INCLUDING CORONAVIRUS
INCLUDING INFLUENZA VIRUS.
DOES IT END AND TEND TO HAVE A
HIGH FEVER, ONE 1, O 3 B'S IT
WAS A LOT OF UPSET THE
CORONAVIRUS IS DON'T HAVE AS
OFTEN BUT THEY STILL CAN THE
ANSWER THOUGH IS THAT IF YOU
FEELING SICK, AND YOU THINK
THAT YOU'RE COMING DOWN WITH
ANY VIRUS YOU SHOULD ASSUME
ITS CORONAVIRUS IN ADDITION TO
INFLUENZA VIRUS OR ANY OTHERS
AND TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR OKAY.
BEFORE I LET YOU GO THE
ASTRAZENECA VACCINE TRIAL WE
TALKED ABOUT THIS THIS WEEK.
NOW IT'S BEEN HALTED BECAUSE
OF A SPINAL CORD ISSUE WITH A
PARTICIPANT JUST YOUR QUICK
SOTS EVEN CONCERNS ABOUT THIS
AND WHERE THEY'RE HEADED WITH
THIS VACCINE.
WELL I THINK THIS IS
ACTUALLY NOT TO UNEXPECTED
HAPPENS IN A LOT OF DIFFERENT
TYPES OF MEDICATION TRIALS IF
THERE'S ANY EVENT THAT MAY OR
MAY NOT BE ASSOCIATED WITH THE
VACCINE. THEY USUALLY STOP THE
TRIAL AND DO AN INVESTIGATION
TO SEE WHETHER OR NOT THE
VACCINE OR MEDICATION HAD
CAUSE FOR THIS AND SO UNTIL
THEY FEEL THAT IT'S SAFE TO
CONTINUE GOING CONTINUE TO
HOLD IT. AND UNTIL THE
INVESTIGATION IS DONE IT'S NOT
TOO SURPRISING IS ONE OF THE
REASONS WHY A VACCINE TRIALS
TAKE SO LONG BECAUSE WE REALLY
FOCUS ON SAFETY.
YOU DON'T WANT TO RUSH IT
THAT'S FOR SURE DOCTOR ESPER
THANK YOU WE APPRECIATE YOUR
TIME UP FROM THE CLEVELAND
CLINIC THIS MORNING.
ALL RIGHT COULD BE YOUR
