Tuberculosis is the most commonly transmitted respiratory disease in the U.S. and its symptoms can include fever, cough and flu-like symptoms.
While many people with tuberculosis can safely receive a flu-vaccine, many people who don’t have the disease are not protected.
Here are some common misconceptions about the two.1.
A flu shot protects against flu-specific symptoms.
A new study from researchers at the University of Washington and the University for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the Massachusetts General Hospital found that flu-susceptible people who received a flu vaccination also had lower rates of severe respiratory infections than people who didn’t get vaccinated.
The study, published in the journal Lancet, found that those who got vaccinated had significantly lower rates (2 percent versus 4 percent) of severe illness compared to those who didn.
This suggests that flu vaccine protects against certain types of flu-associated symptoms.2.
Flu vaccines don’t protect against all respiratory diseases.
A recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that people who had received a placebo were less likely to contract influenza-related infections than those who received flu vaccine.
This finding suggests that the flu vaccine might be less effective than previously thought.3.
Flu shots are expensive.
A vaccine costs $6,300 for a four-dose regimen and $12,000 for a six-dose.
That’s more than $3,000 per person per year.
The vaccine is also costly because the cost varies depending on which flu shots are being used and which strains of influenza viruses are circulating.
Flu shot cost $7,500 in 2009.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services reports that the average cost per person for flu vaccine in the United States is $10,400 per year, or about $12.5 billion per year—or $19,000 a person per day.
In other words, the cost of flu shots is a little higher than the cost per vaccine, but not nearly as high as the cost to the federal government.4.
There are other ways to protect against flu.
If you’re in good health, the flu shot is probably not going to be the best choice.
A study published in Science last year found that the vaccine may not be as effective as flu shots against influenza-like illness, such as pneumonia, as well as the flu, even when taken in combination.
A third of people who get the flu-containing vaccine don’t get flu-related illness, the study found.
It’s possible that the vaccines also can’t protect people against all types of influenza, but that’s a debate that needs to be resolved.5.
You can get flu shots through other health care providers.
Health care providers can also administer the flu vaccination.
For example, you can get a flu jab through your doctor, and you can have a flu test through a healthcare provider.
If the health care provider has an emergency room appointment, you should ask for a flu booster shot.
This is especially important if you’re not certain about the vaccine.6.
You should only receive the flu vaccines if you need them.
Some studies suggest that people are more likely to receive a vaccine if they know they’re going to get a cold or are getting a cold.
That doesn’t mean you should be vaccinated just because you’re going through flu season.
Instead, you need to be vaccinated because you can.
You might also want to talk to your healthcare provider about getting the flu jab as soon as possible.
The flu shot might be a good choice if you can’t get the vaccine for a few weeks or if you don’t know if you’ll be protected.
