   Another reason to get the pneumoccal vaccine has been documented. Those who have received the vaccine lose their nasal carriage of the bacteria resulting in a form of herd immunity. The incidence of the disease in unvaccinated small children has dropped dramatically as a result of vaccination of children.    ER Doc
It is better to give than to receive.

Yipee, My man, who is turning 50 next year ,has suffered from chest infections and sinus problems for years now. Constantly coughing up green thick mucus, Has been on antibiotics almost continually for the last 18 months, Double the normal doseage. Told him about the PPV 23 shot after reading about it here and he asked the GP for it and was given the prescription no questions asked.  $40.

Walgreen's advertised Flu and Pneumonia shots. Flu shot is $25 and pneumonia shot is $40. The dates are October 1 through 10/31. For exact dates & times call 1-800-FLU-9950 or 1-800-358-9950 or www.walgreens.com/flu I went today for the flu shot. They had me fill out a simple questionnaire asking if I had any allergies to eggs, thimersol, or previous reactions to a flu vaccine, my birth date, name, address,& age. They did not ask if I had any health conditions such as asthma, or heart conditions. It appeared that as long as you paid $25 check or cash anyone could get the shot. An outside company/nurse gave the shot. I've never had a flu shot in my life, even when I worked at the hospital. The only reason I got it was because of Webster's claim it may provide some protection against the pandemic influenza(even though I am totally skeptical). We all had the pneumonia vaccine in January 2006 thanks to this forum. I've decided to have the entire family (2 adults/2 children) get the flu shot also. When TSHTF I want to feel I've done everything possible.

I went to CVS yesterday to try and get a Pneumonia shot for myself and kids but they wouldn't give it because I wasn't over 65 and wouldn't give it to my 12 year old. Has anyone else had a problem receiving a pneumonia shot from a flu clinic? I live in MA?

Thanks,

Alabama is the only state so far that has more than a handful of cases of influenza,   see map at http://www.cdc.gov/flu/weekly/usmap.htm
So no need to worry about supply.  Massachusetts rarely gets any cases before December.  Public health authorities here say we expect more vaccine than we may use by the end of the year, unless more people decide to get it.

I'm 47 and I went to CVS Pharmacy today and got a flu and pneumonia shot with no problem.  They said they were only giving out flu shots to adults 18 or older. I live in Texas.  While I had the opportunity I ask the RN administering the shots what she has been told about prep for H5N1.  She said she has not heard a thing, but that I was the second person to ask her about it in the last hour.

Hi 4thegirls -- Yes!  I'm from NH (we're probably practically neighbors).  I couldn't get it for myself or teenage daughter just the other day.  My Dr. said we didn't fit "the criteria"  I said, okay--will get it in a walk-in...
My daughter has already had an experience with pneumonia and suffers from allergies.  Anytime she get's sick, it goes straight to her lungs.  I was so stunned when she said no for her I'm embarrassed to say I didn't say "why not"?  I reminded her of her condition and she repeated she didn't fall into the criteria.  She said she wasn't trying to give me a hard time and recognized I was just being an advocate for my daughter - which I truly appreciated.  I said I wasn't trying to give her a hard time either.  She then said I'll give it to her but it probably won't be covered (which I could care less about - when it comes to this)  In the midst of this back & forth discussion, my 16 year old called time out and said SHE DIDN'T WANT TWO SHOTS IN ONE DAY ANYWAY!!!  Talk about SEIZING AN OPPORTUNITY!!!  LAUGH    OUT    LOUD!!  So I gave in and said we'll reconsider/reschedule.  This is probably a VERY STUPID QUESTION but could this be because it could be somehow more of a risk for her to get it?  Or is it purely an insurance thing?  Can anybody out here respond to this?  My Doctor's a good one but she's just not on the same page yet with this bird flu thing.  Sort of just looks at me when I mention it.  However, a few months ago when I mentioned it, she broke into a BIG SMILE.  I commented her smile as odd and then said, is it that there's nothing you could do for it?  And she said EXACTLY!!  It's just out looming out there ready to strike and for once my conscience would be free (as in, having no party to it's victims / her patients).  Yikes!!  Shows the burdens our good doc's carry on their shoulders day in and day out!!  Thankful4u

I'm not sure what to do with this thread.   I suppose we should place it back in med interventions and off the main forum.

Thank you GG.  Since we're the only site that ever mentions it, I can only assume that it probably doesn't help our image much by having it as our primary sticky topic.  I'm not sure of the type of message that it sends about us.     

I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving as well.

The pneumonia 23 shot is given to children if they have had their spleen removed,have sicle cell disease. I have been able to push thru on ONE patient the prevnar and the pneumovax. He has been admitted to the hospital seven times with pneumonia,ao the insurance thought it was worth the money....

Until now there is no medicament can stop the avian bird flu .
 
i have find that real way to escape , is Yakuso anti flu (personal air purifier)
 
have been tested .
 
please read the information about this products its real magic ,its sales
 
by Dazer international : 00441733315888 

yakuso firstly launches the new air purifying product 4 into the market.
According to requirement of the anti-bacteria technology for the new navigation 4th of air purifier and the criterion of the air purifier in future, Yakuso has formulated the standard of anti-bacteria air purification 4th with the help of Disease Prevention Organization Disease Control & Research Centers inside and outside Asia.

Yakuso adopts firstly the ultraviolet light as sterilization in the series of air purifier 4th. The efficiency for killing bacteria & anti-bacteria reaches 99.99% which has met the medical sanitation standard.
Through the inspection by Yakuso scientific research center in Asia Disease Prevention Organization Disease Control & Research Center, Yakuso series of products can efficiently kill staphylococcus aureus, escherichia coli, rheum bacterium ,flu ,and other infective bacteria. It also efficiently removes the chemical gas like formaldehyde ,H2S, NH3 in the air. The purification efficiency reaches 99.99% which has met the medical sanitation standard.

3 in 1, technology of Navigation 4th and 5-layer purification symbolize the technology for Yakuso air purifiers is leader in the world
Yakuso 4-layer compound filter has passed the testing by the Environment Inspection Academe in South Korea and hong kong and has reached the peak in the world .
Yakuso firstly adopts the ultraviolet light for sterilization, and applies the intelligent technology such as the Apollo automatic air sensor, Samsung IC and automatic aroma spraying etc. It actually embodies the humanity for its spirit.
yakuso generates anion via negative corona discharge. When negative
voltage is applied to sharp needle, negatively charged electrons having enough energy to cause ionization are emitted from the needle at high speed. They collides against air particulates to generates anions.
What is important is how to control the concentration of anion. yakuso air cleaner emits 186 billion electrons per second to purify contaminated air, and keeps anion density at 1000 ea per 1cc of air or more to do good to human body.

Activated Carbon in Yakuso Air Purifiers :

I. Introduction
The presence of activated carbon in Yakuso air purifiers may be a mystery to you, unless youíre a aquarium hobbyist, or own a water purification system which uses carbon. For many people, the first time they encounter it is in selecting home air purifiers. Although most of our customers begin their search because of allergies or asthma, many soon realize how much odors and the chemicals with can cause them also contribute to their respiratory problems. Thatís why Yakuso air purifier systems also address these issues.
II. History and Use in Purification Processes
As many as 2000 years ago, human beings were using activated carbon to remove impurities from water. Even then itís exceptional adsorption qualities were known. However, it was not until the early 1900ís that it was produced in a form (as powder) that could be sold commercially. At that time it was used to purify water (so that it had no smell or taster) and to take the color out of sugar. As World War I got into swing it was discovered that it could be used in gas masks to protect soldiers, as well as for war time water and air purifiers. Instead of being used in powder form, granular activated carbon was developed. From that point on, activated carbon was used in many ways.

Yakuso netative ions
Negative ions help freshen and purify the air by causing allergens such as pollen, mold spores, dust, and animal dander floating in the air (which have either a neutral or a positive charge) to be attracted to and stick to each other, forming 'clumps' (because opposite charges attract). These clumps of particles then become heavy enough so that gravity can pull them down to the floor, where they can be vacuumed up, rather than staying in suspension where they can be breathed in and cause allergic reactions.
The following diagram will explain how negative ions remove the pollutants from the air.
Negatively-charged negative ions attach themselves to contaminates and allergens, which are positively-charged. The newly-formed larger particles are then able to fall to the ground, and out of the air we breathe.

Function of Ultraviolet (UV) germicidal light :
UV ó found in sunlight ó is at the range of 254 Nm and its photons have just the right level of energy to physically destroy the DNA of microorganisms.
Ultraviolet germicidal protection is a safe and proven technology that uses lamps resembling ordinary fluorescent tubes to generate UVC light to kill bacteria, mold, spores and viruses. Unlike antibiotics, microorganisms cannot develop immunity to UVC light. Viruses are especially susceptible to destruction by UVC.

Yakuso Titanium dioxide :
TiO2 (Titanium dioxide) - The anti-bacterial effect is caused by absorption and decomposition of toxins during the photocatalytic reaction of titanium oxide. All the toxic substance and bacteria such as Fungi will be decomposed by TiO2. The simple diagram will shown these function.

Yakuso Ozone
Ozone : Our ozone generator will generate the high voltage to produce the ozone. The following diagram will explain the odor removal principle.

1) Purification of air:
Various contaminated substances in the air such as cigarette smoke, sulfurous acid gas(SO2),nitrous oxide gas(NOx) and carbon monoxide gas(CO) create positive ions. However, anions generated by air cleaner neutralize, settle and remove these positive ions to keep air clean and fresh. The harmful substance such as ozone reduces to negatively charged oxygen(O2-) via following reaction, and plays an important role in settling problems with deficiency of oxygen.

2) Removal of dust and bacteria:
Positive ions enable bacteria, dust, pollen, mold and contaminated particulates freely float and make foul air. However, anions electrically neutralize and remove them, or charged them negatively so that they are adsorbed and collected by a positively charged powerful dust collector plate installed in the air cleaner.

3) Humidity control:
yakuso air cleaner controls humidity more or less. For example,
It reduces harmful ozone to negatively charged oxygen through the following reaction.
O3 + 2H + 2E -> O2 + H2O
This equation shows that water(H2O) is generated and helps control humidity.

4) Deodorization:
Anion chemically oxidizes, decomposes and neutralizes the source of odor to remove
offensive odor and keep indoor atmosphere pleasant.

Yakuso - The best for pollen allergies
Pollen is a tricky type of allergen and can cause many ruined days for people who suffer from allergies. Pollen can easily become airborne and can be tracked to the indoors from the outdoors by people, animals or a simple gust of wind. It re-circulates in the air indoors and is a threat to any resident with sensitivities to the particle. Itís hard to believe that a small, microscopic particle in the air can give a person so many horrific symptoms but pollen is, unfortunately, a powerful allergen.But with Yakuso you will forget it for life.

Yakuso - The best for dust
One of the most common household contaminants that are present in most residences is dust. Dust can be a hard contaminant to get rid of and dusting or cleaning does not always do the trick. Even the cleanest of homes can still contain dust even if itís not seen on any objects or furniture. Dust mostly contains flakes of skin and dirt. It can also contain pet hair, pet dander and dust mites. These types of particles can become very harmful for residents when they are breathed in. Residents with sensitivities, allergies or asthma can experience symptoms to their conditions when exposed to dust in the air. By breathing in house dust, residents may be breathing in contaminants such as dust mites or pet dander, which can be harmful to air passageways. In order to remove dust from their homes, many people try different dusting chemicals and different types of materials to make the dust cling so it can be eliminated from the environment. However, it is very seldom that these cleaning products or materials actually work and are able to grasp the dust and remove it from objects. Therefore, the dust becomes airborne in the room and can easily be breathed in by any residents that are present. Many dusting materials simply stir the dust up and make it more easily accessible to air passageways . Yakuso are the best way to actually remove the dust from indoor air.

Yakuso-The best for Pet Dander
According to the American Lung Association and Clearflite, reducing the amount of exposure a person with allergies has to a pet is the best ways to prevent allergic reactions. However, many pet owners consider their pets to be members of the family, almost like adopted children. Issues such as the presence of clean indoor air just arenít big enough problems for a pet owner to even think about getting rid of a pet. Unfortunately for many pet owners, the quality of their home indoor air does suffer when a pet is brought into the home. Pets not only shed hair that can cause allergic reactions but can also cause pet dander to become present in the indoor air. Luckily,pet owners can use Yakuso to solve the problem .

Yakuso- The best for MCS
It is still debatable as to whether Multiple Chemical Sensitivity is considered a true medical condition or a simple sensitivity. However, for the people who suffer from this condition, it can be one of the most frustrating and intrusive ways to live. Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, or MCS, is when a person is extremely sensitive to many different types of everyday chemicals. These chemicals can include paint fumes, hairstyling spray, perfumes and air fresheners. Since most of these chemicals cannot be avoided and have to be faced on a daily basis, people suffering from the condition often feel the symptoms everyday. Symptoms of MCS include itchy and watery eyes, dizziness, sore throat or even nausea. For MCS sufferers, removing any chemical fumes from a home indoor air is the best and healthiest way for them to live. With aYakuso, a MCS sufferer can have a safe haven from his or her condition.
