CDC Recommendations 2022-2023:

Annual flu vaccination is recommended for everyone 6 months and older, with few exceptions as has been the case since 2010. New this season, however, is a preferential recommendation for the use of higher dose and adjuvanted flu vaccines in people 65 and older over standard dose, unadjuvanted flu vaccines. More information on this new recommendation can be found here.

Things to know about the flu shot:

  • It takes about two weeks for the flu vaccine to take hold and be protective.
  • Getting a flu shot cannot give you the flu. Some people can get mild symptoms in the first few days as their body develops antibodies.
  • The flu vaccine comes in several varieties. Consult your doctor to determine which is best for you.

Revisiting a Conversation About Our Sense of Smell

An on-going topic and cause of concerns being discussed since the onset of COVID-19 is the sense of smell.

Some of you may recall in August 2021, I interviewed Frauke Galia, of Falk Aromatherapy on my Wellness Connections podcast #11. In that podcast Frauke explained that there are various types of smell dysfunction ANOSMIA, for example has become a keyword when one becomes infected with COVID-19, and they temporarily lose the sense of smell. There’s also PAROSMIA, which is a smell dysfunction that distorts our sense of smell. You think that you smell one thing, and it is actually something else.

In addition, smell dysfunction has been linked to the early onset of some cognition problems. Read more at: https://www.judithguerra.com/smell-memory-for-senior-citizens

He is also part of AARP’s Staying Sharp programs. He interviews Dr. Zara Patel on his Chasing Life podcast, and she discusses olfactory training – aka – “smell training.
