Two older Oklahomans die from flu

Medical experts Flu season may be a bad one

"Even though we're all using the same flu vaccine, we haven't seen it here in the USA yet".

A commentary published in the New England Journal of Medicine this week estimated that current vaccines are only 10% effective against this year's main flu strain, called H3N2.

The authors of the piece predicted that the United States could potentially experience a "severe" flu season - with higher rates of flu-related hospitalization, mortality, and overall infected people. Sometimes patients may be exposed to the flu or other virus before receiving the vaccine, which can take up to two weeks to become fully effective.

MYTH 1: You can get sick from the flu vaccine. A universal flu vaccine would eliminate the need for annual shots, as well as attack both pandemic and seasonal strains of the influenza virus. Staying healthy during the winter can be a challenge, but simply getting vaccinated and following the basic rules of hygiene you learned as a kid could make all the difference. Officials siad Flu season in Spokane County typically peaks in February. The most common side effects from the influenza vaccine are soreness, redness, or swelling at the site of the injection and, in some cases, a low-grade fever, headache or muscle-ache.

If you are lucky, the flu will only bring some temporary discomfort.




So, the warning that was just put out that this year's vaccine may not be that effective didn't phase her. People older than 50 were most likely to be hospitalized, followed by children younger than 5. Because flu viruses are always changing-it's important to get the flu vaccine as soon as possible.

Navarrette still suggests getting your flu shot to protect yourself and your family.

So far, 105 people have been hospitalized for the flu in Oklahoma.

Trivalent vaccine The traditional vaccine created to protect against three different flu viruses-two A viruses and one B virus.
