Free Flu Shot Clinics Offered In Effort To Fight Outbreak

Flu killing 4000 every week and is responsible for 1 in 10 deaths in the US right now - with Tamiflu shortages reported

Beer said during past flu seasons, about 80 percent of flu-associated deaths in children have been those who were not vaccinated.

"This season is now following within expected range in terms of the number of weeks of elevated activity, but the actual level of activity is pretty remarkable", Budd observed.

Flu season usually takes off in late December and peaks around February. Pediatric deaths from the flu are required to be reported to the department, but the department can not discuss the specifics of individual cases.

"I always get the flu shot and haven't had many problems with it", Hyde said.

Schuchat said the nation is now in the eleventh week of the 2017-2018 flu season, and almost all states remain rife with the virus, except for OR and Hawaii.

"It's been a though season needless to say, We'd like to say its calming down however today we've seen a bunch of flu return again, so it's hard to say but I don't think it's over quite yet", said Berman.




Influenza has been widespread and severe throughout the nation this flu season. Schuyler County Public Health actively monitors the flu and flu-like illness in the county each year. "If you have asthma or other lung diseases, you are at higher risk of developing complications from the flu". Keeping yourself in isolation can prevent giving the flu to students who may work in the Kinder Haus or to commuter students that go home to young children. The team said some have suggested the possibility of slower development of age-related immune response to influenza B. Antiviral medications are the most effective at the onset of illness.

On Monday, officials with Vanderbilt University Medical Center released its flu numbers for the last six weeks.

She says in Waterloo Region, 14 people have died due to influenza but all of them were over the age of 50 and "predominantly" over 65 years of age. Edwards wondered. She also noted that bronchiolitis was diagnosed in 22 deaths.

Most people who feel sick won't need to see a doctor, she noted. Edwards wrote that knowledge gaps include finding clues to tell which patients might benefit from immediate antibiotic use, what are the best ones to prescribe, and what are the resistance patterns of bacteria detected. Separately, 13 children were hit by severe flu and two of them died.

"Our latest tracking data indicate that influenza activity is still on the rise overall", Schuchat said in a conference call with reporters last week. A quarter of the hospital's emergency department visits are by patients with flu, and the hospital has added nursing staff and placed some beds in hallways to accommodate the increase, Marchetti said.
