  • Flu Is Now 'Prevalent' In New York

People most at risk from flu-related death are people older than 75, and people living in less-developed nations, according to the study. At this time previous year, there were 42 confirmed cases and 15 hospitalizations, health officials said.

Emmanuel Kwadwo Tinkorang, has given the assurance that the Influenza Type A (swine flu) outbreak at the Kumasi Academy Senior High School (KUMACA) was now under control.

Getting your flu shot can also contribute to "herd immunity" - less cases of the flu overall means more protection for the most vulnerable people in the population: the elderly, children, and individuals with certain allergies who can't get the vaccine.

Australia is 1 of 5 world health organization location, specifically the infectious diseases reference laboratory representative from each country then make recommendation on the composition if the influenza vaccine, which happens every February.

It's still early in the flu season, but three U.S. states, Louisiana, Mississippi and SC, are experiencing high "Influenza-Like Illness" activity.

United States officials are predicting an especially challenging 2017/2018 flu season, which is just getting underway in the northern hemisphere.

"This (report) is not a reason to not get a flu shot", Saul said.

The man died last week at a local hospital, officials said.

Based on this data, CDC believes that vaccine effectiveness estimates from last season are likely to be a better predictor of the benefits to expect this season against circulating H3N2 viruses in the US.

Yet an expert from the state DPH said it's a bit early to push the panic button and declare this season's vaccine ineffective.

While there has been a lot of discussion about vaccine efficiency after an article from Australia reported only 10 percent effectiveness this year, there's more to the story than that, Lantrip said.

Flu vaccination can also come in the form of a live-flu mist, but the CDC is not recommending that anyone get that this year because it's been less effective than the shot in recent years. Doctors still urge everyone older than six months to get the vaccine, because it takes two weeks to build up immunity.

Otherwise, common sense practices can help you stave off some of the chance of being sick or making others ill, both Lantrip and Rodriquez said.
