Health officials educate about flu amid deadly season

Street13 Jan 2018 Newport Beach CA0 13 Jan 2018 13 Jan 2018

Influenza has been reported in all eight counties in CT.

Last year there were nine flu-related deaths, the previous year there were seven and three years ago there were 28, according to Nydam.

When it comes to how the developers missed the mark with the vaccine, it's largely due to doctors at the World Health Organization having to try to predict what strains of the flu will be prominent in an upcoming flu season.

One person has died and there has already been more than 176 confirmed cases of influenza in Marin County during the current outbreak of the disease, according to the Marin County Department of Health and Human Services. To protect the family's privacy, the department can only confirm that the death occurred downstate.

"There are now no vaccine shortages in Ohio", Summit County Public Health said in a news release on Friday. While vaccine effectiveness is usually between 30 percent and 60 percent, the CDC stresses that "influenza vaccination is the most effective now available method to prevent influenza and its complications". Of all tested laboratory samples received by the CDC last week, 83.6% were influenza A and 16.4% were influenza B. Two of the people were between 61 and 80 years of age and the rest were older.

But an update from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows patient traffic for the flu is no longer increasing the way it did in December. "So far this season, influenza A-H3N2 has been the most common form of influenza".

CDC Director Brenda Fitzgerald said the flu is severe and widespread, starting in early October and making its way across the continental United States.

Doctor Quinlisk says getting kids vaccinated is important for them and others.

The flu can cause mild to severe illness. "People typically have a high fever, chills, cough, and body aches", Harris said. Some people may also have vomiting and diarrhea.

Goldman noted Friday while some media reports have characterized this year's vaccine as less effective in stopping H3N2, people should remember the shot can still help people who come down with illness from getting as sick. Dr. Levine says children are among the most vulnerable. "This medication works best if started within two days of onset of symptoms".

Health officials hope this year's flu season is peaking and the number of infected people will soon decline.

The CDC last month reported that the 2017-18 flu season was ramping up at a faster pace than last season. "Be sure to wash your hands, particularly if you are sick yourself", Harris said.
