Sullivan County Public Health Services is urging everyone six months of age and older to get vaccinated as soon as possible. So, if you do get the flu it won't be as severe. That number is from the time flu season began in October through the first week of January. According to the City of Racine Health Department, the number of people hospitalized with the flu ranged between 15 and 23 between 2012 through 2016. Studies show that for children, a shot can significantly reduce the risk of dying. Wash your hands frequently and avoid touching your mouth, nose and eyes. When formal testing becomes more common, that means the flu will be listed as a contributing cause of death more often on the death certificates that eventually get reviewed by the epidemiologists who put together the region's weekly flu report. No, the vaccine didn't make you sick.

"We encourage people to get a flu shot if they haven't already and to practice good hand hygiene, cover up coughs and sneezes and to stay home if they are sick", Dillman said. It's even more important for patients to see a doctor if they have a chronic medical condition such as diabetes or heart disease, or if they are young or elderly.

"Flu is seen year round in pets", said Dr.

The CDC is calling the flu vaccine a fail this year, since the percentage of effectiveness is low across the majority of the country. According to a report in the Los Angeles Times, however, Tamiflu supplies are running low.
