First child in Florida has died of flu this season, state reports

The first Florida flu death of the season has been reported.

"While you may not get your flu jab as early as in previous years it is important that you still get it when invited as it will give protection". "Although not ideal, the flu shot is a valuable and life-saving public health tool".

The Department of Health and Community Services says 125,000 people across Newfoundland and Labrador received the flu shot in 2017 through the province's publicly funded vaccination program.

State officials said those outbreaks did not cause the child's death.

28 percent of parents believe flu vaccines can cause autism.

About 80,000 Americans, including 180 children, died last year in the deadliest flu season in more than 40 years, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

"After extensive studies, we know that the flu vaccine is safe", said Moorjani. Parents can opt for the nasal mist this year, and even if the flu vaccine is not a flawless match for the strain, health officials say it decreases symptoms and severity.

Health officials say two laboratory-confirmed cases of the flu have been identified in one adult and one child in the Central and Eastern Shore regions of Maryland.

The CDC is urging everyone older than six months old to get vaccinated now.

Here's a bit of good news from the survey: about 70 percent of the parents said that the flu vaccine is the best way to protect their child from the flu.

They say getting a flu shot is the best way to prevent from getting sick, and passing it along to others.

The Department of Health office did not immediately respond to a request for comment. "If you are infected with the flu shortly after getting your flu shot, your body may not be able to fight it off", said Moorjani.
