Flu vaccine delays for over-65s

Health officials believe they have created a vaccine more effective against major flu strains this season

If you are experiencing those symptoms, call a doctor as soon as possible.

"We really want people to understand that you can't get the flu from the flu shot", Jean Moorjani, a pediatrician at Orlando Health, told Health.

The season was driven by a kind of flu that tends to put more people in the hospital and cause more deaths, particularly among young children and the elderly.

How long does it take for the vaccine to take effect?

Medical and care home staff are spreading the flu because so many are not taking the optional vaccination, they said, adding that the jab should be compulsory for all front-line healthcare workers. This figure, as reported by the Associated Press, comes from Dr. Robert Redfield, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and it's the latest overall estimate that really puts the most recent flu epidemic in proportion.

Even in a normal season, Health Canada says influenza-related complications can land about 12,000 Canadians in hospital and kill 3,500. "It could change a bit, but right now, it looks like they are well matched".

If your child can not have a vaccine, the flu mist is back this year.

The flu is a common viral infection, that in serious cases can be deadly.

Children between six months and nine years old who have never had a flu shot need two doses, with a minimum of four weeks in between. Doctors can report statistics and offer a broad glimpse at how bad the flu season is - and past year those warnings came swift, with cases piling up rapidly - but it's hard to nail down an exact number.

The CDC has been doing everything in its power to ensure we don't have a repeat of the previous flu season, and recently issued a bulletin emphasizing the importance of being vaccinated.

Health officials say the flu is already present in Oklahoma and has led to several hospitalizations in the state.
