Flu shot immunization innoculation influenza health syringe needles

Of the 52,706 cases tested by Sentinels in California during for the first 13 weeks of the 2017-2018 flu year, there were 11,673 that tested positive for influenzas or 22.1 percent.

CT is still four to six weeks out from peak flu season, but in just the last three months the state has seen more than one thousand confirmed flu cases. ACMC, which participates in the Minnesota Department of Health influenza surveillance program, experienced "a really big spike" in influenza-like illness right after the holidays, Lesteberg said.

The DPH urged people to still get the vaccine because it can still help.

Respiratory illnesses are accounting for a noticeable increase in patient visits to Willmar's Rice Memorial Hospital as well, according to Kathy Dillon, chief nursing officer.

The number of cases is now at the highest in three years, but still nearly 50% lower than the swine flu outbreak of 2010.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that the number of Americans hospitalized with flu per 100,000 nearly doubled from 13.7 for the week ending December 30, to 22.7 admissions per 100,000 Americans for the week ending January 6. The vaccination still offers protection against other strains of the virus, and the California Department of Public Health says 70% of the people who died from flu there so far were not vaccinated.

"That's an indication of the surge of flu cases in the state", Day said.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated that this year's vaccine is only about 30 percent effective. Those at highest risk for flu complications are pregnant women; the elderly; children younger than 5; and people with asthma, diabetes, chronic heart and lung disease and other chronic conditions.

"If you do become unwell with flu or flu-like symptoms, you should stay at home - most cases of flu are likely to be mild and can be managed at home with over-the-counter remedies", she said. The Department of Health says that's the best way to prevent it.

Local health providers and Kandiyohi County Public Health are emphasizing preventive habits: frequent hand washing, covering coughs and sneezes, getting adequate rest, and staying home when ill. "You feel like you've been run over by a truck", said Cartter. People hate to miss school.

Symptoms of flu tend to come on suddenly.

Infection with the flu virus can cause fever, headache, cough, sore throat, runny nose, sneezing and body aches. "We're seeing a high amount of them as well". Persons who develop flu symptoms should seek medical advice to determine if they should be treated with an antiviral drug, which could shorten the course of the illness or reduce its severity.
