Flu season expected to be bad health officials warn

For the second consecutive year the Centers for Disease Control is recommending against using a nasal flu vaccine commercially known as FluMist. Settle for an old fashioned shot in the arm instead. Even for children Flu season expected to be bad health officials warn

Flu season starts early this year in the Badger State.

He said past year, there were 47 influenza-related deaths, including two pediatric deaths, identified in New Hampshire.

If someone is infected despite vaccination, generally they have a milder illness than if they'd skipped the shot, Schaffner said.

Those centers report data to a handful of WHO sites around the world, and those sites in turn track which strains are circulating.

With flu season looming, the University of Minnesota'sBoynton Health is setting up flu clinics across campus.

There is usually no need to see a doctor if you have flu-like symptoms and are generally fit and healthy. "We begin promoting the availability of flu shots once we have the flu vaccine inventory in our stores", wrote Allison Mack, a Walgreens spokesperson, in an email.

If you are at risk of more serious flu, consider getting an annual flu vaccine to help reduce your chances of being infected. Strains for vaccines are grown in hen's eggs. Additionally, SJBPH can provide flu shots for eligible children and adults who qualify for federally supported vaccines if they are unable to receive them from their primary care provider.

The flu vaccination rate among all Americans was 48.6 percent last season, up just 1.2 percentage points from the prior season. "Influenza comes around every year, and the vaccine works very well". More than 73 million doses have already been delivered.

All vaccines protect against two types of influenza A, which can be transmitted from animals.

Most experts believe flu viruses spread mainly by droplets made when someone with flu coughs, sneezes or talks. Influenza B strains, which only affect humans, tend to pick up later in the season.

"After a year, your immune system isn't where it quite should be so you need a little booster", said Neubauer.

Among pregnant women, 54 percent said they were vaccinated in 2016, which is the same as the last four flu seasons, the CDC researchers reported.

And though you can ignore an unwanted houseguest, you can't ignore the flu: The U.S. Centers for Disease Control says that deaths attributed to the illness have ranged from 12,000 to 56,000 annually since 2010.

Getting vaccinated also protects people around you. "It's for everyone that you encounter in the grocery store, at work", she said.

By two weeks after vaccination, the body develops antibodies to protect against the viruses in the vaccine.

The elderly and children are among the most vulnerable to the flu.

"Antibiotics kill bacterial infections not viral infections and the flu is a viral infection". But influenza symptoms rarely include intestinal or stomach symptoms such as diarrhea and vomiting.

Another good way to stay safe is keeping clean.

Teenager Grace Goggins got her flu shot Thursday and says she avoids spreading germs by avoiding eating and drinking after friends.

Pneumococcal vaccination also is important for adults 65 and over, Neuzil said.

It's nearly flu season, which means flu-shot season.
