First Flu Death Of Season Reported

You might think hospital workers who realize this would be first in line to get the flu shots.

The CDC recommends getting vaccinated before the end of October. It can also prevent flu-related hospitalizations.

The flu season has just begun but Tulsa health leaders want to make sure families are taking precautions.

PORT ANGELES-State health officials are already seeing influenza cases across the state, and they expect the number to rise in the coming weeks.

Both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Dubois County Health Department recommend getting a flu vaccine annually.

The flu is a contagious respiratory infection caused by the influenza virus that often comes on suddenly.

It's true that the effectiveness of the flu vaccine fluctuates from year to year and that it's less effective than other vaccines because flu viruses rapidly evolve.

Quebec Public Health Minister Lucie Charlebois said the vaccine is free for individuals who are more at risk of developing complications from the flu.

Garvey says you can help yourself and everyone around you by not infecting them if you do get the flu.

That's right on track for a normal flu season. Flu symptoms may include fever, headache, tiredness, cough, sore throat, nasal congestion and body aches. The "stomach bug" which causes diarrhea and vomiting is not caused by the influenza virus, but usually by norovirus; thus, the flu vaccine will not protect you against this illness.
