No cost flu shots to be offered while supplies last

Each year, they're prepared for when flu season rolls around. "We may be on track to break some recent records".

The CDC estimates that more than 17,000 people in the USA have been hospitalized with flu-related illness since October.

The CDC considers the 2014-15 season "moderately severe" with high levels of illness, hospitalizations and deaths compared to previous seasons and has used it as a comparison to the current season.

To protect youth from the flu, the CDC recommends everyone 6 months or older to get vaccinated, although there are a variety of vaccine types depending on the age.

"This one arrived early and continues to spread, leading many people throughout the commonwealth to get sick with a fever and cough or a sore throat".

This season's predominant flu strain is H3N2, which causes the worst outbreaks of the two influenza A viruses and two influenza B viruses that are responsible for seasonal flu epidemics each year.

"I wish that there were better news this week, but nearly everything we're looking at is bad news", said Dr. Anne Schuchat, acting director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

At this time, Anemone said the district does not have any indication that their influenza data would warrant a school closing.

Recognizing flu warning signs is critical too. He said the shortage is emblematic of how severe this flu season is.

The Disease Outbreak Control Division's weekly influenza surveillance report for the fourth week of the 2018 flu season, from January 21 to 27, was released on Wednesday. OR and Hawaii, the exceptions, both recorded regional activity for the fifth week of the year. A total of 10,418 influenza-like-illness cases have been reported statewide - 381 of which from Passaic County.

"We do have some pharmacies in the area that will tell us that they are out this week of Tamiflu", said Pittsburgh pediatrician Dr. Patrick Tate.

The CDC has rated this year's flu as "widespread" in 49 states, the most prevalent the virus has been in that many states at once in the past ten years.

"More deaths are related to that strain of virus than would normally be expected", he said. We need to "keep being vigilant", she said.

Lopez said the strain H3N2 of the flu has fatalities on the rise among children and the elderly.

According to influenza surveillance reports compiled by the Department for the week of January 28 to February 3, influenza activity remains very high in the state. In addition, the vaccine is 42 percent effective against the influenza B viruses, which are also circulating, the researchers said.
