And Dr. William Schaffner, who is involved in the CDC's flu surveillance network in Tennessee, has noticed cases of influenza picking up "dramatically" in the last week.
The second major strain of influenza - B - already has been found even though it typically doesn't appear until February, according to Canada's FluWatch Report. You can get a sore arm, some bruising, some discomfort, you can get an achey feeling for 24 hours - but you can't get the flu from the flu shot. As for the flu shot, it's still not a waste to get one.
That report comes after a week in which the incidence of the flu was on the rise in London and across Canada, reports from health authorities show.
Gum says that even if the vaccine is five percent effective, people should still get it because that's a five percent chance out of 100 that you will be healthy.
"I don't want anybody to fall into the false sense of security that just because we aren't seeing large numbers that they really don't need to worry about the flu because they do", Goforth said. The research was based on data collected during the 2013-14 influenza season in Japan. "It is always best to get vaccinated than not to get vaccinated". When vaccines are well-matched to circulating strains, estimates of effectiveness range between 40 and 60 percent, according to the Journal.
"Every year we have several folks die from influenza". Anti-viral medication, available through a doctor only, may shorten the illness.
The CDC recommends everyone six months and older get a flu shot each season. A total of 3,441 infants were included in the study, 39% of whom had mothers who received the flu shot either during pregnancy or in the first 6 weeks postpartum.
"It's estimated that between 15,000 and 35,000 deaths are caused each year by the flu and its complications", DeMaria said. "At MHS we have seen an increase in illness-related absences over the past week". It's not just a bad cold: high fever, muscle aches, fever, laying in bed, you're very sick. Some people, especially young children, also have diarrhea and vomiting.
Flu season has started earlier than usual and a recent study suggests this year's vaccine is less effective than in years past - a risky combination that has state public health officials warning people about the potentially deadly virus.
