Why young, healthy people are dying from the flu this season

Flu hits York County. Vaccine is less effective this year

Flu hits York County. Vaccine is less effective this year

The B strain started circulating much earlier than usual, said the agency.

But until Friday, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey and Hawaii had been spared the "widespread" designation because those states had relatively fewer cases than other parts of the country. Widespread is the highest level of flu activity, which indicates increased flu-like activity or flu outbreaks in at least half of the regions in the state. Each summer, scientists gather and try to make a best guess on which variants are going to be more common in the coming year. This calendar year's influenza season was controlled with the H3N2 strain, that will be associated with acute ailments especially one of adults on time of sixty-five and kids younger than five. Twenty children have died nationwide compared to three children this time previous year.

Shannon Medical Center's Director of Marketing, Lyndy Stone, reported, "Our Emergency Department has been very busy with patients with flu and other respiratory illnesses".

The rate of flu hospitalizations - the number of people hospitalized with flu per 100,000 - almost doubled last week compared with the previous week.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention on Friday released its latest flu report, and MS is one of 22 states with an increase in the number of reported flu cases.

"We don't offer elective surgeries over the weekend so we will have a better sense of the situation for next week starting Monday", said a statement sent to CTV News on Saturday.

Donald Trump says bipartisan DACA settlement 'a giant step backwards'
President said Friday that he was not pleased with the bipartisan DACA agreement calling it "a big step backwards". Inside the White House, staffers were largely unfazed, even as the political and diplomatic fallout mounted.

The impact of the flu is far and wide, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Seven children died in the first week of January, bringing the total number of nationwide pediatric deaths to 20, according to the Post's report.

"Signs to look out for are fever, body aches, it comes on pretty quickly and then you had headache and runny nose", said Andrew Zurcher, nurse practitioner at CHI Health's Quick Care on 50th and O streets. "The vaccine is available at doctors' offices and many retail locations". Complications, which may be serious, can include pneumonia, bronchitis, and ear and sinus infections. If you haven't gotten one yet, experts agree it can still be effective.

"This is not a live vaccine, so you can never get it", he said. Dr. Eugenia Bacani, with Memorial Hermann Medical Group, has been a physician for 30 years. It's not yet known how effective the vaccine is for this season.

Woodward said he then drove away, but returned a few hours to look for Blaze in and around the area, but couldn't locate him. He agreed to be further interviewed at the sheriff's headquarters in Santa Ana, where his story "stayed fairly consistent".

One of the strains of influenza circulating the United Kingdom this year is a type of A flu known as H3N2. "This is the busiest flu season I've ever seen". If a person is healthy, it is OK to visit, according to a statement from the hospital, but they are asked to wash their hands before and after visiting. "We've clearly based the baseline in November and we're at the peak of it now".
