Expect a Bad Flu Season

Expect a Bad Flu Season

"If this persists, there could be kind of a double-barrelled threat with B/Yamagata and influenza A/H3N2".

According to the Department of Public Health, there have been no flu-related deaths this season, but there have been 32 hospitalizations and flu activity is only increasing.

Flu is a contagious, viral illness that causes mild to severe symptoms that, in rare cases, can lead to death.

Experts say that 24 people had to be hospitalized within the last week due to the virus, bringing the total number of hospitalizations to 135.

But she said it's too early to predict what strain will predominate or how severe the season will be. "And I think you have to speak out, stand your ground and make other nurses feel they can as well". "But whether it's going to be a B or H3N2 or mixed is still open".

And the B strain circulating isn't a Victoria lineage as predicted by the World Health Organization, but a Yamagata known as B/Phuket.

"The influenza vaccine still provides some level of protection".

"When we measure vaccine effectiveness, that's effectiveness against protecting against disease completely", said Schaffner, who was not involved in the CDC research, though he is a liaison representative of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, which develops recommendations on the use of vaccines for the CDC.

Judge refuses to free four Catalan leaders as elections near
Campaigning began Tuesday in Catalonia for fresh regional elections on December 21. Bekaert said legal proceedings in Belgium were now over.

The flu shot you'll get is the same that used in Australia.

According to the department's reports, it was child who did not get their flu shot this year.

"But for others, healthy young adults with no comorbidity and no close contacts with such conditions, it's a personal choice". Something we all want to avoid but remember even the shot takes time to take effect.

"People from those areas are getting ready to travel for the winter holidays, and they'll bring flu with them", Mills said.

Does Trump Have It Out for Mitt Romney?
Romney softened his opposition before the election, however, and was briefly considered to serve as Trump's secretary of state. But Trump, who has clashed with Romney in the past, said he wants Hatch to run for re-election.
