Hawaii is the only state that doesn't have widespread illnesses.

California officials collect flu death data only on people under 65.

Cameron added that the primary function of the flu vaccine is to prevent hospitalization and death, not necessarily to prevent patients from getting the flu. While anyone, particularly individuals who are not vaccinated, can contract the flu, the illness is especially risky for certain groups, including: people aged 65 and older; children younger than two years old; people of any age with chronic medical conditions, like asthma, diabetes, congestive heart failure, or lung disease; and pregnant women.

Yale-New Haven Hospital, the Connecticut Department of Public Health and the Department of Public Health with the City of New Haven addressed this season's rampant outbreak of the flu on Friday at 11 a.m.in New Haven. "It is not too late to protect yourself from what is looking to be a particularly strong flu season".

"Vaccines are like seat belts", said Leung.

While flu vaccine effectiveness is about 60 percent in a good year, experts believe it will only be 30 percent effective this year, said.Health officials had earlier predicted a bad season because of a possible mismatch between the vaccine - which mutated during its growth - and the dominating strain.

Harold Wimmer, CEO of the American Lung Association, cited the flu in urging a deal to avoid a shutdown. However, this year, they're seeing an earlier outbreak of Influenza B, so both strains are occurring nearly simultaneously.

Flu outbreaks are already widespread and may get worse.

"Even if it works less well against the virus that's circulating now, it still can provide protection later in the season if other influenza viruses circulate", Flannery says.

In a bad season, there as many as 56,000 deaths connected to the flu.

Katie Oxley Thomas, a 40-year-old marathon runner and mother from San Jose, died within days of being diagnosed with the flu, as did Kyler Baughman, a 21-year-old bodybuilder from Pittsburgh.

"As long as flu viruses are continuing to circulate, we recommend anyone over six months of age receive a flu vaccine", she said. These numbers do exclude all individuals who have had this season's flu virus, the same number of don't see a specialist when wiped out. Antiviral medication may reduce symptoms and shorten the duration of the flu if taken within 48 hours of the onset of symptoms. There also have been more flu deaths than typical.

Don't spread the misery. They include: sore throat, cough, headache, fever, muscular ache, tiredness, runny nose and sneezing. Hands should be washed frequently.

This suggests that "sneezing does not appear to make an important contribution to influenza virus shedding in aerosols", although it could play a role in spreading the virus through the contamination of surfaces, the researchers said.

"If viruses do not induce interferons, they will not be killed in the first-line defence; and without interferons, the adaptive immune response is limited", said Sun, who also is a professor of bioengineering at the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science.

Influenza is a contagious respiratory illness that is spread through the air and by direct contact with respiratory droplets.
