"F$3 or some patients, the flu vaccine actually can decrease their risk of death", Ladapo told the site.

OSDH reports that approximately 231 people in Oklahoma have been hospitalized due to influenza and approximately four influenza-related deaths in Oklahoma have been reported since January 3 and a total of 22 since the season began on September 1. This makes it especially important to take steps to protect yourself and those around you.

The nation is having a awful, horrible, no good, very bad flu season.

Although influenza activity continues to increase across B.C., the Northern Health region is not seeing a particularly unusual influenza outbreak season so far. The component in the same vaccine that fights H1N1 flu, on the other hand, is about twice as effective.

"We are now seeing a mix of flu types, including the A (H3N2) strain that circulated last winter in the United Kingdom and then in Australia".

However, just over four in 10 of those aged under 65 who are considered "at risk" have had their flu jab this winter. Is that true in SLO County? Influenza is really hard to track because we can't track every case. Recently published studies found that people vaccinated against the flu are less likely to have serious complications that could put them in the hospital.

The flu is also spread by touch, Dr. Browne said.

"You're much better off than not getting it, but the strains that were in the flu vaccine this year are not necessarily the strains we are being faced with", he said. Don't share the flu.

People are advised to catch coughs and sneezes in a tissue, bin it, and then wash their hands afterwards to kill the germs.

Nationally, as of mid-December, at least 106 people had died of the infectious disease.

Kayla S. Johnson, Health Educator and Promotions Coordinator for the Moffitt Health Center, said there were about 200 cases of the flu on campus, and the clinic is gearing up for the spring semester's returning students. Your healthcare provider can help you determine if there is a reason you should NOT receive the vaccine.

Should I go to the emergency room if I have the flu?

What Are the Symptoms of Dog Influenza?

Local pediatricians offices are swamped with concerned parents whose children either have the flu or flu-like symptoms.

But that's where the similarity end as the flu can not be spread between people and pets.

KM: Just like with any illness, if you have symptoms that you're concerned about, certainly call your physician. Wash your hands, before and after.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. "The flu shot, while not foolproof, is still your best defense", says April Rodríguez, RN, Community Health Nurse Manager for RVNA.

This year's flu season began earlier than normal, but it's not too late to get a flu vaccination if you haven't already.

Should I take Tamiflu or other antiviral medicine? Its an antibiotic for the flu. Taking antibiotics when you don't need them can expose you to unwanted side effects and can contribute to antibiotic resistance, making the drugs less effective when we do need them. "It is an unpredictable virus and it is not possible to anticipate how flu levels will progress".

Doctors also advise that people with the flu stay home until all their symptoms have subsided.
