Flu cases spiked the most in the South with the number expected to rise as we head into the peak of flu season.

According to the CDC, everyone 6 months of age and older should get a seasonal flu vaccine each year.

On Long Island and beyond, the annual menace is on the move spread in droplets launched through coughing, sneezing and even conversations held at close range. They showed that when a vaccine is considered effective, 1.2 percent of vaccinated people had the flu, while 3.9 percent of unvaccinated people had the flu.

Official stats show 53 flu sufferers were admitted to intensive care wards in the past fortnight, with cases doubling in just a week. At all 31 Physicians Immediate Care locations, doctors are seeing a 20 percent spike in patients. It about takes two weeks for protection from vaccination to set in, but as I said, we have a lot of flu season to get through still.

Claim 2: While everybody should be alert for flu-symptoms, doctors are most concerned with people over 65 years old and younger than five years old.

That, along with a shortage of some of the vaccines because much of it is manufactured in Puerto Rico, which has been hit hard with hurricanes and a lack of relief, Gila Regional Medical Center CEO Taffy Arias told Grant County commissioners Thursday, is causing a high number of flu cases in Grant County.

I was on a call with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention this morning and they were updating people across the country.

By comparison, at this time previous year, there was only one flu-related death and none in the 2015-16 flu season.

Canada-wide, there have been 54 flu-related deaths so far this winter.

The particular strain of H3N2 flu that is affecting the United Kingdom is similar to the type that Australia suffered from earlier this year, during their winter. "If the whole industry does that, they could make needed changes to the vaccine more quickly".

It's as a new heatmap puts part of our county in the red for the number of reported cases of flu-like bugs.
