More than 5,300 cases of Influenza A have been recorded in Alberta so far in the 2017-2018 season, while over 2,800 cases of Influenza B have been logged.

The eighth week of flu season in MA showed that influenza-like illness activity accounted for 5.11 percent of visits to reporting outpatient sites in the state for the week ending March 2.

Strains of the flu killed scores of Americans this year, with over 100 deaths among children recorded.

Carteret Health Care announced Thursday it has lifted visitation restrictions to the hospital, effective immediately, as the number of flu cases reported across the state declines.

One reason the season has been so bad: a vaccine effectiveness rate of just 36% overall and 25% for the flu strain causing the most illness.

"We can not say for sure which virus will be circulating", said Wenqing Zhang, head of the WHO's global influenza programme.

If you're going to implement a mandatory flu vaccine policy, you must be careful.

"In previous years, we had "mandatory participation, ' meaning that everyone had to declare a "yes" or 'no" were they going to get the influenza vaccine", Prabhu tells HealthLeaders Media.

It may be too soon to say, but the number of influenza cases is trending down in the commonwealth, according to the Virginia Department of Health.

Flus generally are more serious in the youngest and oldest and those with compromised immune systems, but the flu this year has sent more children than adults and seniors to emergency rooms for treatment.

He explained that for a pandemic to happen, there needs to be a "dramatic shift" in the flu virus - something we can expect to see roughly every 20 to 40 years.

The numbers help health officials compare one flu season to another. "We monitor the situation going on there", she said. "However, the reality of such a vaccine is likely to still be many years away", Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said in prepared remarks to the House Energy and Commerce Committee. "You can catch them back to back to back like that".

The Hampton and Newport News health department locations are offering free flu shots, while supplies last, officials said.

"As along as flu is circulating, people should - if they have not already - still get their flu vaccine", she said.
