Walgreen's survey revealed 40 percent of Americans believe this season's flu severity will be the same as previous year and 12 percent say it will be worse. In Oklahoma, 27 people have been hospitalized for flu-like symptoms between September 1 and October 16, according to the State Department of Health's weekly statistics.

The man's death marks the first statewide, according to a tweet from the state Department of Health. The people at the greatest risk of influenza-related complications are adults and children with underlying health conditions, residents of long-term care homes and other chronic-care facilities, people 65 years of age and older, children under 60 months of age, pregnant women, and Aboriginal peoples.

He name was not released.

About 132 million doses of the vaccine have been distributed so far, and about 168 million will be available through the 2018-2019 flu season, according to Fry. "When you get the flu shot, you improve your chances of going flu free this season. Doctors recommend it because we know - based on science, research and facts - that it is the best way to protect yourself and your family against the flu". CDC said 80 percent of the children who died last flu season did not receive a flu vaccination."One is too many", Melanie Gardiner, community health nurse program supervisor at the Charles County Health Department, said by phone last week.

"It ultimately is a personal choice", she said.

"It does not cause the flu because the virus in the vaccine is very, very, very weakened", Schmidt said. Overall, the point is to make it easy for people to get vaccinated even if they hate needles. Persons in this age group have a higher risk for complications from influenza.

Henry explained that the outlook on the vaccine match and influenza severity comes from comparing data between the Northern and Southern hemispheres.

Other ways to prevent the flu is avoid touching the face, clean and disinfect surfaces that are frequently touched, and get plenty of sleep.

The viruses' genetics change from one year to the next, and so every year, new vaccines need to be made to account for those changes.

"We have excess deaths in the elderly every flu season, and see previously healthy kids and adults critically ill and dying in the ICU every Christmas".
