Oklahoma's 2017-18 Flu Season Underway
In the 2016-17 flu season, which was described as a "moderate", more than 600,000 were hospitalized due to complications from the flu, said Jernigan.
According to the latest report by the MoH, deaths as a result of influenza have reduced over the past three years, with the 2017 season seeing eight cases of deaths so far, compared with 2015, which recorded 25 deaths. "In the United States, millions of people get sick, hundreds of thousands are hospitalized and tragically thousands or tens of thousands die from flu each year", Dr. Jernigan said in a recent interview.
Influenza (flu) vaccine can reduce your chances of getting influenza, or it can make influenza less severe if you do get it. The seasonal quadrivalent vaccine also includes influenza B vaccine virus, a B/Phuket/3073/2013-like virus (Yamagata lineage). Seasonal vaccine is recommended for people at higher risk such as healthcare workers, pregnant women, elderly, patients with chronic medical conditions as well as pilgrims. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends everyone six months of age and older receive the vaccine each each.
The flu vaccine is safe and does not cause the flu, states the Arkansas Department of Health. A year ago the first flu-related death in Idaho occurred in December, and a total of 72 individuals in the state died due to flu-related illnesses.
Influenza IS.an upper respiratory infection. Influenza symptoms are usually worse than a cold and last longer.
Stay home from work, school, and other public places if you are ill. "Getting vaccinated today will help protect you and your family now and for the rest of the influenza season".
It takes about two weeks for protection to develop after vaccination, and protection lasts through the flu season. Flu vaccine will protect you from certain strains of influenza but it can not prevent flu caused by other virus strains not covered by the vaccine or illnesses that look like influenza, but are not.
Flu shots are not ideal, but they are the best protection modern science has against the disease.
