Cases of flu tend to ramp up mid- to late-December and peak in January or February, according to Paul Sax, an infectious disease physician at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. "It's important that North Georgians understand the best way to protect against influenza is to receive an annual flu vaccine".
"In a good year, the flu vaccine can be 70 percent effective".
If you haven't gotten a flu shot yet, it's not too late, according to Denton County Public Health.
Health officials are warning that the flu season could be bad and that it's coming early. Getting a flu vaccine is more convenient than ever.
There are two major things that could contribute to this. He said this year's vaccine should work.
"It can be due to a change in what's circulating in the human population, or a change in the vaccine that leads to a mismatch" between the virus and the vaccine, Hirsch said. A protein within the egg can modify the strain, making the vaccine less effective.
Doctors say the vaccine is inactivated, so getting one can only help prevent you or your family members from getting the flu virus.
"We're still seeing colds from the fall season but we're beginning to see sporadic flu activity in the community", said Dr. Chris Cunha, a pediatric doctor in Northern Kentucky.
