For most healthy people it will usually clear up within a week, albeit a fairly unpleasant week. "As in past seasons, the highest coverage was associated with workplace vaccination requirements".

"I definitely think all older people over 65, anyone who has any lung disease, but basically anyone can get it", said Konopacka.

Each year, the flu season can be extremely risky and it is vastly important to protect both oneself and the people that one comes in contact with every day. "You should do it for the babies and grandmothers who could get sick and die if they get the flu". The CDC, Center for Disease Control, tracks the various strains of the flu and change the vaccines to help fight the most common strains that are found each year. In the previous season, around 17,500 people received shots from Boynton, including about 9,000 students, according to data provided by Boynton.

If you care for someone over 65 it's advisable to get vaccinated too, so that you can protect yourself and the person you care for.

Zhigarev gave some simple advice: "first, maintain your immune system at a normal level; second, avoid concentrations of people in confined areas, mass events; third, wash your hands, because dirty hands infection also is transmitted".

"You should get a flu vaccine before flu begins spreading in your community", Kelly Parrish, RN, director of nursing with the Sampson County Health Department, said. "It's unfathomably incorrect and it has no scientific plausibility". In addition to the slightly unpredictable nature of this virus, it takes up to six months to create the vaccinations and ship them off to medical providers. The virus is then at risk of being transferred to more vulnerable people such as the elderly and those with existing health problems.

"It's a fairly tough little bug", Golden said.

A possible reason for the relatively low number of cases could be that there was a good level of immunity to the circulating H1N1 strain, she said.

"Things like beer pong are a great way to pass influenza", Golden added. In fact, a from the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases recommends that vaccination programs should be advertised in a student-driven way. "It's literally hands to hands and mouth to mouth".
