Usually, La Crosse County logs about 20 flu-related hospitalizations a season, according to the La Crosse Tribune.

The man's death marks the first statewide, according to a tweet from the state Department of Health. And the best time to do it is now.The flu season predominantly lasts from early October to late April.

He name was not released. The previous high for a regular flu season, based on analyses dating back more than three decades, was 56,000 deaths.

It takes about two weeks after getting a flu shot for the body to generate a full immune response.

"There are a lot of deaths annually from the flu and a lot of illness from the flu every year", Kokaram said, "so we try to get people vaccinated and protected as much as possible".

Both scored 29 Premier League goals during their career, with the latter scoring his goals for Manchester City and Southampton. Lacazette slid a flawless ball back into Ozil's path and he crossed for Aubameyang, who easily tapped home at the far post.

Nesbit also dispelled the myth that a flu shot can cause flu.

Doctors recommend that everyone 6 months and older get the flu vaccine each year to prevent the virus or reduce the seriousness if they do get sick.

The Milford Health Department will be hosting a flu clinic for all individuals nine years of age and older this Thursday, Oct. 25, from 11:30 - 4 p.m., at the Parsons Gymnasium located at 70 West River Street.

"You know, it's in the building", Conneely said.

Marina Mangham, a pharmacy technician at Ralph's Family Pharmacy in Edmond, said pharmacists have been administering the vaccine since the business opened five years ago. The Essentia system, for example, will be given injected vaccines with two influenza A strains and two influenza B strains, providing coverage both early in the season when A strains are common and later in the season against B strains.

Polio-like illness has US parents on edge
Mystery fevers are not very common in developed countries, but since 2014, the USA has been grappling with one. The CDC said certain viruses, such as poliovirus and West Nile virus could lead to conditions like AFM.

31 percent said the flu made them miss time with family, 28 percent on plans with friends, 16 percent on exercise, and 15 percent on entertainment. Early methods to protect yourself and others, such as the flu vaccine, gives people the chance to help themselves and others. "They don't recommend the nasal vaccine for really young people".

"Based on the Southern Hemisphere's recent milder flu season, which runs opposite to our flu season and often predicts the outcome here, we are anticipating a less severe flu season in the USA this year", says Lisa Maragakis, senior director of infection prevention for the Johns Hopkins Health System and associate professor of medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

"The traditional [flu] vaccine that's comes in a shot form is a dead virus, so there's no way you can get ill from the vaccine itself", she said.

A new survey on parents' attitude toward the flu vaccine may shed light on why some continue to resist it even though not getting vaccinated could put their children in danger. Even those who are not eligible for certain vaccines get some protection because the spread of contagious disease is contained.

The impact of this flu season can be heard to predict, but by taking appropriate actions to prevent it could make this flu season a mild one.
