The vaccine also takes about two week to provide full protection against the flu so it's advised you get a shot sooner rather than later.

"They have a less tropical climate, one that's more like ours", Patel said in a news release. The flu is a serious disease.

"Our flu season started early this year", explained the Pima County Health Department's Deputy Director, Paula Mandel.

Approximately 340,000 doses of vaccine were ordered by the province for this flu season; of that 250,000 doses have been administered.

Influenza vaccines, also known as flu shots, are vaccines that protect against influenza. "While it's imperfect, if you have a common disease with substantial morbidity and mortality, you prevent a lot of cases", says Richard Zimmerman, a flu epidemiologist at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. This year, there have been no severe cases or related deaths, Corson said. "Every year, we see hospitalizations and deaths from the flu here in our region".

“As long as the flu is still circulating in your community, its not too late, ” said Lisa Grohskopf, M.D, Medical Officer at the CDC. "It mutates as it goes from person to person, that's why it's so hard to predict what season we'll have".

MedExpress pointed to a November 29 perspective published by The New England Journal of Medicine that began: "As clinicians in the United States prepare for the start of another influenza season, experts have been watching the Southern Hemisphere winter for hints of what might be in store for us in the North. Reports from Australia have caused mounting concern, with record-high numbers of laboratory-confirmed influenza notifications and outbreaks and higher-than-average numbers of hospitalizations and deaths".

There are many varieties of the flu vaccine.

In the United States, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Massachusetts, and Georgia reported an intense flu activity.

The flu vaccine may not be 100% effective for everyone. And those projections come from what happened during the previous flu season in North America, along with what is happening in other continents around the world.

There's also the other method of self-defense: Washing hands. Now circulating viruses seem not to have undergone significant antigenic drift; circulating A (H3N2) viruses are antigenically less similar to egg-grown A (H3N2) viruses used for most United States influenza vaccine production.
