Emergency Room visits for flu highest among babies and toddlers in Virginiaā€¯

While there has been a lot of discussion about vaccine efficiency after an article from Australia reported only 10 percent effectiveness this year, there's more to the story than that, Lantrip said.

The majority of people hit by the flu this season will recover; however, hundreds of thousands of others won't be as lucky.

The latest data is from the week ending in December 2nd, though new data is expected out soon.

Based on these new estimates, adults over age 75 and people living in parts of sub-Saharan Africa are most at-risk of dying from the flu, the study said, and people living in the Eastern Mediterranean and Southeast Asia also face a high risk.

The Oklahoma State Department of Health today reported the first influenza-associated death in Tulsa County for the 2017-2018 flu season.

"Drive through and get your flu shot in minutes at the Pavilion at the National Sports Centre, 65 Roberts Avenue".

"This work adds to a growing global understanding of the burden of influenza and populations at highest risk", lead author of the study Danielle Iuliano, CDC researcher, said in the press release. Current vaccines are said to provide better immunization against influenza B and influenza A (H1N1) viruses and offer lower protection against influenza A (H3N2) viruses.

The Ohio Department of Health, in issuing its most recent numbers, reiterated its stance that getting a flu shot is the best defense against the virus.

Effectiveness of flu shot Is 60%
In the United States, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Massachusetts, and Georgia reported an intense flu activity. There's also the other method of self-defense: Washing hands.

Symptoms of influenza include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. The new estimates reveal the range is likely substantially higher-290,000-650,000 deaths from respiratory-only, flu-related diseases.

Visit www.tulsa-health.org for more information about the flu, including flu vaccination clinic locations and hours of operation, and accepted insurance and other methods of payment. "Most insurances are paying for flu shots, so it's really not a cost to you".

"It makes me a little sad that people across the country - especially pregnant women - may not be getting the recommended and appropriate health care", Altmann said. You should inform your doctor when you have been vaccinated.

Paulina Rodriquez, infection control practitioner at Abilene Regional Medical Center, said that cases are tracking similarly to previous year.
