Major decline in Aust flu deaths in 2018

Helping Patients Prepare for Flu Season

There have been a total of 20 pediatric flu deaths reported in MS since they became reportable in the 2008-2009 flu season.

This time previous year, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment at least 210 individuals had been hospitalized due to influenza.

"The season hasn't begun to peak yet, and by getting your influenza vaccination now, you can protect yourself", said Broome County Public Health Nurse Marian Hollander.

The flu vaccine is available to adults of all ages, including pregnant women, and children 6 months and older. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that pregnant women with continued concerns or questions about the influenza vaccination should discuss these with their healthcare provider in order to make an informed decision regarding vaccination.

According to the health unit, getting the flu shot during pregnancy protects an infant for the first six months of life.

Pathologists at Houston Methodist developed a real-time website to track flu cases, just in time to assist physicians, the CDC and patients for the fall 2018 flu season. Frank Welch, immunization director for the Louisiana Department of Health.




Therefore, even when "myth-busting" works, the effects might not last a very long time. Flu is more likely to be severe or even deadly in these groups than among healthy adults. We Texans who get the flu shot are protecting our communities and our state, as well as ourselves.

Clover said that its focus on reducing the number of seniors who catch the flu is rooted in the company's commitment to preventative health care, leveraging data and its technology platform to proactively address potential illnesses before they become serious.

"I'm very concerned about our vaccination rates for flu, especially among young children, which dropped 4 percent previous year alone", said Dr. Levine.

More than 300 sites in Vermont offer flu vaccine, including supermarkets, pharmacies and health care providers.

The flu virus can be spread by coughing and sneezing, and it can live outside the body on surfaces such as doorknobs or phones for a short period, according to the DPH.

Seventy percent of Garden State seniors with a household income of $75,000 or more have received a flu shot versus 62 percent of those in households earning $35,000-$74,999, and 61 percent of those earning less than $35,000.
