CT reports first flu death of season

A person has died as a result of the flu virus in CT, state health officials say.

As we brace for another flu season to start, local doctors are urging people to get vaccinated.

You can not get the flu from the flu vaccine. Doctors evaluated him, gave him IV fluids, and tested him for the flu - it came back positive.The virus spread quickly from the rigorous activity and began attacking his muscles, McGowan explained to a room full of health care professionals during a Bucks County Immunization Coalition training on Wednesday.

Flu germs can live on theses surfaces for up to 24 hours. The season was long, vaccination rates were lower and the vaccine wasn't as effective because the virus mutated after manufacturing began.More than 80,000 people died, including almost 180 children.

Pregnant mothers, children over six months old, the elderly, and patients with diabetes or chronic illnesses are highly encouraged to get the vaccine.

Since it takes the vaccine about two weeks to become fully effective, it's best for everyone to get vaccinated starting in late September through late October. Vail says it isn't easy to predict how severe the flu season might be, explaining that "there were some pediatric deaths a year ago, a number of pediatric deaths".

Influenza commonly called the flu is a viral infection that affects the respiratory system including the nose, throat and lungs. According to Dr. Julie Kryzanowski, senior medical health officer for the Saskatchewan Health Authority, the higher dose helps make sure seniors are protected, because they may not have the same antibody response as younger adults or children.

While we are very early into the new flu season, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports that the circulating flu strains match the strains prepared for in this year's quadrivalent influenza vaccine. Researchers have been working on a universal vaccine, he said, but that's still a long way off."So get the vaccine every year".
