Confirmed cases of flu rising across NY state

According to the CDC, each year will see an estimated 5 to 20 percent of the population in the United States get affected by the flu. This indicates a much higher activity of the virus this winter compared to previous winters, resulting in many more people becoming sick due to the flu. The campaign started for healthcare workers from October 10 and for the public from yesterday and will last until end of the flu season. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports Colorado is now one of two states with the highest level of influenza activity.

Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicates influenza activity in the state is moderate, with 121 people across the state having been hospitalized in the 2018-2019 flu season as of December 8. He says that although it takes up to two weeks for the shot to take effect, it's still a significant protection against the illness. If they don't get flu shots by the 31st, then they must be kept home from school for the duration of flu season (through March 31), unless they get the shot. As the infection progresses, the body's immune system responds to fight the virus. The immune system response can also trigger fever and cause muscle or body aches.

Do not cough or sneeze into your hands.

Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing or sneezing - throw the tissue out right afterwards.

Respiratory illnesses, including the flu, have hospitals such as CHU Sainte-Justine in Montreal working overtime. People with the flu are infectious for up to 7 days after symptoms begin.

One reason for hospitalization can be pneumonia, which is a "very well-known complication of influenza", Bogoch said.

Very young children, seniors and people with medical conditions such as heart or lung disease are most at risk of contracting flu. A flu shot can lower a child's chance of dying from the flu by up to 60%. They accept walk-ins and no appointment is necessary. Children four to eight years old can be given a vaccine with a prescription from their doctor.

What will be the Flu vaccine market size and expansion rate in 2023?

"Flu vaccines are safe and effective". Influenza Vaccines Consumption market research is conducted leveraging the data sourced from the primary and secondary research team of industry professionals as well as the in-house databases. "We've been telling our patients for a long time to look out, because the flu numbers are going to be going up, so we're officially in flu season". But, people 65 years and older bear the greatest burden of severe flu disease.

The number of people getting sick from the flu in MI is lower than this same time past year, according to statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Choosing to get the flu shot - for yourself and for your children - is a "no-brainer", Bogoch said. It is associated with a stronger immune response following vaccination for a higher antibody production. It can be far worse for high-risk groups.

Family Pharmacy now has a few doses on hand of the high dose vaccine, but has more on order.

The state confirmed Michigan's first flu-related death last week.
