Jernigan said this flu season looks a lot like the seasons in 2012-13 and 2014-15, both of which saw the H3N2 strain of the virus as the predominant type of infection. "While our flu vaccines are far from ideal, they are the best way to prevent getting sick from the flu and it is not too late to get one", Fitzgerald said. Health officials reported their findings in a Thursday morning phone conference.

The El Paso Health Department reports there are 1,163 confirmed cases reported so far this flu season, as compared to 252 cases this time a year ago.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention on Friday released its latest flu report, and MS is one of 22 states with an increase in the number of reported flu cases. While their research and work is generally very effective, sometimes an unexpected mutation in the virus can cause a vaccine to be less effective.

Twenty children have died of the flu so far, the CDC says.

Iowa joined most other states in declaring the flu "widespread" across the state in the last week of 2017.

Over the past week, cases of influenza rose by 37 percent, and new cases of influenza were reported in 61 of 62 counties - with rates highest in Central New York, according to state statistics. Bliss should contact their primary care provider.

Plus, the proportion of pediatricians not accepting any Medicaid patients dropped 2 percentage points to less than 15 percent. On Thursday, President Donald Trump's administration said states could impose work requirements for Medicaid benefits.

H3N2 typically does produce an increased number of hospitalizations and deaths, Goldman said, and it has been making its mark in Pennsylvania, too. Health experts aren't sure why this season is different. The CDC is expecting this year's vaccine to be 30% effective.

"The influenza vaccination is the best way to protect your family from complications of influenza", said Dr. Matt Willis, Marin County's Health Officer.

The vaccine is available at the county's community health centers. Fitzgerald said manufacturers have produced and shipped over 151 million vaccines as of last month. That's up from the national baseline of 2.2 percent. Health officials said one strain, Influenza A H3N2, is why flu season seems more severe this year.

From Aug. 27, 2017, to January 6, the DPH said there have been a total of 1,015 laboratory samples that tested positive for the flu.

The state is also reporting a number of influenza outbreaks in long-term care facilities, with 49 outbreaks reported this season.
