"Every year, they try to predict what flu strains are going to be around for the following season, and they're not always right", College Health Liaison Eileen Wagener said. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, almost 12,000 people had been hospitalized and at least 37 children had died. Contact your physician for one, it is not too late. "The flu shot can not cause flu illness".

The Oakland County Health Division strongly urges residents to get vaccinated agains the flu as cases reach the highest level in almost a decade.

So what make this flu season so bad? But there are probably several weeks left of increasing flu activity this season, she warned.

Rumpf noted that flu activity is widespread across the whole country this year, making this year's flu epidemic so striking.

Osterholm told me he is anxious about the lack of interest in flu research, and he's anxious more broadly about dwindling budgets for the public health agencies that fund it. You have to wonder how many of those ten percent would have caught the virus anyway even if they hadn't been vaccinated.

She also complains about people without true emergencies crowding into waiting rooms, next to people with the flu. "More hospitalizations and, tragically, more flu-associated deaths in children and adults", Anne Schuchat, acting director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), told reporters on a conference call.

Can I have a reaction? "You don't have to use resources for life-threatening events to see if you have something". The shot may contain egg components, which are used in manufacturing. If you are sick, seek care from your healthcare provider early.

Using a test-negative study design, they found an adjusted overall estimate of 42% (95% confidence interval [CI], 25% to 55%), but adjusted VE against H3N2 was a statistically not significant 17% (95% CI, -14% to 40%), which was less than half the protection offered against the strain by last season's vaccine. "But I don't think students need to be particularly anxious specifically about that strain".

Locally, Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center has announced it will conduct a flu shot clinic from 5 to 8 p.m. on Monday.

In the US, annual flu shots are recommended for everyone age 6 months or older. Less often, a person may also get the flu by touching a surface or object that has flu virus on it and then touching their own eyes, nose, or mouth. That's especially important in classrooms and office spaces.

Certain people are at high risk of serious flu-related complications (including young children, people 65 and older, pregnant women and people with certain medical conditions). Twenty-five of those have been individuals fifty years of age or older.

People who live in nursing homes or other long-term care facilities.

Heart problems (except high blood pressure).

For the most part, however, getting over the flu just takes time.
