Tioga County Marks National Influenza Vaccination Week

Influenza virus claims first Edmonton patient in 2017, cases triple since last year

He said with more people getting vaccinated, the more the community as a whole can be protected from risks of getting the virus.

'We don't know what's going to happen but there's a chance we could have a season similar to Australia, ' Dr. Daniel Jernigan, influenza chief at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told The Associated Press. And Dr. William Schaffner, who is involved in the CDC's flu surveillance network in Tennessee, has noticed cases of influenza picking up "dramatically" in the last week.

The Coconino County Public Health Services District is encouraging everyone to get a flu shot to help protect against illness. The CDC estimates that 40% to 50% of people who get vaccinated might still get the flu. National Influenza Vaccination Week is a time to highlight the importance of flu vaccine throughout the holiday season and beyond.

There have been 136 confirmed cased of influenza reported to the Health District as of November 25.

And the flu season could be severe, as well as early. You can have deaths because of respiratory illness which causes hospitalizations. The two people who died were older than 65, according to a release from the health department. You might need it if you find yourself battling the flu.

"However imperfect, though, current influenza vaccines remain a valuable public health tool, and it is always better to get vaccinated than not to get vaccinated", the paper said.

Australia's bad flu season may have been due, in part, to a mismatch between the flu strains included in this year's flu vaccine and the flu strains that were circulating in the public.

But the Fauci article points to another possible factor: most flu vaccines are grown in eggs.

For needle-phobes, there's a skin-deep vaccine that uses tiny needles, and a needle-free jet injector that shoots another vaccine through the skin. "I'd say we're about three or four weeks ahead of where we would be in a typical year - but many years are atypical". If you've had your flu shot, doctors say there are signs the vaccine against the main strain is only about 10 percent effective.
