2017-18 Flu Season Is Looking Like a Bad One

Expect a Bad Flu Season

'Continued efforts are needed to increase the percentage of the population vaccinated during the next few months in order to reduce the burden of flu, ' the authors of the CDC report said.

"Are doctors who administer the vaccines supposed to earn spiritual merit", she asked, in a sarcastic reference to comments by Premier William Lai (賴清德) in October asking caregivers to look past their low salaries and regard their work as a way to earn spiritual merit.

As Christmas approaches, health officials are warning Oklahomans that the flu is spreading across the state.

Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts and Oklahoma reported widespread activity during the week ended November 25, the report stated.

The CDC says that hospitalizations and outpatient visits because of the flu cost people more than $10 billion a year.

"So given that, particularly for the H3N2 component, the vaccine effectiveness we're anticipating will be low", predicted Skowronski.

Experts say that 24 people had to be hospitalized within the last week due to the virus, bringing the total number of hospitalizations to 135. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to build up and protect against the flu.

Independents - not BJP - won Uttar Pradesh civic polls
BJP, however, managed to grab 70 seats of Nagar Palika chairmen, followed by 43 independents, SP 43, BSP 29 and Congress 9. Mayawati's remarks came a day after her party came second to the BJP in the civic body polls held in Uttar Pradesh .

Although H3N2 is not as virulent as some other strains of flu, it mutates very easily, making it stronger against the body's immune system. You're less likely to have severe flu. "We want to help educate grandparents to understand the seriousness of the flu and their higher risk of developing complications from this risky and potentially deadly disease".

The CDC also advises people to wash their hands often to prevent spreading flu, and to stay home if they're sick so they won't spread it to others. As part of the series, Joan Mann also discusses how her adult daughter, Kendra, sadly succumbed to the flu at age 35.

"The most predictable thing about flu is that it's unpredictable", Brammer said.

Doctors said strains A and B are more common in Wyoming.

"It makes me a little sad that people across the country - especially pregnant women - may not be getting the recommended and appropriate health care", Altmann said.

"Some patients believe the possible side effects outweigh the positives that they get from prevention", she said.
