Flu Hospitalizations Up from a year ago

The flu vaccine may not be 100% effective for everyone. This causes many people to shrug their shoulders and skip it - which, for some, can turn deadly. Children can begin getting the flu shot by the time they are six months old.

Members of these populations suffer from compromised immune systems, meaning their bodies can't fight off flu viruses as effectively.

It's one of many reasons Orlando resident Jan Ador said she got her flu shot.

Hospitalizations are on the rise for a common winter illness. These complications often result in hospitalization, and sometimes become fatal.

"It still provides some degree of protection against the flu that you might not otherwise have", he said.

Practicing good hygiene can offer you and those around you some protection from getting sick.

Health officials like Maggie Hall, with the Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County, say that could be an early indication of a more severe influenza season early next year.

In most cases people feel better after a week.

"C$3 irculating A (H3N2) viruses are antigenically less similar to egg-grown A (H3N2) viruses used for producing the majority of influenza vaccines in the United States", the CDC report said. "You're still talking about 50 to 60 percent effectiveness", Games said.

The vaccine will significantly decrease your odds of getting the flu. "So we won't know for sure what this season looks like until we get into it more".

And just a third of pregnant women have received the shot.

You don't have to pay out-of-pocket to protect yourself against the flu.

"So it's possible that we never really saw a complete end to last year's flu season and we're just picking up where we left off, " she said. "Then, since it was new, we did not know if the H1N1 symptoms would be normal, or something more severe".

Do you have the flu?

He warned it was "inevitable" the flu strain would hit the UK.

While these symptoms might not necessarily be life-threatening to you, they could be to someone else.
