Beaumont restricting children visits to all hospitals due to flu season

Flu epidemic is crippling America - particularly kids: Rate of under-fives hospitalized with deadly H3N2 has DOUBLED in just one week - as CDC warns new viral strains are emerging

The flu outbreak is widespread in CT, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The bad news is that the peak of this year's season is just getting underway. The lone flu death in Marin County this year involved a person under 65, and it's not known if the person was vaccinated.

Sentara family medicine and internal medicine practices have the vaccines for $75 out of pocket, but individuals without insurance can get the shot for $37.50, according to Sentara spokeswoman Kelsea Smith.

More than 300 people have been hospitalized and least four have died from influenza-related illnesses in Georgia this season.

Headaches, fevers, muscle aches, sore throats, coughs, runny noses and sneezing are all signs of the viral infection.

Those susceptible are the elderly, those who are very young or those with a weakened immune system.

Economic Buzz: China Caixin Services PMI Accelerates To 53.9 In December
Services Purchasing Managers' Index or PMI stood at 50.9 for the month, a report by Nikkei said on Thursday. Panellists linked rises to higher raw material prices, which partly stemmed from supplier delays.

Last year there were nine flu-related deaths, the previous year there were seven and three years ago there were 28, according to Nydam. Judging by the latest data, this could be one of the more severe flu seasons in recent years.

"The symptoms of Aussie flu are essentially the same as normal flu, but can be more severe", said Now Healthcare Group's Medical Director, Dr Ben Coyle. In San Diego county, 46 people have died from the flu.

The free flu shots are available without an appointment. "We are seeing an increase in hospitalizations but it's nothing we don't normally see during the month of January". If you think you have the flu, go see your primary care provider within the first 24 to 48 hours of symptoms.

Australia was hit with an unusually bad flu season, with far more illnesses and deaths than average. The CDC is expecting this year's vaccine to be 30% effective.

"If someone is vaccinated and they encounter someone with influenza - unless the vaccine that they received isn't a flawless match - they still will have reduced symptoms as well as a potentially shortened course of the illness", Echols said.

If you're sick, stay home from school or work.
