CDC: More children are dying from flu

Officials Flu vaccine was ineffective for seniors last winter

When asked the reason why CCSU would not be offering wellness services for the flu, the university refused to comment.

Mike Iteogu, a pharmacist and owner of Mike's Medical Pharmacy in Macon, said his store also stocked up on Tamiflu in anticipation.

The state is in its seventh consecutive week of widespread flu activity, which is the highest level of flu activity, with at least half of the state reporting increased flu-like activity or flu outbreaks.

The WHO will look at vaccine effectiveness rates from Canada and Australia, as well as those from Europe and the United States, which have not yet been reported.

Unlike Central, the University of Hartford, which is only 10 miles away from campus, offers flu shots for all students, faculty and staff, according to UHart's Wellness Center.

Other state universities were reached out to for comment, but no response was heard.

The latest report from the Centers for Disease Control listed 17 more pediatric deaths, bringing the overall child total to 53.

All-new Hyundai Santa Fe gets previewed in first official sketches
Previous Santa Fe designs have been fairly ordinary and uninspiring and certainly didn't stand out in the burgeoning SUV market. Power is provided by a 147hp 2.0-liter engine paired to a standard six-speed automatic transmission.

"That means people who were vaccinated should not consider themselves invincible for this season", said lead researcher Dr. Danuta Skowronski, an infectious diseases expert at the BC Centre for Disease Control.

Despite this, some people refuse to get it due to misconceptions about the vaccine. Among the misconceptions about the influenza vaccine, that one is number one: the fear of catching the flu from the shot, which contains a dead virus or no virus at all and is incapable of infecting the patient.

"The flu virus can get deep in your lungs your immune system responds and you get mucus and fluids and then other bacteria grows and develops and cause pneumonia", said Williams.

"All pregnant women should make sure that they receive the flu shot".

"We want everyone to get immunized", she said. The CDC's forecast though wasn't quite as precise as Punxsutawney Phil's; the groundhog "predicted" six more weeks of winter on Friday.

"There's lots of flu occurring simultaneously across most of the USA", said Dan Jernigan, director of the CDC's influenza division. Public health officials and doctors have warned not to just assume these symptoms are that of the common cold.

"It's been the busiest I can remember for a long time", said Dr. Doug Olson, an ER doctor at Northside Hospital Forsyth, in Cumming, Georgia. However, parents know that last one isn't always feasible, but if you're a pregnant parent, there's an argument for putting the care of a sick child (or partner), if at all possible, on someone else this flu season. When flu strikes young children, people 65 and older, pregnant women, and people with certain medical conditions, it's best to contact a doctor early, since antiviral treatments have the greatest benefit if started within two days after the onset of illness.
