"Flu season is as much a part of winter in ME as skiing or snowmobiling", King said. Other regions, like parts of Europe and Hong Kong, have also reported a flurry of flu activity. They found no link between these fatalities or hospitalizations and women's decisions to get vaccinated against whooping cough or the flu during pregnancy. Those numbers have tripled since last month. For people at high risk of severe complications who become sick with influenza-like illness, it is recommended they talk to their healthcare provider about being evaluated for antiviral medications. The median age of those in the study was 77. "The vaccine may also reduce the severity of symptoms if you catch the flu in spite of being vaccinated, and it is not too late to get the vaccine". Monroe County has seen 3,715 confirmed cases of influenza so far this season. The vaccine efficacy estimates for Influenza A (H3N2) are 25 percent; for Influenza A (H1N1) are 67 percent; and for Influenza B the rates are 42 percent.
