Flu On The Rise In Tri

State department of health says one in seven doctor visits in Louisiana is for flu

The state has confirmed 79 cases of the flu as of December 9, a 33-person increase from the previous week, according to a Delaware Division of Public Health flu surveillance report.

Experts expect the number of patients with flu-like symptoms in IL to increase within the next week, Hafiz said.

Starting out 2017, Pennsylvania peaked at almost 8,000 cases in the state.

"Flu is picking up and picking up early", Daniel Jernigan, director of the influenza division at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said in an article for the Washington Post.

Doctors are warning flu season could peak next week.

According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, the state has reached widespread status, meaning cases of the flu have been confirmed in pretty much every community across the state.

The flu doesn't discriminate as to who it will infect, which is why it's important to make sure your workforce is prepared for flu season - which is now in full force. Most of the reported flu cases were in Kingman, especially during the holidays.

It takes two weeks for your body to develop immunity to the virus after you get the flu shot.

Police say 56-year-old Eddie Blair was killed in the shooting, and his body was found in a backyard adjacent to the home. According to police, officers responded to the 100 block of Chapman Street at 10:25 a.m.in response to shots fired.

"There's still a benefit to getting vaccinated because if you do get the flu, your symptoms will be milder", Troisi said.

"The flu vaccine has to be formulated months in advance in order to have it ready".

Some say this years vaccine may be to blame for because of its ten percent effective rate. Still, we won't really know how effective this year's shot is until the flu season has actually passed.

Influenza season is now widespread in California, including Fresno.

One preventative step is trying to avoid close contact with people who are sick if possible.

"This season, influenza A viruses have been most commonly identified, with influenza A (H3N2) viruses predominating", she wrote.

"Many healthy people that get the flu say it feels like they have been hit by a train", Mallory Swartzentruber, the public health educator for the Daviess County Health Department, said.

Many of those cases are in people who did get the flu vaccine. However, those in high-risk groups like the elderly or the very very young might need to see the doctor and a prescription.
