CDC: Flu 'widespread' in Pennsylvania

And, as previously, the CDC makes the compelling case the more people who get vaccinated, the more people who will be protected from flu. DHS officials say the season usually hits later in Jan, Feb and March. "So if you've been exposed to the flu and you start coming down with symptoms, then get to your health care professional and get a prescription".

For more information about Arizona influenza visit the ADHS website. That is based on Australia's recent flu season. From a Centers for Disease Control report, only 45.6 percent of the overall population got their flu shots during the 2015-16 season.

Statistically speaking, some people will come down with the flu shortly after getting the flu shot - but, again, the illness isn't caused by the vaccine itself.

McGeer says there are a number of influenza strains in competition. While getting a yearly vaccine may seem like a time-consuming con for some, flu viruses evolve and change every year, thus making the yearly shot your best chance at eluding the new strains of flu virus in the next season.

Jairam Thakur to be new Himachal CM
Central observers had submitted a report after meeting state leaders and RSS leadership in Shimla earlier this week. Mr Thakur was also the minister of rural development and panchayati raj from 2007-2012.


H3N2 was the most common strain seen in Australia and the vaccine used there has a similar composition to the one being now used in the U.S. In previous years, the effectiveness rates of flu shots has been between 40 to 60 percent.

"The seasonal influenza [flu] vaccine costs of $10.00 per shot [for both adults and children aged 3 and up]". The good news here is you can still benefit from the flu shot, and possibly have less severe symptoms and overall case even if you do contract a different strain of the flu given the immunisation protections gotten through the shot. Everyone age six months or older is urged to receive the flu vaccine. Individuals with weak immune systems and healthy individuals are equally likely to catch the flu virus. The overall idea is to practice good health habits.

And clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs like the flu.

It's too late to get vaccinated. Additionally, a map from the CDC shows that there is widespread flu activity in 23 states across the country. Since the vaccination can take up to two weeks to build up full immunity, now is prime time for prevention with the holidays in full swing.
