  • Health officials say the flu has become widespread in Utah

Medical Health Officer Martin Lavoie says with more people getting the flu, they expect more people to pack into emergency rooms on top of what they already have to deal with.

"This update summarises recent advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) and the latest update in the Green Book on adjuvanted trivalent flu vaccine that can support your decisions on optimal choice of influenza vaccine for the 2018/19 season".

OH is now reporting 2,104 flu-associated hospitalizations for the 2017-18 flu season, compared to 369 at this same time past year.

The Joint Committee on Vaccinations and Immunisations recommended the switch to an adjuvanted vaccine in over-65s previous year, but recommended any change should start with those over 75.

"Many people feel that all of the available vaccines for influenza in the United States can actually cause the flu", he said.

"We've seen a 61 percent increase this week over the last week". The majority of cases have been from adults ages 65 and above.

Flu activity in the US usually peaks around February.

Experts say it is also possible that this year's dominant strain, H3N2, is more resistant to treatment than some others.

"Sometimes, the variation doesn't go the way we think it's going to", explained Rogers, "so it doesn't offer as much of a protection as we would like". More than 2,100 people have been hospitalized for flu statewide, according to state health officials.

This decision was made because the current flu shot isn't working for the elderly, reports the NHS.

According to ODH, the start of this year's flu season in OH appears to be similar to the start of the 2014-2015 fly season when there were 50 more hospitalizations on the last week of the year.

"It's still not too late to get your flu shot", Suffoletto said. He said things will likely get worse before improving.

"If you have symptoms of the flu, stay home", Rogers stressed.

Frequent hand-washing to avoid spreading germs.
