  • Less effective flu shot helping kick up cases this season

The South, Midwest, Southwest and West have been especially hard hit, as per the U.S. Communities for Disease Control and Prevention. However, everyone is susceptible.

Carrie Delfs, Clinical Services Division Manager of the Shawnee County Health Department, provided KSNT News a graph that shows the percent of outpatient visits for influenza-like illness.

Who wants to get the flu?

Virtually no region of the country has been spared, as an imperfect vaccine and a long bout of cold, wintry weather are conspiring to turn this flu season into a severe one. Generally, the flu season happens around February, but it can go up from October to April. "You have children". Yes, and they've never had one either. The strain is included in this year's flu vaccine.

Can you catch the flu from the vaccine? Desoky explained that a low-grade fever is a side effect in only 1-2% of the those vaccinated; these tiny percentages are still only side effects, it is not the flu from the vaccine. "You are going to see more spread and more disease, and that's what's happening". "I urge Hoosiers who haven't received a flu shot yet to do so". Since it takes about two weeks for the vaccine to cause an adequate immune response to protect you, if you haven't gotten yours already, don't delay.

In most cases, with insurance, there is no co-pay, including TriCare. "If you're not sure if you're eligible, you can pay for it at a High Street pharmacy". Cost varies at each location listed below.

The antibody might be less compelling against H3N2 strains since it's fabricated in chicken eggs, which some current research has demonstrated communicate with H3 strains, making them less like the coursing strain and in this manner less successful.

IN officials are urging Hoosiers to get their flu shots and take other precautions amid the surge in flu-related illnesses and deaths.

Getting the shot does not guarantee you will not get the flu, but it does reduce your chances.

"The "Aussie flu", H3N2, is the same strain that was circulating past year and is not unusual", she added. In fact, in my hospital, in my emergency department, we're seeing records of patient volumes set nearly every day. For hours and availability, best to call ahead (phone numbers and addresses at conclusion of article). She said they count illness of a fever of 100 or greater and a cough and/or sore throat.

Furthermore, anyone with flu is advised to stay away from visiting anyone in hospital or anyone ill at home.

In the West, emergency rooms in California and Arizona are packed with people struck by the flu, and drugs that ease the illness are in short supply as doctors struggle with a sharp spike in cases.

"Vaccination's still very important, and the best step we can take to prevent, not only you from getting the flu, but even if you do get the flu, the severity of the symptoms are much less".
