APNewsBreak: 80000 people died of flu last winter in US

Get Ready, Medical Folks Say Another 'Bad' Flu Season Coming

It came after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention revealed the alarming numbers from last year's flu season.

Roberts says it is time to debunk the myth flu shots can make the person receiving them sick. A contributing factor to the lower rates could have been reports early in last-year's season that found the vaccine was around 40% effective, which is on the lower end of the estimate range the CDC gives on yearly effectiveness of the vaccine.

State and other health officials say the flu season this fall and winter could produce higher numbers than previous year.

There were 900,000 hospitalizations caused by the flu. Cases increased in November and peaked in January and February.

Israel has carried out about 200 air raids in the last two years, according to its officials. Israeli military officials have previously praised its effectiveness.


"We don't know what's going to happen, but we're seeing more encouraging signs than we were early past year", Dr. Jerninga shared.

The CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices also recommended reinstating use of the FluMist vaccine this year. This exposure may result in you becoming ill with flu before the vaccine begins to protect you.

Last year, 180 children died from the flu.

"What I do know is we need to get everyone vaccinated or as many people as we possibly can to prevent the spread of the flu". There's an even steeper drop-off in vaccination coverage for teenagers 13-17 years (50 percent).

The German shot stopper has cemented himself as a first choice goalie but is not justifying that tag this season, more so after recent displays. "We didn't expect them".


If you don't get vaccinated, you could be putting other people at risk, especially the elderly, children and those with weak immune systems.

The summary of the 2017-2018 flu season was published on the website of the CDC. The season in the Southern Hemisphere has been relatively mild, a possible indicator for what to expect in the United States. The 1918 flu pandemic killed an estimated 675,000 Americans and sickened one third of the world's population. Without insurance, the cost for self-paying individuals is $25. Estimates from the past two years were just over 60 percent. Protection rates varied among different strains of the flu.

Federal health officials did not recommend the nasal spray the past two years because of low effectiveness. "It is critical that we help pregnant women not get the flu". You can also get flu shots as walk-in patients now.

These more robust vaccines are more likely to produce side effects, including pain, redness or swelling, headache, muscle ache and malaise, according to the CDC. When tissues are not readily available, cough into a sleeve, not hands.

Leaked Google Pixel 3 video shows possible features in action
Here's why I think the Pixel 3 XL , in particular, will be a big deal (and likely my next phone). What is nearly confirmed though is that Google will launch two new Pixel phones on October 9 .


William Schaffner is medical director at the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases, which organized the news conference Thursday. People with asthma and chronic congestive heart failure are also particularly at risk for complications from flu infection. "Even if people get the flu, not getting pneumonia, not having to go to the emergency room, not dying, is really a benefit".
