Influenza: 80,000 people died from flu last season according to CDC estimates

Brunswick County Health Services will begin offering flu vaccines on Oct. 1

He said that 80,000 deaths is more than double the number expected in a typical "bad" flu season.

"We've got to try to do something about the messaging", said William Schaffner, medical director of the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases and an infectious diseases professor at Vanderbilt University. Inflammation can affect blood vessels to the heart and the brain and increase the risk of heart attack and stroke in the two to four weeks following recovery from the disease, he said.

Opportunities for free flu vaccines are plentiful in Umatilla County after the flu killed an estimated 80,000 people in the United States previous year.

A poll by Insights West, on behalf of London Drugs, shows 78% of British Columbians think it is important to get a flu shot.

The new analysis found large regional variations in children's flu vaccine coverage, from a low of 43.2% in Wyoming to a high of 76.2% in Rhode Island.

The Jefferson County Health Unit held its annual mass flu shot clinic from 8:30 4:30 p.m. Thursday to provide Jefferson County residents with free flu vaccinations. "So it was a bad year as far as flu seasons go", Priest said. Adams said that some effectiveness provided by taking the vaccine was better than no protection at all.

A consent form must be completed for every individual receiving the flu shot.

Last year, 180 children died from the flu.

A few flu prevention practices recommend washing hands regularly and making sure all members of a family are vaccinated.

As flu season approaches, hard numbers on how many people died from the flu in 2017 have come in.

"What is it that old and frail people often fear the most?".

Seasonal flu outbreaks can happen as early as October, but flu activity peaks between December and February, although activity can last as late as May. The previous high for regular flu season deaths was 56,000. "Flu can knock down that first domino of progressive decline, progressive disability".

Contrary to popular belief, the flu vaccine cannot cause the flu. Neither type of vaccination can infect you with the flu.

One senior was glad to get her vaccine today, but every year half of Americans don't. It is a contagious respiratory illness, believed to be spread by droplets from coughing, sneezing or talking, which can land in the mouths or noses of nearby people.
