CDC warns consumers about upcoming flu season

  • Child getting flu shot

Under blue skies and a blazing sun with temperatures getting up to 89 degrees, the DeKalb County Board of Health set up a drive-thru flu vaccination clinic Friday outside the Northlake Mall.

The campaign, running across East Lancashire, is urging parents/guardians/carers to vaccinate their children against flu.

Sure, it may still feel like summer. This season's flu vaccine is already being sold at the drug stores in the recent weeks.

It's still early in flu season, but the CDC is already warning people this could be another particularly nasty one.

It is advised to get flu vaccines before flu begins spreading in the community.

Myth #5 - I never get the flu, I shouldn't bother getting the shot. They cost $35 for standard vaccines, and $65 for high-dose vaccines for people 65 and older. They stress the most important thing is to just get vaccinated. The CDC says about 80 percent of those children did not get the vaccination.

Last year's "high severity" flu season may be inspiring more Americans to get themselves and their families vaccinated against the flu in 2018.

In fact, in 2016 to 2017, the flu vaccine prevented 5.3 million flu illnesses, 2.6 million flu-related medical visits, and 85,000 flu-related hospitalizations.

PHE is in particular encouraging pregnant women; no matter how many weeks along they are, to get their vaccine from their GP, pharmacist or midwife this winter to protect them and their baby.

Each year, on average, 5 percent to 20 percent of the US population gets the flu, tens of thousands are hospitalized and thousands die from flu-related illness. This costs an estimated $10.4 billion a year in direct medical expenses and an additional $16.3 billion in lost earnings annually, according to the CDC. There were also 150 deaths, including five children, in Georgia.

Health officials estimate that the number of people hospitalized with flu symptoms topped 700,000 last season, which is considered a massive outbreak.

Dr Will Welfare, Consultant in Health Protection at PHE North West, said: "Our figures show that flu is not to be underestimated - every winter the virus makes hundreds of people seriously ill in the North West".

Often marketed as the less painful option for children, the AAP doesn't recommend the nasal spray over the traditional flu shot.

For children, the NHS use the nasal spray vaccine because it protects them better, for longer, and is easier and more comfortable for children than the injection.The flu virus enters the body through the nose and mouth so the vaccination spray is given through the nose so it mimics the flu virus and results in a better immune response than an injected vaccine. Flu activity tends to pick up in October and November, and usually peaks between December and February. About 2,000 US adults were surveyed.

"... Young children are really susceptible, anyone under the age of 18, actually, is more susceptible".
