  • Flu cases starting to surge, with kids and teens especially vulnerable: doctors

Peak flu season is starting now, and doctors say to get ready for a potentially extended season. Data suggests that more people got vaccinated earlier this year than they did last year, perhaps motivated by memories of the prior season.

The flu spreads "mainly by droplets made when people with flu cough, sneeze or talk".

Flu-like illnesses are trending above the county's historical five-year average. "In the last week or so we've started to see increases, similar to what we're seeing nationally. This year, the predominant strain we're seeing is H1N1", Shahab said.

Health officials are urging residents to get a flu vaccine, as it is the best way to protect yourself against the potentially unsafe virus.

"While most people will get better themselves from flu, anyone who is concerned about their condition should telephone their GP or an out of hours medical service so they can arrange to be treated in a way that does not put others at risk". In the Interior Health region, 50 children under the age of 10 had been hospitalized up to the end of December, while in 2015-16, just eight were hospitalized throughout the entire flu season.

However, this year's flu vaccine is a good match for circulating strains and the vaccine is the best way to protect yourself from getting the flu. Bankole also said that after the 2009 outbreak of H1N1, people developed improved natural immunity to the virus, which means symptoms tend to be milder even for people who contract the flu.

Note to readers: This is a corrected story. Complications associated with the virus can lead to hospitalization or death, especially for seniors, young children and people with compromised immune systems, Hafiz said. It also misstated the percentage of children that make up B.C.'s population.
