Flu Season Has Kicked In... Here's How to Protect Yourself

The risk of developing complications is higher in those who are over the age of 65 or those who have chronic medical conditions like heart disease and asthma, according to the CDC.

Ottawa, in contrast, was seeing a lower rate of influenza overall and among children than the national rates as of the end of the year (the most recent numbers). Since September, Ottawa Public Health has recorded 77 lab-confirmed cases of the flu, similar to the amount seen at the same time a year ago.

The Public Health Agency of Canada reports that 414 children under the age of 16 had to be hospitalized due to influenza across Canada since September, including 71 who had to be admitted to the ICU.

The timing of seasonal flu outbreaks vary and can begin as early as late October.

While last season's vaccine turned out to be a poor match for the circulating strains - especially for the prevailing H3N2 type - the 2018-2019 flu shot is expected to be far more effective in preventing the infectious disease. "We continue to recommend community members get their flu shot".

Flu vaccine critics, including naturopathy practitioners, argue that mercury, detergents and other additives sometimes packed into the shots can do more harm than good.

Experts say it takes about two weeks to build up immunity against the virus after getting vaccinated. It also misstated the percentage of children that make up B.C.'s population.
