  • Flu vaccine doing relatively good job this year, officials say

Less individuals have looked for outpatient care or have been hospitalized for influenza like ailments this season, the CDC said in a report summarizing influenza action from September 30 to February 2.

This flu season is expected to continue for several more weeks, probably well into March, Brammer noted. But it may be waning, Brammer said, as the level of influenza A H3N2 has increased.

"The vaccine is not flawless, but it remains an extremely effective and life-saving public health tool.We all must do our part to protect ourselves and our neighbors, while looking out for the most vulnerable members of our society - and that begins by getting the flu shot", concluded Dr.

For children ages 6 months to 17 years, overall adjusted vaccine effectiveness was 61% (95% CI 44%-73%), the authors wrote in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. The flu vaccine's effectiveness rate is estimated between 30 to 60 percent.

Also, he said today's report underscores the need for better flu vaccines.

Overall vaccine effectiveness (VE) for the flu shot is 47% for the current season, with 46% effectiveness against this year's dominant strain, influenza A (H1N1) pdm09, researchers found.

One underrated benefit of the vaccine is that even if you do get sick, your flu will likely be milder than if you haven't been vaccinated.

The Hellenic Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (HCDCP) announced on Thursday that the flu virus has claimed a total of 56 lives. During the 2017-18 season, vaccination averted an estimated 7.1 million illnesses, 3.7 million medical visits, 109,000 influenza-associated hospitalizations, and 8,000 influenza-associated deaths.

Studies show that vaccination reduces the risk of influenza-related deaths in children; 80% of the children in the United States who died from flu last season were unvaccinated.

So far, protection against H1N1 looks comparable to past year, he said.

That's why she's urging anyone who hasn't yet been vaccinated to get a flu shot.

The reason for that is that milder H1N1 strains of the influenza virus have dominated in most of the country, with H3N2, a strain that causes more severe illness that ran rampant last winter, predominating in southeastern areas. The CDC recommends flu shots for almost every American older than six months of age, with few exceptions.

Flu cases jumped to 1.5 million since October 1, 2018, with over 186,000 flu-related hospitalizations and more than 7.2 million flu medical visits, as per CDC estimates. If you feel yourself becoming sick, do not forget to cover your mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing, and if you are sick, stay home if possible.
