This could be a bad flu season

Effectiveness of flu shot Is 60% -- in a good year

Flu Cases on the Rise

The new flu season is slowly arriving, and Will County Health Department epidemiology and infectious disease coordinator Dr. Alpesh Patel said that so far there are few surprises.

According to the CDC, previous year in 2016, only 41.6 percent of people in Louisiana got a flu vaccine.

Dr. Martinello says the flu shot may not be as effective as in years past, but getting it minimizes the severity of the symptoms.

Health officials like Maggie Hall, with the Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County, say that could be an early indication of a more severe influenza season early next year. This is why everyone needs a flu vaccine every season. "Typically, we don't see flu starting to arrive in Pima County until February or March".

"They have a less tropical climate, one that's more like ours", Patel said in a news release.

Padmavati for selective eyes, why?: House panel
MPs CP Joshi and M Birla had approached the parliamentary panel headed by Anurag Thakur to ensure that the movie is not released. According to sources, Virendra Kashyap, BJP MP from Shimla, asked Bhansali if he had created the controversy for publicity.

"We're expecting a fairly severe flu season", said Swift.

'Immunization programs should work with community leaders to promote vaccination, ensure all members have access to flu vaccination, and ensure that all members understand the importance of flu vaccination in preventing disease, ' the authors said.

What's more, American vaccine manufacturers look at the strain hitting Australia when producing the vaccines for the US, but that strain can mutate within the six to eight months the USA industry needs to produce the vaccines. Since Oct. 1, Mountain States hospitals have recorded 80 positive flu cases.

"Right now we still need to encourage everyone who has not received a flu vaccine to get it, and to get it as soon as possible because we are seeing high activity levels of flu like illnesses in Louisiana", Lopez urged. "Generally, we do know that influenza and other illnesses are more common in those who are school age and people who are out and about more".

That's just one reason scientists have been trying to come up with a universal flu vaccine for years now.

Warm weather continues, but wind and rain are on the way
Office meteorologist Charles Powell also warned temperatures could drop even lower than last week as northerly gales blast the UK. Monday is expected to be sunny, with a high temperature in the upper 40s, according to the National Weather Service .

Roberts said it is too early to tell if the flu vaccine is working but said that even a little protection helps in the long run.

Australia's most recent flu season - which typically sets a pattern for what the USA will face - was particularly rough and the flu vaccine was only 10 percent effective there.

There are many varieties of the flu vaccine.

So to verify, it is still unknown how effective the vaccine will be in the USA, but it will help.

In addition to getting the vaccine, the CDC recommends avoiding close contact with sick people, washing your hands often with soap and water and covering your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze.
