Flu season off to an early - and nasty - start

Flu season off to an early - and nasty - start

The four most deadly flu seasons of the last 10 years - in the winters of 2003-2004, 2007-2008, 2012-2013, and 2014-15 - were H3N2 seasons, each with a particular version of that flu type.

Since Sept. 1, 40 per cent of the influenza cases were in the 20- to 64-year-old category, 30 per cent were seniors, 20 per cent were school age children and 10 per cent were preschool age. Patel said that looking back now, there were two major factors that led to the scare. "The other one was laying on the table shaking", Izaddoost said. "The Centers for Disease Control can not catch each and every flu strain, and this one was unknown at the time".

"It's unusual for the same strain to go around for a second year", Shahab said. This report also includes granular analysis of the market share, geographic regions and revenue forecasts and of the North America Flu Vaccine market.

Influenza activity is on the rise across the United States, with several influenza activity indicators higher than what is typically seen for this time of year, according to a recently-published CDC Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. He stated that people are more likely to develop the flu during the holidays because this is a time when many people get together with their families. And often, by then, more than one-third of those admissions will test positive for the flu.

This flu season is beginning earlier than the previous couple of years, which had unusually late starts.

Twenty-three flu cases were reported to the Yakima Health District in the last week alone.

However, doctors insist we can not underestimate the importance of "herd immunity", and that the shot may be more effective as lessening illness in those who do get sick.

Flu can be a very unpleasant illness in children causing fever, stuffy nose dry cough, sore throat, aching muscles and joints and extreme tiredness.

He recommends people speak with their doctors, visit the Health Department's Community Health Center, 1106 Neal Ave.in Joliet (815-727-8670); or visit the Health Department's Immunization Clinic, 501 Ella Ave.in Joliet (815-740-8143) during walk-in hours.
