In the first week of January, there were 1,750 new confirmed flu-associated hospitalizations in OH compared to 925 the week before.

Flu season begins in October, and typically peaks between December and February.

The Ghana Health Service (GHS) says the outbreak of the Influenza-A H1N1 that occurred at the Kumasi Academy Senior High School has ended.

The victim was a 4-year-old boy from Montgomery County.

Forty-six states now have widespread flu activity.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has great resources to help people better understand the flu, she added.

"All this getting together closely over the holidays and now locked in because of the cold and the snow, that will enhance the transmission of flu", said Dr. William Schaffner, professor of preventive medicine at Vanderbilt University.

Rodriguez said that even if the vaccine is weak this year, vaccinating is still the most important thing county residents can do to avoid getting sick and mitigate the illness if they do get sick.

Regardless of current gripes or criticism you might hear regarding the effectiveness of the flu vaccine, get a shot anyway.

As News 18 has previously reported, state health officials say the number of flu-related deaths in IN is now at 25. "There are reports that the vaccine is only 10 percent effective this year, but it's really too early to tell".

However, "influenza is a very serious illness, so if you're at high risk or have symptoms such as difficulty breathing, chest pain, dizziness, confusion, persistent vomiting, can not drink fluids, or have flu-like symptoms that improve but then return with fever or worse cough, seek emergency medical care immediately", said Dr. Cara Christ, director of the Department of Health Services. A study also done on flu vaccination said that it can significantly reduce a child's risk of dying from influenza. "If you are sick, please stay home to prevent further spread of the virus". OH does not have a flu shot shortage.

The department advised people to seek emergency care only if they are at high risk for complications or experiencing severe symptoms.

Adult flu deaths are not reported to local health departments by Texas law.

Public health officials are also urging those who are sick to stay home, and for employers to allow workers to take days away when they're ill.
