During the two to four weeks after the flu, he said, older people face an increased risk of heart attack and stroke. The 2017-2018 season was the first to be classified as "high severity".

It eclipses the estimates for every flu season going back to the winter of 1976-1977. Severity is based on flu activity, hospitalizations, and deaths from pneumonia or influenza, explained Nordlund.

"The damage continues even after one recover from the acute respiratory illness", Dr. Schaffner said. Acute influenza initiates a "whole-body inflammatory reaction". "It can affect blood vessels in the brain".

"We should all know by now that the flu is unpredictable", said Dr.

"I think that my generation is a little bit more into holistic techniques and medications right now", said Ashley Vicari, 25, who says getting a flu vaccine is not as important to her and her friends.

How Does Last Year's Flu Season Compare to Previous Years? The flu virus changes from year to year, and this year's vaccine protects against the flu viruses that are expected to cause the most illness this flu season. However, its effectiveness depends on the public - last year, 35 percent of the state's population received a vaccine, he said.

Many question, "Do I have the flu or do I simply have a cold?" Though the vaccine doesn't provide flawless protection from the flu, "give [it] credit for softening the blow", Dr. William Schaffner, the medical director of the NFID, said during the briefing. It was not previously available because there were some concerns about how effective it is.

CDC recommends that people be vaccinated anytime between now and the end of October. "So it is never too late to get the flu shot".

The CDC also reported a record-breaking number of pediatric deaths from the flu - 180 kids. This is the case for recombinant influenza vaccines.

"That's huge", Dr, William Schaffer, a vaccine expert at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, told the AP. Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth. "After acute flu, recovery may not be complete". "Whenever friends come by, I ask them are you vaccinated".

Public Health England (PHE) is urging parents to take up the offer of a free childhood flu vaccination. The CDC also identified that the Influenza A (H3N2) virus was the most common type of flu during the 2017-2018 season. "It's their social responsibility to get vaccinated".

Contrary to popular belief, the flu vaccine cannot cause the flu. The first and most important step in preventing flu is to get a flu vaccination each year. Neither type of vaccination can infect you with the flu.

Places in the county offering flu shots include: Hy-Vee Pharmacy, 1217 South Main; the Nodaway County Health Center, 2416 South Main; Rogers Pharmacy, 125 East South Avenue; SSM Health-St. Rarely, people who receive the flu shot experience muscle pain, a slight fever, and feelings of weakness or discomfort.
