It's that time of year again: Flu Season!

The latest data is from the week ending in December 2nd, though new data is expected out soon. "February is usually the peak season for numbers to grow". Earlier the experts said that the flu-related diseases claim around 250 to 500 thousand lives each year, but now the same experts state that the number of deaths caused by respiratory ailments is actually around 650,000.

The state Health Department says influenza is now prevalent in ny state, which means health care workers who haven't had a flu shot must wear procedural masks around patients.

"This work adds to a growing global understanding of the burden of influenza and populations at highest risk", said Danielle Iuliano, a CDC researcher and the study's lead author. They then used computer modeling to develop estimates for flu-linked deaths, excluding pandemics, in 185 countries.

Quinlisk continued: "It may not stop every sniffle, but if you're someone who wants to not get seriously ill, doesn't want to end up in the hospital and certainly doesn't want to die, this is a good vaccine to get and to be honest, about the only vaccine we have right now for the flu".

"Even in years when the vaccine effectiveness isn't as high, the vaccine still offers better protection than nothing", she said. The "Flu Express" will enable people to and receive the flu vaccine while waiting in their vehicle, without having to get out, weather permitting.

"We ask that individuals not come to the hospital to visit patients if they have any cold or flu-like symptoms including cough, sore throat, headache and/or fever. As a community, we need to protect the vulnerable - those at high risk for developing flu-related complications - among us". Shots are available through area health care providers and most pharmacies. As of November 25, a total of 142 people tested positive for the flu, up from 96 the week before, according tto the state Department of Public Health. Influenza A accounted for 31 of those cases, and there were two reported cases of Influenza B.
