Two More Flu Deaths Bring Total to Seven in Washoe County

Eastern Health

The current flu vaccine appears to be about 30 percent effective against this year's circulating virus strains, contradicting widespread reports based on Australia's recent flu season that suggested the vaccine was only about 10 percent effective, Jernigan said.

The Georgia Department of Public Health is urging anyone in Georgia that has not gotten a flu shot to get one after it says the organization has confirmed four flu-related deaths in the state.

The review included people over the age of 65, McDowell said.

While it is showing up a little earlier than other years, Influenza B often produces a milder illness compared to strains of Influenza A, and is covered by this year's flu vaccine.

Werker, Deputy Chief Medical Health Officer, says the flu can take very many forms during the flu season.

Officials with Audubon County Memorial Hospital and Clinics say that while no flu related deaths have occurred in Audubon County, flu cases are on the rise and are expected to peak in February or March.

"From a public health point of view it is very hard to contain flu", Dr. Bettina Fries, from Stony Brook University Hospital, told WCBS 880's Sophia Hall.

In Santa Barbara County, six people have died in the past two weeks, according to the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department. "There's nearly no area in the county that's seen no influenza activity at this point".

"Flu is everywhere in the U.S. right now", Dr. Daniel Jernigan, director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's influenza division, said during a media briefing Friday.

"When you're dealing with something like that, you don't want it to spread", Bowman said.

Flu vaccination is the most effective protection against flu and since the flu season typically runs until late spring, it is not too late to get vaccinated.

For those at high risk of serious flu complications, getting vaccinated is especially important. In terms of the numbers, we are having a slight increase this week.

Flu activity varies across the state. The number of people seeing health care professionals because of influenza-like illnesses-defined as a fever over 100 degrees Fahrenheit with a cough or a sore throat-is almost double as many as previous year.
