Flu cases surge in Arizona

2018 flu season appears to hit deadly peak

'Atypical' flu season causing outbreaks at care homes

Health officials said one strain, Influenza A H3N2, is why flu season seems more severe this year.

There were seven pediatric flu deaths last week, bringing the total to 20 for the flu season, the CDC said.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and TDH recommend a yearly flu vaccine for everyone aged six months and older. Last week, just over 1,300 cases.

"Every day flu season feels like it's lasting a little longer", Grey said. Cleaning and disinfecting surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs like the flu can help slow the spread of influenza.

If you have not received a flu shot yet, it's not too late. "The vaccine is it well matched for it, so unfortunately I think the vaccine is good to get it better than nothing so it is probably not going to be as effective as we had hoped", said Dr. Cynthia Snider, an infectious disease with Cone Health.

Flu‐like symptoms include: fever, cough, sore throat, runny/stuffy nose, muscle aches, chills and fatigue.

"The most common flu strain identified in Kentucky and in the 36 deaths is Influenza A, added Department for Public Health's State Epidemiologist, Dr. Jonathan Ballard".

Public health officials continued to press the public to get flu shots, saying it wasn't too late, and that the vaccine offered ideal protection against three of the four strains.

One child was confirmed to have died of the flu during the last week of 2017.

The vaccine may be less effective against H3N2 strains because it's manufactured in chicken eggs, which some recent research has shown interact with H3 strains, making them less like the circulating strain and therefore less effective.

The number of cases in Saskatchewan is up 80 percent from past year, something Werker says should not worry people in the province. But local health departments that do count them are reporting that more people have died. But doctors still insist you should get the flu vaccine. H3N2 is associated with more severe illness, especially among children and the elderly. Both Garcia and Grey still recommend getting the flu vaccine because it may reduce the symptoms and the duration of the flu. The flu can lead to complications like pneumonia, dehydration and worsening of chronic medical conditions.

Flu season is about to hit its peak, and while flu cases are spiking across the country, the case is not the same in Nova Scotia.
