CDC: Flu 'Widespread' In 43 States

CDC: Flu 'Widespread' In 43 States

The injectable flu vaccine for those under 65 years of age is quadrivalent, which means it contains four influenza strains; two influenza A and two influenza B strains.

There were also three confirmed flu deaths, bringing the total deaths this flu season to 16.

14,000 new cases are popping up a week and 20 children have died, five alone in the last week of January.

The woman was a resident of a long-term care facility, according to the Delaware Division of Public Health. Almost every state is reporting widespread influenza.

Although the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) does not track adult flu deaths nationally, the National Center for Health Statistics and the 122 Cities Mortality Reporting System process death certificate data to rank certain weeks of the year as "elevated" for flu-related deaths and also as above or below the "epidemic threshold".

In 2014-15, the annual flu season resulted in 149 hospitalized cases in Pueblo - a 10-year high, according to the health department.

Flu activity in SC is high and widespread right now.

In a release, officials reported the death of a 74-year-old Sussex County woman who was diagnosed with the flu, as well as other underlying health conditions.

"We've got plenty of flu season left, we have plenty of time to protect more kids".

"It's been quiet, but we could see an increase", Allen said.

"If you do get the flu, taking antiviral medication as prescribed by a doctor can lessen symptoms and shorten the time you are sick", said Tennessee Immunization Program Director Kelly Moore, MD.

The Agency is urging everyone six months old and older to get vaccinated against the flu.

"People can spread the flu for up to 24 hours before they start to show symptoms, and they can continue to be contagious for a full week after the onset of symptoms- sometimes even longer with children", Stanley said. "Other preventive measures include keeping your hands away from your face, sneezing/coughing into your elbow and staying home when you do not feel well, especially if you have a fever", stated Cunningham. Called FluMist, this flu nasal form is made from a weakened flu virus form, unlike traditional shots using dead virus.
