Flu Shot Numbers Show Increase Over Last Year: Haggie

Government moved away from offering flu shots free of charge at the doctor's office through MCP, and instead offered community clinics this year to administer the vaccine. This means that 13 of the 17 regions of the commonwealth had confirmed flu cases in the last reporting week, which ended December 30. ACMC, which participates in the Minnesota Department of Health influenza surveillance program, experienced "a really big spike" in influenza-like illness right after the holidays, Lesteberg said.

"The most important thing people can do to help our family and loved ones is to get the vaccination rates up", Teacutter said. Despite vaccination being a third as effective compared to prior years and it is taking two weeks before it is effective, the California Department of Public Health website states it is "not too late to get a vaccination".

"In the midst of a troubling increase in flu hospitalizations, I strongly urge all CT residents to do not forget to get their flu shot", said Gov. Dannel P. Malloy in a statement Friday.

Health Minister John Haggie says a potentially less-than-perfect flu vaccine doesn't mean people should skip their flu vaccine this year.

John Haggie told CBC's On the Go on Thursday that since the start of flu clinics in October, 109,783 vaccines have been administered, compared with 106,077 over the entire flu season previous year.

They said all eight counties in the state have seen an increase in flu activity over the past two weeks.

While there have been reports the vaccine has been less effective than normal this year, Chambers said it can still help even if the vaccine was designed for a different strain.

Flu vaccines are available at the health department and at many healthcare providers, urgent care facilities and pharmacies.

And just as she and her colleagues at Stony Brook are seeing an increase in H3N2 cases of the flu, experts elsewhere on Long Island are seeing a rise in the number of infections attributed to that strain.

"It's not too late to get your flu shot". The Department of Health says that's the best way to prevent it.

ACMC still has an adequate amount of vaccine for established patients who haven't had their annual flu shot yet. "You feel like you've been run over by a truck", said Cartter. "People hate to miss work. But if your body is telling you to rest, you should probably do that".

Symptoms of flu tend to come on suddenly.

A total of 456 patients have been hospitalized with laboratory-confirmed flu between August 27, 2017, and January 6. Persons who develop flu symptoms should seek medical advice to determine if they should be treated with an antiviral drug, which could shorten the course of the illness or reduce its severity.
