Scientists Working On Better Flu Vaccine For Dogs

Influenza season is at its peak nationwide and Florida is no exception. That’s obvious on the map at the Centers for Disease Control website

There's no doubt that it's a good idea to get the flu vaccine while breastfeeding, but before choosing between the injection and the nasal spray, talk to your doctor and discuss the pros and cons of each. Also, CDC reported five additional flu-associated pediatric deaths for the 2016-2017 season.

"We are seeing quite a few people who have had the flu shot and are positive for influenza", Dr. Kaminski said.

Logan Boss, spokesman for the Northwest Georgia Public Health District, said the flu is widespread across the state right now.

Overall, this flu season has kept hospitals busier than previous year.

If possible, try to avoid close contact with sick people. Three of the deaths were 65 years old and older, and the fourth patient was in the 50 to 64 age group.

Health officials recommend everyone 6 months and older receive a flu shot every year. Officials have now confirmed 34 flu-related deaths in children this season.

Nationally, 34 children have died from flu this season, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Flu seasons have very typical characteristics. "(A total of) 33,271 influenza cases and 51 flu-related fatalities have been reported to the Department of Health so far this season".

"The main reason adult flu deaths aren't reported is that seasonal flu may lead to death from other causes, such as pneumonia, congestive heart failure or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease", Modie said in an email. And now researchers are working on improving the vaccine that could protect them from the flu. "Headache, fevers, chills, body aches, cough, sneezing, soar throat, sometimes nausea and vomiting". People who haven't yet received a flu shot, which reduces the risk of severe complications, should still do so, he added.

Frequent hand washing using warm soapy water.

Flannery also stressed the importance of seeking treatment if you come down with the flu, explaining "Antivirals shouldn't be withheld pending influenza testing or based on whether you were vaccinated or not".
