Across the country the tested samples received by the labs "Flu-A" is the predominant subtype detected. There have been almost 200 lab-confirmed cases of influenza as of February 2, the most since 2009.

It takes two weeks, after receiving the vaccine, for the body to produce antibodies that provide protection against the virus, according to the CDC. There are several strains now circulating so somebody could potentially get the flu several times.

"We have not hit our peak yet, unfortunately", CDC spokeswoman Kristen Nordlund said. If you have flu symptoms, contact your health care provider to seek advice. There have been no supply shortages reported. In fact, it is known to be a 50-year-old circulating disease, the "Hong Kong Flu", but this season it reached its deathly potential.

She credits both the vaccine and her extra efforts with staying well this flu season. By the end of the 2009 flu season, 148 pediatric cases had the same outcome.

Influenza cases have increased nationwide in recent weeks.

Influenza can cause mild to severe illness and sometimes require hospitalization.

The company also extended support for Windows 10 Enterprise and Education editions 1607, 1703 and 1709 by another six months. It seems organizations are still having problems adjusting to Microsoft's faster release cycles with Windows 10.

Smith also said that the number of deaths likely will get much higher before the season is over. Health officials are encouraging people to get a flu shot.

Health officials don't track adult deaths as closely as childhood fatalities, but they say typically between 100 and 200 adults die from influenza complications every year in Minnesota.

Preventative measures to stay healthy include getting a flu shot, washing hands, disinfecting surfaces, covering coughs and sneezes and staying home if sick. "I think this year we're up to about 250 flu shots". "They put things in their mouths, they spread thing just from their hands to touching other kids, sneezing on them, coughing on them", added Wallerius. This will help prevent spreading the illness to others.

What should I do if I get sick? And wash them right: scrub your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

In Pensacola, Florida, an ER nurse's Facebook rant after a 12-hour shift got attention this week, with her venting about people not doing enough to stop the spread of germs. Additionally, if a child appears to be improving and suddenly worsens could be showing signs of a secondary bacterial infection. It is recommended they take an antiviral medication as soon as possible. During the 2016-17 flu season, Kentucky recorded 76 deaths.

Health departments in several southeast Georgia counties, including Camden and Glynn, will offer free flu shots from 8 a.m.to 3 p.m. Friday to those ages 3 and older who do not have insurance, the Georgia Department of Public Health said.
