Pima County flu cases 7x what they were this time previous year

Pima County flu cases 7x what they were this time previous year

On average, past flu vaccines have been about 42 percent effective, though that number can range anywhere from 10 to 60 percent in a given year. How many people get the flu in any given year depends in part on the effectiveness of the vaccine.

The Health District keeps a list online of pharmacy and drugstore locations where flu shots are available. This may be why so many people got the flu despite getting immunized. Update: influenza activity- United States, October 1- November 25, 2017. Prior to that, the county had logged 34 cases in the entire nine weeks of this year's flu season. Brazil, on the other hand, has had a very mild season. Still, experts say it's still worth getting the vaccine. "Typically, we don't see flu starting to arrive in Pima County until February or March". This research is critical in order to understand what the next flu threats to humans may be. The most commonly identified viruses have been influenza A viruses, with influenza A (H3N2) predominating. It's a game of cat and mouse trying to chase the newest strain. Most influenza viruses characterized during this period were genetically or antigenically similar to the Northern Hemisphere cell-grown vaccine reference viruses for 2017 to 2018.

"We're expecting a fairly severe flu season", said Swift.

But preventing a flu outbreak isn't just the responsibility of scientists and immunologists.

Health officials say the flu vaccine seems well matched to the viruses making people sick, but it's too early to tell how bad this season will be.

And just a third of pregnant women have received the shot.

People who have the flu often experience all or numerous following symptoms: fever, chills, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle or body aches, headaches, fatigue and occasionally vomiting or diarrhea, although digestive issues are more common in children. In my role at St. Jude, I see firsthand the devastating effects this virus can have on the treatment of pediatric cancer patients whose immune systems are already severely weakened by cancer treatments.

North America Flu Vaccine Market Segmentation by Types: Whole Virus Vaccines, Split Virus Vaccines, Subunit Vaccines, Live Attenuated Virus Vaccines, and more.

In Australia, the vaccine was only 10 percent effective. This helps to avoid a larger, more serious health emergency.

Flu viruses are constantly changing, and different viruses can circulate causing illness each season.

Remember that this flu season, it's not just about you-it's about friends, family and neighbors in your community.
