  • Flu shots

A total of 1,243,712 flu shots have been administered throughout the province so far this season, with 526,685 of those going out in Calgary. At least seven children under age 10 in Canada have died from influenza complications as of January 12, according to the Public Health Agency of Canada. "People might also get flu by touching a contaminated surface or object that has flu virus on it and then touching their own mouth or nose".

Skowronski says the vaccine's effectiveness preventing H1N1 infection is comparable to that found by Australia during its most recent flu season.

Compared to last year's vaccine, it's also drastically more effective.

Officials from the Connecticut State Health Department announced this week that the flu is spreading rapidly throughout the state, with some hospitals reportedly limiting visitation to prevent the spread of the virus.

It's still early, but the current influenza (flu) season is shaping up to be gentler than last winter's unusually brutal one.

He described the business environment as "complicated" but stressed that Huawei's consumer business was seeing good growth. It also boasts "super high" computing capacity, Huawei said, with a 2.5-fold increase over previous chips.

Previous year in January, the practice tested 268 patients and saw 107 positive results with Influenza B being the most common.

Flu hospitalizations across the state are almost identical to last year but there have been more influenza-related deaths this year compared to last year during the same week, Warner said in the email.

Flu activity is expected to continue for weeks. The organization estimates that flu has resulted in between 9.2 million and 35.6 million illnesses each year in the United States and several deaths. This is impossible. The flu vaccine contains an inactivated virus or no flu virus at all, so it can not give you the flu.

"It was a really frightening episode, so when the surgery called us to say bring her in for vaccination I brought her in because I don't want her to have another episode". Flu vaccination also has been shown to reduce severity of illness among people who get vaccinated but still get sick. This is the overall rate with a higher proportion of people who are 65 and older requiring hospitalization (38.3 per every 100,000), followed by children up to age 4 (26.5 per every 100,000).

This season's influenza vaccine appears to be highly effective, reducing the risk of infection with the dominant circulating flu strain by more than 70 per cent - far better than what was seen with last year's shot, Canadian researchers say.
