Even in Maryland, some deaths have been reported in connection with the virus. People's response to flu, he said, seems to be primed by the first type of flu we encounter as children.

People who contract the flu can become contagious from one day before becoming sick and up to seven days after.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published a preliminary estimate of the vaccine's effectiveness on Thursday.

And, she said, the flu season may not end for months. By comparison, only 31 states/jurisdictions experienced high illness in a single week during the two previous seasons known to be severe: the 2012-13 and 2014-15 seasons.

At this time past year, 44 deaths and 3,368 total confirmed cases had been tallied, compared to the 251 deaths and 16,078 cases this season. Flu vaccines are made using eggs, which is unusual.

The CDC also stated that the H3N2 virus tends to cause more suffering than other strains. "The vaccine's performance in children was better than we expected", she said. This knowledge should help improve next year's vaccine effectiveness, he said. That could explain why children have been responding better to this season's vaccine.

The Disease Outbreak Control Division's weekly influenza surveillance report for the fourth week of the 2018 flu season, from January 21 to 27, was released on Wednesday.


"It is not too late to get a flu shot", said Dr. J. Patrick O'Neal, M.D., the Georgia Public Health Commissioner.

Meanwhile, on February 9, 2018, New York City's Department of Health and Mental Hygiene reported the city's third pediatric flu death this season but did not release any other details about the child. States are not required to report adult flu deaths.

"The risk for H3N2 associated medically attended influenza illness was reduced by more than half (59 percent) among vaccinated children", the team noted. The Tennessee Department of Health is urging all Tennesseans who have not yet received a flu shot this flu season to get one as soon as possible, as seasonal influenza remains widespread across the state.

The flu virus can also live for a short time on things you touch, such as door knobs, telephones, and toys.

"Getting the flu shot is the same kind of sensible precaution as buckling your seatbelt", said Health Secretary Alex Azar.

"It's mostly to protect my granddaughter, who has a low immune system", Woolf said. People must get a new vaccine every year to be protected.

Recent research suggests that the traditional production process may make flu vaccines less effective, especially for H3N2.
