  • Wash your hands and get a flu shot — health unit

During the 2016-17 flu season, more than 100 children in the USA died as a result of the flu, and thousands more were hospitalized for severe illness or complications from the virus.

In Texas, flu season generally runs from October to April and doctors say right now is the prime time to get vaccinated against the flu, along with practicing good hand hygiene.

Melnick urged those at greatest risk of complications from flu -' young children, pregnant women, people 65 and older and people with asthma, diabetes, heart disease and long-term health conditions - to get vaccinated. "If you have not gotten your flu shot yet, don't delay and be sure to make a plan to get one soon".

CDC does not recommend use of the nasal spray vaccine again this season since a study previous year showed that it was not effective in preventing infection when compared to the injection.

The California Department of Public Health received the first report of an influenza-associated fatality in a person under the age of 65 for the 2017-18 flu season on Thursday. According to the weekly FluView report, local influenza activity was reported by five states - California, Colorado, Massachusetts, Oklahoma and SC - up from two states the previous week, while the US Virgin Islands and 38 states reported sporadic influenza activity. Some people are at higher risk for getting the flu and therefore have even more reason to get the flu shot.

"The flu shot is the best way to not only protect yourself, but also the higher-risk people around you".
