Those who develop flu symptoms should seek medical advice to determine if they should be treated with an antiviral drug, which could shorten the course of the illness or reduce its severity.

Haggie says there are suggestions that one of the four strains of the virus contained in this year's influenza vaccine is less than ideal.

California provides weekly public health epidemic tracking through 68 enrolled "Sentinel Providers" (physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants) located in all 58 California counties.

A supply of flu virus vaccine at Novato Marin Community Clinic.

"Everyone 6 months of age and older should be vaccinated against the flu every year", Los Angeles County officials noted.

"Flu activity has been very high around the country this season and is widespread in Tennessee right now", Chambers said.

"That's an indication of the surge of flu cases in the state", Day said.

Influenza cases have ramped up in the state in recent weeks, health officials say, with 15 CT residents dying so far from seasonal flu.

Regular hand washing, covering coughs and sneezes with the inside of one's elbow, and reducing stress also will protect and limit the effects of seasonal flu.

"It was well received previous year".

The total number of flu cases in the state at the end of a year ago was at 71,469.

The 15 deaths occurred in individuals age 65 or older.

Most of the people who have tested positive for influenza statewide, including those in Marin, have type A, subtype H3N2.

Long-term care residents are all vaccinated, pushing the rate among people 65 and up to 90 per cent, he said, while 98 per cent of children get a shot.

Jay Bruce will return to the New York Mets after agreeing to a deal with the team, ESPN.com's Jerry Crasnick reported Wednesday. Out of contention, the Mets finally shipped Bruce to the Indians in August for minor league relief pitcher Ryder Ryan.

"We extend our deepest sympathies to the families".

The most recent numbers from the Department of Health show things in this province seem fairly normal in terms of the amount of influenza being spread.

Patients should plan for a a visit of about 30 to 45 minutes to get the shot even with the appointment, she said, because they ask for patients to remain for a period after the shot to make sure there's no adverse reaction to it before they're released. Those at highest risk for flu complications are pregnant women; the elderly; children younger than 5; and people with asthma, diabetes, chronic heart and lung disease and other chronic conditions.

Flu symptoms include severe muscle or body aches, chills, a fever that lasts several days, headaches, fatigue, severe chest discomfort and a cough.

Wash your handsoften with soap and water.

John Haggie told CBC's On the Go on Thursday that since the start of flu clinics in October, 109,783 vaccines have been administered, compared with 106,077 over the entire flu season previous year. "Even said." We're hoping to see a peak, and it's going to come down but it is still just January.

"We normally have two peaks in our flu season", he said.
