Confirmed cases of flu rising across NY state

Confirmed cases of flu rising across NY state”

Respiratory illnesses, including the flu, have hospitals such as CHU Sainte-Justine in Montreal working overtime.

According to the ministry, there has been a rise in vaccination coverage this year compared to previous years, thanks to the significant efforts made by the ministry and all relevant authorities in both the government and private sectors to ensure that vaccinations reach the entire population, especially as awareness has increased among people about the importance of vaccination and its effectiveness in preventing seasonal influenza.

So far, the MDHHS says MI has only experienced localized flu activity but still advises anyone older than six months get a flu vaccine. He says the flu shot won't make you sick, it will prevent it.

Health officials said most people are testing positive for Influenza A H1N1. Last flu season was the county's worst in almost 20 years of collecting data, with 342 residents succumbing to flu complications. The Broome County Health Department says those numbers jumped dramatically in the first few weeks of December. Influenza vaccines are available with a wide range of options for different age groups i.e. children aged 6 months and above and adults aged 65 and above. So far, two unvaccinated children in Florida have died from the flu this season. But, what they're seeing is expected for this time of year. Although it's too soon to measure the effectiveness this year's version, some early indicators are promising, according to the Public Health Agency of Canada.

Influenza Vaccine Market Report is a system for gathering, sorting, analysing, and distributing needed, timely and accurate markets information with proper format to marketing decision makers of a business.

A market overview section in the report demonstrates the market trends and dynamics that contains the opportunities, deployment models, future roadmap, value chain, market drivers, and restraining factors of the current and future market.

Choosing to get the flu shot - for yourself and for your children - is a "no-brainer", Bogoch said.

"People should talk to their doctor or pharmacist about getting a flu vaccination for themselves and other family members", he stated.

The CDC cites the annual direct costs for the flu in the US, such as hospital and doctors' office visits and medications, as an estimated $4.6 billion.

At this time, most of the state is experiencing mild flu activity.

From a prevention standpoint, the best things parents can do is have their children vaccinated against the flu, make sure they are washing their hands and keep them home from school if they are sick so they don't spread the virus to others, he said.
