Flu cases tripled this year at Erlanger

"It is a piece of the flu that they put into you so your body can respond to it and then when it sees that piece of the flu again on a real flu virus it can attack it".

This year, the percentage of patients reporting flu-like symptoms reached the threshold of 2.2% by late November, an indication that flu season has started, USA TODAY reported. Although most people fully recover from the flu, some experience severe illness like pneumonia and respiratory failure, and the flu can sometimes be fatal.

Usually, just one subtype, either influenza A or B, is responsible for the majority of cases. It was witnessed predominantly in Australia this year, hence the name.

About 80 to 90 percent of cases this flu season are influenza A, compared to about 60 percent of cases in the 2015-16 season.

"Young children are often called "super spreaders" as their personal hygiene habits aren't as good as adults'". However, the virus in the government-funded vaccine is the Victoria lineage.

"Flu season is officially upon us at Scotland Health Care System".

It can take up to two weeks to build full immunity to the flu after you are vaccinated, so I encourage everyone who has not yet had a flu shot to get one today before the holidays. She said the flu vaccination is the biggest defense against the illness.

In other words, it still reduces the risk of developing serious flu symptoms and the likelihood of fatality, he stressed.

You can catch the cold from the vaccine. Avoid people who appear to be sick.

Baptist Health Medical Center-Conway officials have also confirmed 105 positive flu tests through its emergency department in the past few months.

A further 73 have been hospitalised - causing medics to urge people to get vaccinated as the flue "actively circulates" in Ireland. However, for those that are more vulnerable, it can be more severe and it is important to be aware of this and seek help when needed.

You can infect others beginning one day before you get sick to about five to seven days after developing symptoms.
