Third Flu Death in Delaware

The NHS recommends that those likely to develop complications from flu such as the elderly or pregnant women should be vaccinated every year

The vaccine may not prevent the flu, but the CDC says it can reduce the severity of symptoms and the length of the illness.

Symptoms generally include fever, sore throat, body aches and headache. "In the years when an H3 virus is predominant, we tend to have a worse flu season with more hospitalizations and more deaths".

A flu shot is especially crucial for people who may be at higher risk for serious complications. It tends to be more severe, spreads quickly and leads to more deaths.

"We have a Tamiflu shortage now", Halliburton-Foster said.

Placer County health officials are now looking at the possibility of this season's second death from flu.

"It's important for people to take those warning signs and start taking care of themselves, getting plenty of fluids, plenty of rest", Morris said.

TIME that while there's no evidence that the dog flu can be transmitted to humans, some experts worry this could happen in the future. But there's still time for you to protect yourself. Hand-washing stations are located on each patient floor. Number three, good disinfectant, clean surfaces whether you're at home, at work or at the gym.

Pediatric flu concerns: why is the flu killing kids? Fitzgerald told Reuters that reports that the flu vaccine in Australia was only 10% effective may have caused people to think it was not worthwhile to get vaccinated.

In an interview with National Geographic, Antoni Fauci, director of the National Institutes of Health National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Deseases, detailed the nature of this year's dominant strain.

Some Houston-area doctors have said this season's H2-N3 strain of the flu is particularly aggressive and contagious. What we're seeing this year as a best guess is about 30% so still really good.

The use of masks will be encouraged for patients with flu-like symptoms.

Vicious flu season severely criticizes Washington, which mimics a debilitating illness wave from the recent years and has grabbed the entire U.S., according to the statement given by the health officers.

Another big way to try to avoid the flu is eat healthy and exercise regularly. Schools, gyms, grocery stores, large congregations of people, church, shopping malls.
