Also, according to Richard K. Zimmerman, MD, MPH, professor of family medicine, and associate professor of behavioral and community health sciences, University of Pittsburgh, flu vaccine rates dropped 40 percent a year ago, and 79,000 people in the United States died from the flu (the typical number is 23,000). In most parts of the country, illnesses right now are being caused by a flu strain that causes fewer hospitalizations and deaths than last year's strain, according to Centers for Disease and Control Prevention (CDC) officials.

But the percentage of those eligible for taking up the offer of a free vaccine is down compared with last winter.

The recently published report will also help researchers made decisions when determining next year's vaccine. If a person does get a disease but is in contact with people who have been vaccinated, the disease will not spread quickly to other people.

However, the H3N2 virus, another kind of influenza A virus, which dominated influenza spread past year, played havoc in the southeastern region of the country.

Just over 46% of children aged two and three have received the vaccine this winter, usually given to this age group as a pain-free nasal spray. "It is possible that it could be comparable if not a worse season than past year for Nebraska".

"It is important to practice good respiratory and hand hygiene and to get the vaccine if you are eligible, although we are now coming to the end of the vaccine season".

"I am not taking any risks".

Last winter more than 820,000 in total were vaccinated - 25% of the population of Wales.

Hu said peak flu season is likely over in Alberta, with the most confirmed cases in November and December.

Dr Jo McCarthy, consultant in public health microbiology at Hywel Dda, said she was one of the 100,000 people the health board has already vaccinated.

Hall says this looks to be a long flu season.

"Not only is my vaccination protecting me, it is protecting those around me too - my family, friends, neighbours and patients".

Of those 391 deaths, 290 were people age 65 and older and seven were children under the age of 18. Next, people with the flu should stay home from work or school. The CDC reports that White adults have higher vaccination rates than African American, Latinx and Asian adults.
