Flu virus now widespread in Georgia

While early season flu shot coverage is similar to previous years it has dipped this year as we can see from this data published today by the CDC

Compared to this time previous year, experts say there are double the number of confirmed cases of the flu.

It's just the start of the flu season, but the virus has already spread widely across MA, according to state epidemiologists who track and report the flu to the Centers for Disease Control.

Goudreau says "the relatively low percentage of effectiveness in Australia is due to many factors, including the shifting and changing of the flu virus each season".

The CDC confirmed flu cases in 2017 are at more than 7,000 right now, which is more than double what they were at this time a year ago.

The FRDI Bill 2017 was tabled in the Lok Sabha in August, following which it was referred to the joint parliamentary committee. The committee will submit the report in the upcoming winter session of Parliament starting on December 15.

Nationally, three states, in addition to MA, are seeing widespread cases of the flu.

According to the Department of Public Health, there have been no flu-related deaths this season, but there have been 32 hospitalizations and flu activity is only increasing.

Yearly flu vaccinations help protect individuals from influenza. That's important because up to a month after older adults have recovered from the flu, they're still at an increased risk of having a heart attack or stroke.

The New England Journal of Medicine says this year's shot is only about 10% effective against the strain that hit Australia the hardest, which is the one we're expecting to get.
