Doctors: Flu season only beginning in MI

Influenza Vaccination

He says the flu shot won't make you sick, it will prevent it. The flu causes US employees to miss approximately 17 million workdays, at an estimated $7 billion a year in sick days and lost productivity. The report shows that 376 people have been hospitalized with the virus since the flu season started in October.

"This is typically the time of year that we would see flu tests and hospitalizations go up", said Dr. Mike Sevilla from Family Practice Center of Salem, Ohio. The most recent death was in an adult over the age of 65.

CDC also recommends everyday preventive actions, like staying away from people who are sick, covering coughs and sneezes and frequent handwashing, to help slow the spread of germs that cause respiratory (nose, throat and lungs) illnesses, like flu.

People would not keep coming back year after year to get the flu shot if it made them ill.

The state said you still have time to get one this year and it's especially important for children to get one.

During the last flu season, only 39.5 percent of MI residents were vaccinated against flu, which is below the national rate of 41.7 percent.

One reason for hospitalization can be pneumonia, which is a "very well-known complication of influenza", Bogoch said.

Public health officials have acknowledged that last year's flu vaccine was disappointing, with a low effectiveness rate.

The research report on the Global Influenza Vaccines Consumption Market is a professional and in-depth study on the current state of the global {Main_keyword} Market with a focus on the major countries/markets in the world like North America, EU, APAC and ROW.

A year ago at this time, just 2,400 flu cases had been confirmed and only 26 of those were children. But it is never too late to get vaccinated even in the middle of the flu season as this can still offer some benefit.

The best preventive measure that can be taken to ward off or mitigate influenza is to get a flu vaccine each year, the CDC states. However, it is possible that others have been diagnosed with flu by their primary-care physicians or the Emergency Department at the hospital without Public Health being aware of it.

When their children are sick, parents should watch for signs of an "acute" respiratory infection, including pneumonia.
