Flu-related hospital stays up at Fairfield Medical Center

Numbers of local cases were not readily available from Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center.

The CDC is working hard to address this global problem by strengthening global flu surveillance.

Flu infection can create or exacerbate other health factors, which are then listed as the cause of death on death certificates, for example cardiovascular disease, diabetes, or related complications, they noted.

"This Monday and Tuesday, a free shuttle for seniors from City Hall's front drive to the National Sports Centre will help you get your flu shot via Flu Express".

Influenza A (H1N1), A (H3N2), and one or two influenza B viruses (depending on the vaccine) are included in each year's influenza vaccine.

Dr Michael Osterholm, who directs The Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, told Business Insider that the vaccine is, at best, around 10 percent effective on H3N2.

Researchers looked at how effective the vaccine has been in Australia, which uses the same one as the United States.

An above-average flu season in the US?

Though the new report sheds light on seasonal flu morality burden and the need for greater prevention, Sullivan wrote, "What is less clear is whether our current prevention strategies are adequate to reduce this burden".

For the cases of suspected meningitis, the GES said it was "awaiting the medical report from the Ghana Health Service, including their recommendations on the way forward, and will update the public accordingly upon receipt".

There have also been 612 influenza-related hospitalizations reported in the state.

"Among the general population, about 39 percent have received the vaccine", said Stokley, co-author of a new CDC report that canvased people by phone and internet in early November. "People who are immune compromised, the elderly, and the young need this protection". People can also become infected by touching surfaces or objects contaminated with influenza viruses and then touching their eyes, mouth or nose. The flu shots were made mandatory for hospital staff and physicians beginning in 2016 and posters with information about the vaccine and flu are posted in doctors' offices and in the hospital pharmacy.

Similar activity is being seen across the province and there are also several other respiratory viruses circulating this time of year with Rhinovirus being the most common, non-influenza virus right now.
