Experts predict a bad flu season for Texas

This year's flu arrival is "eerily similar" to last year, said Dr.

According to the Center for Disease Control, the flu is widespread in the Ohio Valley right now.

Sullivan, Ind. - New Wendesday, the CDC released information that the 2016 flu vaccine was 32% effective for string a, which is actually, a really good outcome.

Infants should receive two doses of the vaccine at least six months apart, the agency said, adding that children born past year or earlier who have received one shot of the vaccine can receive a second shot before they enter elementary school. "The number of flu cases that were reported last week is the highest in a single week that we have seen in recent years".

Also, washing your hands with soap and water or using hand sanitizer, may help to avoid the flu.

For example, people with egg allergies are assigned a specific egg-free vaccine, and so on. Some healthcare companies offer this option as part of a worksite wellness program in which they administer flu shots and provide educational materials. When someone gets sick, they mistakenly believe the vaccine was the cause. Health notwithstanding, healthcare professionals generally recommend the vaccine because of exposure - to friends, family, co-workers - that can lead to infection.

While the flu vaccine is most often administered from September to mid-November, it is not too late for people who have not yet gotten vaccinated to do so.

The flu can be easily transmitted from your hands - "It's critically important" to avoid touching your mouth, nose, eyes or face after potential contact with the virus.

Flu season is at its peak from December through February, and with many people visiting and traveling for the holidays it is spreading.

It takes two weeks for your body to develop immunity to the virus after you get the flu shot.

Patients in the central San Joaquin Valley have tested positive for influenza A and B. Influenza A is the more common strain, but the Valley is seeing more of influenza B than in other regions of the country, Bergen said. However, studies have found that there is no link between vaccines containing thimerosal and ASD.
