Influenza Vaccine

While most people may recover within a week or two, some can develop serious and even life-threatening complications.

The report provides important statistics on the existing state of the said market.

So far, the MDHHS says MI has only experienced localized flu activity but still advises anyone older than six months get a flu vaccine.

The more people who get vaccinated, the more hard it is for influenza to spread through communities. But, people 65 years and older bear the greatest burden of severe flu disease.

Dr. David Williams says the vaccine was carefully formulated to protect against four current flu strains based on recommendations from the World Health Organization.

Figures released by the Public Health Agency of Canada's FluWatch report show that more than three times as many children have been hospitalized across the country compared to this time previous year. It will help them to cautiously select their genres so that they can have an equal footing to compete with global giants who have an end to end development studios, with huge production capabilities that come with years of experience backing them.

DPH says that an average of 20,000 children younger than 5 years old are hospitalized because of flu complication, and the requirement is to help reduce the risk.

There are a few different types of respiratory viruses circulating, she said, including influenza A - which can lead to serious secondary infections, such as pneumonia, that put children in hospital.

In addition, preliminary data from Australia - which already had its flu season - showed that people who had been vaccinated this year were 68 per cent less likely to see a doctor or nurse practitioner for the flu compared to unvaccinated people, she said.

The CDC cites the annual direct costs for the flu in the US, such as hospital and doctors' office visits and medications, as an estimated $4.6 billion.

Now that the Christmas holidays have passed, it's time to prepare for the future by starting the new year healthier by preventing the flu.

FluWatch figures show that-as of December 15-some 8,242 cases of the flu in both adults and children have been confirmed.
