Reported flu cases triple locally

The Arizona Department of Health Services has announced that the flu is widespread in Arizona with 2,629 more cases reported than previous year.

The most compelling statistic is the increase in reported flu cases from this time past year.

Montana's flu season lasts from October through May and typically peaks in January.

Widespread activity is the highest level of flu activity.

Most of the time, vaccines don't cause any side effects; and the vaccines go through rigorous testing before they are approved, and are constantly monitored once available to the public.

"Even if our vaccine is not a good match to the circulating viruses, there's still research that indicates people who've had a flu shot, if you do still happen to get the flu, the severity of those symptoms are lessened", said Sue Grant, community health services supervisor at the McLean County Health Department.

"The influenza vaccine protects against multiple strains of flu", said Stacey Anderson, who works for the DPHHS Communicable Disease Epidemiology section. Also, experts suggest getting the flu shot.

Last year, the US flu vaccine was about 42 percent effective. Wu said the flu season in CT could extend into April.

Symptoms of influenza include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue.

In addition, they say the vaccine doesn't produce the same quality and strength of antibodies that a person's body develops after they get the flu. "Even if the vaccine may not prevent every case of influenza, the evidence shows that getting a flu shot still can prevent severe illness and hospitalization". "We often think of the very young and seniors when we think of the vulnerable, but people at any age with underlying health conditions are also at a greater risk of the flu and serious complications stemming from it".

"They've had it since, like, three months ago", Perez said.

"We in public health like to say stay home, keep it to yourself, don't share with others".
