  • Only 19 per cent of Manitobans vaccinated against flu but it's not too late

The H3N2 strain, which caused one of Australia's worst flu outbreaks previous year, can lead to pneumonia and other life-threatening conditions.

Dr. Tan said many illnesses can cause similar symptoms, including headache, fever and chills, so unless you get tested, you won't know for sure.

There were also four deaths in the elderly category, along with three in ages 50 to 64.

In its weekly "California Influenza Surveillance Report", the state's Department of Public Health announced at the end of December that the flu bug is "widely circulating in California".

The 2016-17 season had 219 confirmed deaths related to the flu.

The number of flu cases normally peaks here and elsewhere between January and February.

"It's a little too early to tell", what kind of flu season we're going to have, he said.

Almost 1,000 influenza cases have been reported in Pima County so far this season through December 30 - 10 times more than the number of cases reported through December 31 a year ago.

"There's plenty of vaccine, so please go get your flu shot".

The number of reported cases represent a small proportion of the true number of cases of influenza.

Novant said in a statement that "while we constantly monitor the spread of influenza at our hospitals, as well as in the communities we serve, at this time we do not feel that we have reached the threshold where visitor restrictions are necessary".

"We're about two weeks ahead of where we were a year ago", she said.
