  • San Diego Residents Urged to Get Flu Shots Amid Growing Cases

And what that feels like won't be a nice day, or two or three, off.

HELENA- The Montana Department of Health and Human Services report increased influenza activity across Montana. In comparison, there were 87 cases of the flu reported at this time previous year.

Since August, 709 cases of the flu have been reported in North Dakota.

By comparison, 87 cases of the flu were reported at this time past year, and widespread flu activity wasn't announced until mid-January.

"We've seen increases in cases here since Thanksgiving". "The number of cases has been climbing but steadily, not "spiking".

"Getting the flu is an very bad experience".

Flu season lasts from October through May.

As it's produced by the pharmaceutical companies, it contains strands adapted to grow in eggs.

"MCMC has a duty to protect the health of staff, patients and visitors", said Louis Teyner, director of quality and risk management, in a written statement. Vaccinations are available at Kentucky's local health departments, pharmacies, and medical providers.

Some claim to hate needles while many assume getting the shot is going to hurt.

ONA represents more than 13,500 nurses in OR and has filed unfair labor practice complaints against other hospitals, such as St. Charles Health System in Bend, for holding employees and volunteers to the same standards as MCMC. There are many "concerns with babies and the elderly", Jenkins added. "I certainly wouldn't put others at risk", that individual said.

She said tests results from doctors' offices and through their ER show more Flu A, or a mixture of A and B.


According to the department's weekly influenza summary, 234 cases of flu were reported last week.

As of this time last season, there were four deaths in the county.

There have been six reported outbreaks of "influenza-like illnesses" in long-term and basic care settings.

The new FluView report also noted one influenza-associated pediatric death, which was reported in week 49 but occurred in week 44.

Burton agrees it's especially hard during the holidays, to be careful and stay healthy.

Getting the shot is a proactive way to avoid a potentially harmful illness that is good for you, your loved one and the people in your care, say hospital administrators. "If you have guests, limit contact". When talking, droplets of a persons saliva can scatter through the air, hence landing on the nose or mouth of other people who are nearby then subsequently being inhaled into their lungs.

The flu vaccine is the single best way to protect against catching and spreading flu.

MCMC lists the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices and the Healthcare Infection Control Practices Advisory Committee, along with 12 other organizations, such as the American Academy of Family Physicians, as recommending annual flu vaccinations. "Symptoms include a fever of 100 degrees Fahrenheit or higher, cough, and/or sore throat".

Children may experience nausea and vomiting.

Officials with the city's Department of Public Health said that the woman, whose identity was not released, had underlying medical conditions and had not received a flu vaccine this season.

Consider over-the-counter medications. For example nasal decongestants can help unclog a stuffy nose; and antihistamines stop sneezing.
