The 2019-2020 Flu Season in USVI Is Underway

A/H1N1 (pdm09) is the other main circulating strain, and Piedra said that "older folks have a lot of immunity against that type of virus". Receiving a flu vaccination when healthy helps to prevent illness in the most vulnerable populations as well.

But here's the thing about the flu vaccine: It doesn't necessarily give you full protection against the virus-even if it's a good match.

Flu season in Montana often peaks between February and March, so getting a flu vaccine is still beneficial, the press release states.

As the Emergency Department is now seeing a surge, familiarize yourself with the healthcare options available for non-urgent care such as Telehealth Ontario or walk-in clinic availability.

The CDC estimates that so far this season there have been at least 9.7 million flu illnesses, 87,000 hospitalizations and 4,800 deaths from the flu in the U.S. It's the eighth straight week flu activity is above baseline normal; a year ago, levels of ILI in the U.S. were at or above baseline for 21 straight weeks.

The influenza vaccine is available free of charge from Global Positioning System for people in at-risk groups, and from pharmacists, for everyone in at-risk groups aged 10 years and over. "This year, all three are circulating at the same time", he said. It's not too late - flu season can extend as late as May.

Influenza symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue.

"We definitely recommend individuals over six months of age who have not received their influenza vaccine to go now".

"I wish to implore persons who fall in the high-risk groups, to ensure that they are vaccinated against the flu". If you need to visit your GP or the Emergency Department, please phone first to explain that you might have flu. It's very important that antiviral drugs be used early to treat flu in people who are very sick with flu (for example, people who are in the hospital).
