Flu season hits early, hard in Texas

  • Ohio Department of Health reports first child flu death of season

That spike is comparable to the amount seen during the entirety of last year's flu season, and local hospitals have felt the strain.

Children under the age of 18 should not visit the hospital.

"What has happened in some instances over the last week have been just spot shortages of the medication because of increased demand in some cities and in some pharmacies", he said. "It's less likely for those without chronic diseases, but it's still a possibility".

Getting a flu shot is the best preventative measure and it's never too late, Scherzer added. "You can still get the flu, no vaccine is flawless".

Experts warn this year's flu season could be worst than other years and with school back in session, it means its open season for the flu virus to spread.

But Harding said people should still get a flu shot because even it the vaccine is off some, it can still make the symptoms less severe compared to not having the shot at all. But the symptoms will be milder and probably have a shorter duration.

When medical personnel give the flu vaccine to a patient, they inform them that they may feel soreness in their arm or general body aches and even a low-grade fever in response to it. Residents with questions should contact their health care provider.

"Its very important for people who are sick to be able to stay home", said Barbara Ferrer, director of the county Department of Public Health.

Each Friday, the Kane County Health Department releases statistics providing an overview of influenza within the county. That dwarfs the 369 hospitalizations at this time previous year.

Up to December 30, 1,050 influenza-associated hospitalizations had been reported and 34 deaths. There have been four outbreaks of influenza at long-term care/assisted living facilities in the county. Both are indicated by coughing and a runny nose, but the flu is separated by headaches, chills, a possible fever and extreme fatigue. People need to be allowed to stay home when they're sick, and they need to be allowed to stay home to care for their young children when they are sick.

The H3N2 virus, a.k.a. influenza A, is the main strain making people sick, and it's tough to fight.
