According to new statistics by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, flu-related illnesses have spiked in Colorado over the past week.

CDC also recommends everyday preventive actions, like staying away from people who are sick, covering coughs and sneezes and frequent handwashing, to help slow the spread of germs that cause respiratory (nose, throat and lungs) illnesses, like flu. "We've been telling our patients for a long time to look out, because the flu numbers are going to be going up, so we're officially in flu season".

At this time a year ago, there were 2,400 fewer confirmed flu cases in Canada overall - and only 26 children had been hospitalized.

Ontario's top medical health official says this year's flu vaccine looks like it's hitting the mark. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), flu activity most commonly peaks in the USA between December and February.

Many were adults older than 65, but also 180 children died from the flu.

Most of the 47 cases so serious that they required admission to the ICU were children under 10 years of age, the report said.

According to the ministry, the campaign has succeeded in vaccinating 100,000 people of different age groups in the health facilities of the Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) and at the health centres of the Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC, ) as well as in more than 45 hospitals, health centres and a private and semi-government clinics.

Several counties are experiencing flu outbreaks including Collier County, which has seen as many as 4 outbreaks this year. The flu causes US employees to miss approximately 17 million workdays, at an estimated $7 billion a year in sick days and lost productivity.

But, if a parent has a signed statement from a healthcare provider showing that the child has a future flu shot appointment already scheduled, they will be admitted to class. "Flu season is in full-swing, and as the number of cases and hospitalizations continue to rise, we must do everything we can to protect ourselves and our loved ones".

The U.S. influenza vaccines market was valued at US$ 2.1 billion in 2016 and is expected to witness a CAGR of 15.9% over the forecast period (2017-2025). The Michigan flu fatality occurred in Osceola County.

Mesa County Public Health will be closed tomorrow for Christmas, but if you need a flu shot, they will be back open on December 26.

"[It's] likely to be much, much better than past year", he said.
