First death of Florida flu season confirmed

First death of Florida flu season confirmed

"It is very easy to catch any sort of illness this time of year with all the hugs, handshakes and shared surfaces at parties or shopping malls", said OMRF immunologist Eliza Chakravarty, M.D.

While rare, there are flu-related deaths each season.

Health-care workers and people whose close contacts have underlying medical conditions have additional impetus to get inoculated against the flu, she said.

An antiviral medication can shorten the flu by one to three days, ease symptoms, and cut the risk of complications, but only if you start it within 48 hours of getting sick.

"People from those areas are getting ready to travel for the winter holidays, and they'll bring flu with them", Mills said.

"Some patients believe the possible side effects outweigh the positives that they get from prevention", she said.

Bryan Singer fired as director of Queen biopic 'Bohemian Rhapsody'
His no-shows resulted in cinematographer Thomas Newton Sigel having to step in to helm some of the days while Singer was missing. However, the future of the project is now up for debate as news comes through that Singer has been fired from production.

Lin, who chaired the meeting, said that doctors have reported that while hepatitis A vaccines have been administered to children older than 12 months, they are not included in subsidies for children's standard vaccinations, which might result in doctors being unable to apply for reimbursement of vaccination costs. "The people who are most vulnerable are the elderly and children and women who are pregnant".

Doctors have been warning of a bad flu season in the U.S. because of what happened in Australia.

The CDC has seen 7,000 cases this year, that double what they saw last year at this time. Flu vaccines offer lasting protection against the flu for the entire flu season. The article's authors also noted that "the vaccine prevented about a third of all illness by all of the types of flu", Flannery said. "And there are a lot of H1N1 and B viruses out there", Brammer said.

In fact, RSV is the most common cause of bronchiolitis, inflammation of the small airways in the lung, and pneumonia, infection of the lungs, in children younger than 1 year of age in the United States. "Because if it's not the flu, it's more likely some other viral infectious etiology and we can pass viral stuff pretty easy".

But she added that a 10 percent effectiveness rate still seems a bit low.
