Is flu shot only 10 percent effective?

Murrieta child dies of flu-related complications

Tina Cass, infection control practitioner for Fairfield Medical Center, said the center has seen six flu-related hospitalizations since October this year. Manufacturing, health care, education, assisted living/memory care and hospitality are just a few of the major industries in our community and all of these business sectors have a shared resource, they all rely on employees to operate.

Statewide flu data for SC for the week ending December 9 shows that there were 28 influenza cases per 100,000 for Horry County, according to the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control.

Flu season is back, which means it's time to protect yourself and loved ones by getting a free flu shot.

Fauci noted that the flu vaccine was only 10 percent effective at fighting the predominant flu strain - Influenza A (H3N2) - making people sick in Australia.

Delaware's Division of Public Health is reporting the first flu-related death of the season. Earlier projections from the World Health Organization's earlier projections of deaths from seasonal flu - 250,000 to 500,000 per year - "are outdated", according to the study published Wednesday in The Lancet. "This is true any time of year but especially during flu season".

"The situation is under control, and there have not been any new reported cases", the GES further assured. The CDC estimates that influenza vaccination averted 40,000 deaths in the United States between the 2005-06 and 2013-14 seasons. The flu vaccination has also shown to be associated with reduced hospitalizations among people with diabetes by 79 percent and those with chronic lung disease by 52 percent. Because while the influenza may be at best uncomfortable for some people, it is deadly for some.

"When we measure vaccine effectiveness, that's effectiveness against protecting against disease completely", said Schaffner, who was not involved in the CDC research, though he is a liaison representative of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, which develops recommendations on the use of vaccines for the CDC. 35 patients have been hospitalized in the county, according to the Tulsa Health Department's Leanne Stephens. "We know that the flu virus is very smart and it can mutate pretty quickly and so we'll have to see when we start to see more influenza". One false misconception is that an individual can get flu from the vaccine.

When certain people get sick, they are at high risk of developing serious flu-related complications, such as pneumonia or bronchitis.
