71 per cent fall in number of flu cases

Flu Shot

In a press release, Florida DOH says the clinic will allow people to "roll in" and receive a flu shot, all while staying in their vehicle. Within one day you go from zero flu cases to 20.

The Clover Health Flu Shot Monitor found that 75% of people aged 80 or more years, 66% of those aged 70 to 79, and 56% of adults aged 60 to 69 have been vaccinated so far this year.

As long as flu viruses are circulating, it's not too late to get vaccinated as the flu shot can reduce illnesses, missed work and school, doctor visits, and can prevent flu-related hospitalizations, the ISDH added.

Seasonal influenza activity is spreading in Perry County and across Tennessee and is expected to continue for months, so it's important for anyone over six months of age who hasn't had a flu shot this flu season to get one now.

Flu Shot

As long as flu viruses are circulating, it's not too late to get vaccinated. "That is why the flu shot is recommended for everyone over the age of 6 months, regardless of whether they are healthy or have risks". It may also make your illness milder if you do get sick.

Today, December 4, the Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) reported its first laboratory-confirmed case of influenza for the 2018-2019 flu season. Because it is important to start antiviral medication quickly, high-risk patients should contact a health care professional at the first signs of influenza symptoms, which include sudden onset of fever, aches, chills, and tiredness.

Department of Public Health and Human Services officials said in a statement Monday there aren't many flu cases in Montana right now, but the number is expected to increase in the coming weeks.
