Arizona Flu Cases Below 2017 Leve But Above Average

Not enough Canadians get the flu vaccine, says health officials

Not enough Canadians get the flu vaccine, says health officials

On average, influenza sends 12,200 people to hospital and kills 3,500 people every year in Canada. In an effort to reduce those numbers, health officials have set a target of getting 80 per cent of the population vaccinated.

In 2015-16, there were 272 confirmed cases of influenza A. The next year, this number slightly increased in the south zone to 278.

The annual flu season has hit Calgary sooner than the rest of the province. The free flu vaccine is available to all people living, working or attending school in Ontario, who are six months of age or older. It was the disease's highest death toll in at least four decades.

"The strains we're seeing are in the vaccine, so we're really encouraging people to get immunized", he stressed.

The measures, which are in place at Heathrow in London and throughout Japan, will be introduced at other airports early next week. Both airlines said they should have done more to ensure their pilots exercise proper self-control regarding alcohol consumption.

It's not clear why so few people get the immunization. You can not get the flu from the vaccination. "We find it a great place to live, a great lifestyle for people and the great technology and workers that we have access to here in Holly Springs".

According to a company statement, the expansion will enable the pharmaceutical firm to expand its portfolio of vaccines, including cell-based and adjuvant vaccines, as early as possible each flu season while escalating the state of readiness in the event of a deadly pandemic. There are many strains of the influenza virus and hundreds of researchers in a hundred countries work to try to predict which strains will emerge in different countries.

"The peak of flu season really doesn't peak until January or February, so really it's good to go ahead and get that flu shot even now", Carpenter said. Additionally, two deaths have been attributed to the flu this season-including one here in Lexington.

Dr. Iris Gorfinkel explains why she says it's imperative that everyone get the influenza vaccination.
