Dr Mary Ramsay, head of immunisation at PHE, said: "We are working with AstraZeneca and NHS England and [NHS] Improvement to ensure that all eligible children get their flu vaccine as soon as possible".

Residents can also get the flu shot through their health care providers or their local pharmacy. Quadrivalent flu vaccine is still available, but the high dose flu vaccine is sold out.

"This is exactly the time we want to make sure we're taking advantage of getting the flu shot so that we've got our immunity in place and we know how to fight the virus", Pedati said.

Dr. Katrina Pollock, from the Department of Infectious Disease at Imperial, said, "The current recommendation is for people at risk of serious illness from flu, including people living with HIV, to receive a vaccine containing four influenza strains to protect them from seasonal flu". Idaho and Nevada reported localized flu activity, while Wyoming is reporting only sporadic activity.

Of flu positives at clinical labs, 75.4% were influenza B and 24.6% were influenza A. So far, 63% of the flu viruses and 75% of the influenza B positives this season have been from the south and southeast regions.

I wonder if this year will have an increase of people catching the flu. Preventing the spread of influenza is important in protecting infants, who can not be vaccinated immediately following birth. Australia's season began two months earlier than normal, and was particularly severe at the start.

The flulike illness activity map, which also tracks outpatient visits, shows high activity levels for Louisiana and Puerto Rico, low activity for nine states-most of them in the southeast-and minimal activity elsewhere.
