Flu Case Numbers Prompt Vaccination Reminder First pediatric flu death of 2018-2019 season confirmed in MI

The County Health and Human Services Agency publishes the weekly Influenza Watch report, which tracks key flu indicators and summarizes influenza surveillance in the region.

Influenza is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. Although Michigan has only experienced localized flu activity over the past few weeks, MDHHS strongly recommends that everyone 6 months of age and older get a seasonal flu vaccine.

"It's too soon to make any assessment about this season's severity, however since this H1N1 virus emerged in 2009, it has been associated with significant illness and severe illness among young children", the CDC said.

This is the sixth flu-related death in the state for this season.

Across the nation, six flu-associated deaths have been reported in kids.

The Wyoming Department of Health said Thursday the number of flu cases so far this season remains low, but they're beginning to pick up. Drugs anti-flu (antiviral drugs), existing in warehouses in medical institutions, are used only on prescription, in accordance with national clinical protocols.Campaign on immunization against influenza began in October of this year, when the Ministry of health purchased and distributed to public health institutions 30 thousand doses of flu vaccine. The flu vaccine is inactive and can not cause the infection.

The Regulation for Prevention of Influenza Transmission, which mandates that unvaccinated healthcare workers in state health department-regulated facilities wear masks, first went into effect in the 2013-24 flu season. To keep from getting sick, officials advise people to: "eat well, keep their feet dry [and] avoid crowds".

Vaccination is especially important for people who are at high risk of developing serious complications from influenza.
