Could be the worst flu season

Dr. Thomas Frieden director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention receives a flu shot

As for the flu shot, it's still not a waste to get one. CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends that live attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV), also known as the "nasal spray" flu vaccine, should not be used during the 2017-2018 flu season.

"It doesn't look like it's substantiated yet, and it's too early in the season to even come up with that", Family Physician Doctor Randy Conover, said.

The Arkansas Department of Health said as of the end of November there have been close to 200 confirmed cases of the flu since October.

Leaders Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich have already qualified for the last-16 with 15 and 12 points respectively. The Champions League group stage wraps up this week, with 16 teams advancing to the knockout stage of the tournament.

"It can be due to a change in what's circulating in the human population, or a change in the vaccine that leads to a mismatch" between the virus and the vaccine, Hirsch said. These remedies can help you recover quicker, and can potentially prevent you from being hospitalized with flu complications. "We can't make a judgment on how effective it is at this point", said Rebb.
