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.

The former National Basketball Association star was last seen alive on July 18, 2010 when he left the home of his ex-wife. Wright had at least five gunshot wounds to his body, two to the head, two to the chest, and one to the right forearm.

"I think that the key preventative strategy, regardless of how effective that vaccine is going to be this year in the United States, is to get vaccinated", says Dr. Lopez. However, the flu vaccine was only 10% effective against that strain, meaning it reduced a person's risk of infection by 10%, according to a paper published in the public health journal Eurosurveillance.

"Every year, there are deaths from influenza and pneumonia, and certainly, influenza is something to be concerned about", Sweeney said.

So far a total of 671 cases statewide for the season, 20 of which were from Coconino County, and as you might expect reported cases are only a small percentage of the actual cases of the flu we see people suffering from within our community...

"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.
