All Tennessee county health departments are holding Flu Shot Friday clinics on Friday, from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. Stomach symptoms such as vomiting and diarrhea are more common among children than adults. "We're still at the peak of flu season".
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, hospitalizations are the highest they've been since the CDC started a new way of measuring them in 2010, the local health department said in Wednesday's news release.
"Although not 100 percent effective, the flu shot may provide partial immunity and lessen the chance of developing severe illness", said Ferrell. In the USA, cases of influenza started to rise in early November 2017 and increased sharply from December 2017 through February 3, 2018.
It is no surprise that that rise in the occurrence and spread of the flu coincided with a decrease in the proportion of the US population that received the vaccination. Those who still get the flu should stay home from school or work to avoid spreading the virus.
This study does not include data on how well the vaccine prevented deaths of serious flu requiring hospitalization, the CDC pointed out. She shared she recommends individuals get the flu shot because when a vaccine exists to prevent an illness, it should be utilized.
Even with reduced effectiveness, the vaccine is worth getting. But one must weigh the costs of refusing the vaccine with the potential benefits.
The CDC researchers estimated that flu vaccine has cut the risk of flu by about one-third among those vaccinated.
According to estimates, the vaccine is only 25-percent effective against the H3N2 strand, and up to 59-percent effective in children under eight-years-old.
The health unit is urging the public to understand influenza is in the community wherever people congregate. The agency reports the influenza A strain of H3N2 has accounted for more almost 75 percent of all illnesses, "but other influenza viruses are also circulating". Again, VE varied by age: 78% (CI, 63% to 87%) among those under 18 years of age; 51% (CI, 20% to 70%) among those 18 to 64 years; and 34% (CI, -96% to 78%) among those 65 and older. While to the average, healthy college student the flu means missing class for a few days, for so many it poses a much higher risk. "And H3N2 is causing a lot of the illness and a lot of the deaths that are occurring this year".
Vaccine effectiveness is tricky to measure, because there is no way to know how many vaccinated people never got ill at all.
