The infection transmission may last for a long period among the children, as well as people with immune deficiency.

In Australia, Influenza A (H3N2) was the predominant flu virus this year, and 81 percent of the deaths were caused by that strain.

Influenza can lead to pneumonia and blood infections. The symptoms of Influenza start to show two days after exposure to the virus: a cough, sore throat, runny nose or blockage, body and muscle aches, headaches, tiredness, vomiting and diarrhoea in some people and especially in children. Since 2010, 200,000 to 710,000 people have been hospitalized annually due to the flu, and 12,000 to 56,000 died each year too, according to the CDC.

For us, fall and winter months are the prime time for the influenza virus, but the timing is very unpredictable and can vary in different parts of the country and from season to season. It also helps to prevent spreading flu to your family and other people.

Vaccines in the United States this season are created to protect against two A strains (H1N1 and H3N2) and up to two B strains (B/Victoria lineage and B/Yamagata lineage), according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The influenza (flu) season is upon us and Trinity County Public Health urges everyone 6 months of age and older to get their flu vaccination. The flu can cause severe illness and life-threatening respiratory complications.

Despite the risks, some Ferris students feel that they don't need the flu vaccine.

Flu shots are available at clinics throughout the St. Louis area. Call ahead to know what your clinic's policy is.

"Getting vaccinated is the best protection against flu illness", said CDPH state health officer Karen Smith, MD.

A person might also get flu by touching a surface or object that has flu virus on it.
