Flu Shot More Effective Than Nasal Vaccine

Flu Season Hits In The US After A Slow Start Flu Season Got Off to a Slow Start. But Now It's Widespread in Almost Half the Country

The CDC says that there is high flu activity in Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Utah and Virginia at this point, along with New York City. Last year, flu season was one of the worst ever on record, with an estimated 80,000 Americans dying from flu-related symptoms. While doctors believe this year won't be as a severe, there is still a while to go before we can see if these predictions ring true.

The viruses that have so far been detected this flu season in China were mainly influenza virus A subtypes H1N1 and H3N2, and only in a tiny minority of cases B virus lineages Victoria and Yamagata, data showed.

"We were able to better describe vaccine effectiveness in age groups that the individual studies were not able to due to small sample sizes", said Jessie Chung, lead author of the study and an epidemiologist in the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Influenza Division. "It's not too late to go and get your flu shot". However, that is a deadly flu strain for children, to some extent.

The southern USA has also been hit particularly hard, covering a swath of 10 states starting from SC and reaching all the way to New Mexico, Utah, and California.

The flu strain predominantly affecting the country is known as H1N1, and is often referred to as "swine flu". There were just a lot more cases.

There are two ways of protecting yourself and your family from the flu: via a shot or a nasal spray. The excellent news would be that the specialists predict a harmless influenza season this year.
