Arkansas, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Virginia reported widespread activity during the week ending December 2, the surveillance report showed.

Some studies of hospitalized flu patients "have suggested that those who were vaccinated had less severe illness than those who were not vaccinated", he said.

After a slow start in October, flu season in the United States is gaining speed, particularly in the South.

The school's students and staff were administered some other antiviral agents, and the school was also fumigated, following the detection of the swine flu.

Earlier research estimated the death toll to range anywhere from 250,000-500,000 deaths from all illnesses related to the flu.

The Grey Bruce Health Unit announced in mid-November that the flu had arrived for the season, after a laboratory confirmed that an Owen Sound resident had tested positive for Influenza A.

Dr. Robert Caldas, Southcoast Health Chief Medical Officer, said that St. Luke's, Charlton Memorial and Tobey hospitals have diagnosed more than 40 cases so far, but the peak of flu season has yet to arrive.

There have been 612 influenza-related hospitalizations reported, and no reports of pediatric deaths from influenza. So mention this to your doctor when you go for your vaccine! "People who are immune compromised, the elderly, and the young need this protection". Because while the influenza may be at best uncomfortable for some people, it is deadly for some. People can also become infected by touching surfaces or objects contaminated with influenza viruses and then touching their eyes, mouth or nose. One false misconception is that an individual can get flu from the vaccine. Vaccines are available at the county health department every weekday, from 8 to 11 a.m. and from 1 to 3 p.m. Call the health department at 812-481-7050 for information. Also, those who get the shot and contract influenza A (H3N2) will likely recover faster than those who don't get vaccinated.
