It is tough to predict the severity of flu seasons, but health professionals look to Australia, which now is ending its flu season, to get a sense of what to expect in the U.S.

Seasonal flu infection peaks between June and October in India, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam, with India, Thailand and Vietnam registering an additional minor peak from December to February, shows World Health Organization research.

Normally flu strikes in winter, when children are crowded into classrooms and the air is cold and dry - ideal for transmitting the influenza virus. "So by the time we pick a version of the virus to make into a vaccine and put it into production, it might take six to eight months and in that time the virus might change". Symptoms include fever, headache, extreme tiredness, dry cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose and muscle aches.

Most of the almost 100 people killed by the flu in IN a year ago were over the age of 65. Children and young adults so far are making up the largest percentage of cases reported through the network.

"Even with influenza vaccine effectiveness in the range of 30 percent to 60 percent, influenza vaccination prevents millions of infections and medical visits and tens of thousands of influenza-associated hospitalizations".

The Wyoming Department of Health recently issued a news release that indicated that flu activity reports in the State are beginning to escalate.

In spite of this, a report by The New England Journal of Medicine declared that the 2017-18 medicine for this flu can only be 10% as effective as previous anticipation. In 2014-15, when more than 80 per cent of the circulating H3N2 viruses characterized differed from the vaccine virus, vaccine effectiveness was 13 per cent.

To improve protection, scientists have begun identifying novel vaccine antigens, platforms and manufacturing strategies to improve vaccine design.

"Influenza activity in the United States ... has been increasing since early November", the researchers wrote in their report.

Ryan Ades, a Meijer pharmacist, said that is all the more reason to get vaccinated.

Each flu vaccine protects against either three or four different strains of flu, but one component, the H3N2 strain, seems especially weak.

"It is always better to get vaccinated than not to get vaccinated", Fauci said.

"If you're over 6 months old and you're breathing, you should get a flu shot", McMahan said. At this time previous year, the rate of flu hospitalizations was just 1.3 hospitalizations per 100,000 people.
