The number of flu-related deaths in Manitoba has almost doubled in the past week, now surpassing last year's total.

According to both Dr. Sims and the CDC, that claim is TRUE.

"The flu season tends to peak between December and February".

While seasonal flu usually circulates annually, this year's breakout has added to the misery of an NHS now under extreme winter pressures.

Jernigan said it looks more [as though] the H3N2 portion of the vaccine is performing here [as] it did a year ago, when it was 34 percent effective at preventing infection. But it also has an older population, so those who contract influenza are more at risk. In a normal year, about 2-6% of people who get the flu are sick enough to see a doctor - but this year, the percentage has already risen above 13%, meaning that people are feeling very ill. The majority of the cases (136) involved people aged 65 and over.

That's just one reason why officials are asking people to visit their primary doctor or urgent care instead of hospitals. In the same time frame a year ago, Callaway County had 37 confirmed cases of influenza A.

That last fact has had many people wondering if they should still get a flu shot.

"So the interesting piece with 2014-15 was, we truly didn't have a vaccine".

"One of the concerns we do have is we want to keep our patients safe", said Matthew.

Across the NHS, 59% of staff have had the vaccine but in some trusts less than 3 in 10 staff are protected.

But the Frenchman was adamant that he's committed to seeing out his contract. "I've never questioned his commitment or attitude". Wenger also dismissed speculation that he could leave the club himself this summer if Arsenal have another disappointing season.

Los Angeles County health officials this week reported 36 deaths this flu season, compared to 13 people for the same time a year ago.

Most flu symptoms can be managed in these care settings without visiting an emergency room.

But flu season took Manitoba by surprise, beginning in November this year. Officials said the number of cases are up by about 50 percent compared to a year ago.

Idaho has had 23 flu-related deaths so far.

The use of Tamiflu or Oceltamivir, is climbing, according to the report, with 151 dispensed this past week, up from 108 the week before. We need to be careful about these words and focus more on absolute risks.

The strain of influenza that is spreading the most is called H3N2. "I don't know if it's the shot that helps or my healthy living".

Sky News contacted six branches of Boots across the United Kingdom - in London, Birmingham, Sheffield, Leeds, Glasgow and Belfast - but none were able to provide flu jabs this weekend.

Also, the vaccine might not have been a good match in Australia, local health officials say.

"We're not seeing anything that's alarmingly high", Allen said.

In any year, even when you're vaccinated, you can get the flu. "You don't expect to wake up with sniffles and two days later find yourself in a medically induced coma". They say it can protect you from the other strains, and it can help you if do end up getting sick. We can worry about it all we want but the truth of the matter is we cannot get it.
