At least eight children in Florida died during the 2017-18 flu season, which was said to be the worst in decades.

He also says it's important to get the flu shot early because it can take two weeks for the vaccine to take effect.

Flu shots are a family tradition for Dr. Chris Sikora-and he wants them to be for other Albertans, too. And we know that the majority of people in the U.S.do not get vaccinated for influenza, despite it being recommended for everyone over the age of six months. "And of the children who died from the flu past year, about half of them were perfectly healthy children".

While the Health Department expects its shipment of the flu mist to arrive in the next week or so, the flu shot is in stock and available. The newborn to 4 years old age group had 29 reported cases for the first week of the flu season.

A total of 192 people in the South Zone were admitted to the hospital with lab-confirmed influenza, with seven deaths reported a year ago. And the vaccine has been altered to make it more effective.

The CDC said in a press release that as "pregnant women are at high risk of developing serious flu illness, including illness resulting in hospitalization", they are encouraged to get a flu shot. So even if you've never had the flu before or you think you're too healthy to get it, don't gamble because your luck may eventually run out. "This includes the elderly, young children, pregnant women and people with chronic medical conditions", explained Dr al-Khal.

Health professionals say it's time to get a flu vaccine.

Most parents incorrectly believe the flu shot can cause the flu, a new survey reveals. One-third said that the flu shot didn't work. "If you get your flu vaccine on Monday and on Wednesday you start sneezing, you did not start to develop the flu from the vaccine".

KDHE says its influenza reporting season run from September 1 through May 31 of following year. Plus, a child in Florida has already died from the flu.
