Reported Flu Cases Continue in All Areas of Virginia

"Flu is incredibly complex and hard to predict and this season is a somber reminder of why flu is one of the world's greatest public health challenges, said Dr. Anne Schuchat, the principle deputy director at the CDC, in a teleconference briefing". Kids are especially vulnerable, as are baby boomers, according to CDC officials, although nobody knows why.

Pneumonia vaccine is also available for adults at the flu clinics; Pneumovax at a cost of $101 and Prevnar 13 at a cost of $185.

The CDC said this year's flu season is the worst the nation has seen since the 2009 swine flu pandemic.

In Kansas, influenza has been the direct cause of death in 68 people and a contributing cause of death in 32 people, according to the February 5 KDHE report.

This has been a particularly bad flu season all across the country.

Dr. Castellaw says the elderly, young and those with a chronic medical condition are most susceptible. Those who are sick with the flu are generally contagious beginning one day before their symptoms begin and for approximately one week after their symptoms began. Anyone can get the flu year round, although flu activity tends to be the highest from December-March. Busy schedules and our tendency to confuse the seriousness of influenza with the inconvenience of the "stomach flu" will work against us next year as well, but the virus causing influenza will be back again. The North Alabama district has reported the most flu-related deaths so far this flu season with 12 people reported to have died.

The Pennsylvania Department of Health said the number of cases in Allegheny County from October 1 to February 3 totaled 6,286, compared with 5,252 for the previous reporting period ending January 27.
