Two children die from the flu in Wichita

Spokane County flu cases reach record numbers

The County Health Department offers walk-in flu clinics at the Nick Sterio Public Health Clinic, 70 Bunner St., Oswego, weekdays from 9 to 11 a.m. and 1 to 3 p.m.

The acting CDC director said many people are concerned about this flu season and have seen heart-breaking stories of those who have lost loved ones. It indicates that there has been one influenza-associated pediatric death in NY so far this season. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends a yearly flu vaccine as the first and most important step in protecting against flu viruses. Among the 48 states for which information was available, Arkansas' percentage was the fifth-highest, behind Kentucky, Texas, Alabama and Louisiana.

Call SHAC at 505-277-3136 to schedule an appointment for a flu shot. "This year has shown a heightened flu season across the board". Two of those deaths were children, and most were elderly people. "But even if it's not 100 percent effective, people who get the vaccine tend to have less severe illness and less duration (of illness)", he told the Herald.

Yakima Health District officials say the number of reported influenza cases was 176 as of this past week, down from 205 the week before.

Due to the high level of influenza cases in the region and statewide, the University of Maryland Shore Regional Health is implementing a revised visitor policy to protect the health and safety of patients, staff, visitors and the community during flu season.

Alexis Sanchez gets 16-month prison term for tax offences in Spain
This is not the first time a high-profile footballer has been prosecuted by the Spanish courts for tax evasion. Sanchez moved to Barcelona from Italian side Udinese in 2011 and joined Arsenal three years later.

The CDC recommends a flu shot each year for nearly everyone age 6 months and older.

Children less than 6 months of age are too young to be vaccinated, but anyone in close with them, including parents, siblings, grandparents, child care workers and health care personnel, need to get a flu shot.

Medical professionals do say that those who have had sever allergic reactions to the flu shot in the past should not get it again, however.

Even more, more than 7% of all the recently hospitalized patients in NY were related to the flu influenza.

The schools have asked parents to keep sick children out of school until they are fever-free for 24 hours.
