McHenry County health official says flu season not at peak, encourages vaccinations

It has been a deadly flu season across Canada and Saskatchewan this year.

Mema also says they've seen more younger people die from flu-related complications this year. "This year's vaccine is a good match for circulating strains and it is not too late to get the vaccine".

These tests are rapid, like the name suggests but depending on the actual strain of the virus going around they can have varying success in properly identifying the flu.

A New Jersey child has died of the flu, marking the first pediatric flu death of the 2018-2019 season in the state.

In contrast, H1N1 tends to target children and younger adults more than seniors - and flu-trackers like Skowronski say this season is no exception.

Flu-like illnesses are trending above the county's historical five-year average. "We continue to recommend community members get their flu shot".

"We're really just now getting into our flu season", said Dr. Michelle Murti of Public Health Ontario, noting that the proportion of tests on people with respiratory bugs that came back positive for influenza had doubled to 16 per cent in the week ending December 29, compared to eight per cent the week before. "This year, the predominant strain we're seeing is H1N1", Shahab said.

Officials urge residents to get flu shots and stay home if sick.

The most effective way to protect against the flu is to get a dose of seasonal flu vaccine. Thirteen flu-related deaths have been reported nationally by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Experts say it takes about two weeks to build up immunity against the virus after getting vaccinated. County health officials just learned of the death late last week.

Cameron Kaiser said the victim had not received a flu shot and did not have any known pre-existing health disorders.
