And while Australian Flu has been sweeping across the nation, another strain - Japanese flu - has also become more prominent, with a huge rise in cases. Families of both report they were healthy, with no underlying medical conditions, leading up to their sudden deaths. However, flu spread is still only classed as "medium intensity" and symptoms are being seen at a third the level of the last severe season in 2010-11.

While vaccines are the best method of protection, they are not 100 percent effective.

"The flu virus changed, it mutated".

If flu is diagnosed in three percent of the home's total population, then precautions go up a notch.

The Minnesota Department of Health said Thursday that 503 people were hospitalized last week for influenza-related illness.

He said it's impossible to predict how each flu season will pan out.

It marks an increase from 46 people per 100,000 in the last week of 2017, and is four times higher than the figure recorded in the first week of previous year, when 24.6 people in every 100,000 had the virus.

ACMC still has an adequate amount of vaccine for established patients who haven't had their annual flu shot yet.

The "H3" strain of the flu is much more serious, especially for the elderly and children.

The symptoms of Japanese flu are similar to other flu strains, and can include a high temperature or fever, tiredness and weakness, headaches, general aches and pains and coughing and sneezing.

"They can carry influenza viruses not have as many symptoms", said Dr. David Priest, an infectious disease doctor with Novant Health, "So to keep our patients safe in buildings, we say it's best if you don't bring children into the hospital to visit".

Arizona hospitals statewide continue to experience long emergency room wait times due to the increased number of sick Arizonans.

In Montgomery County, officials confirmed one flu-related death.

"In general, this year appears to be typical of one where influenza Type A - H3N2 - dominates", Werker said, noting that particular flu disproportionally affects seniors and young children.

While this year's vaccine is less effective, experts say you should still get it.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention explained: "These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs".

Ehresmann noted that even in a perfectly matched year, the vaccine will not prevent every case of flu. Public health officials recommended people call different pharmacies if they have trouble finding Tamiflu medication.
