How to keep kids healthy during flu season

A higher risk of complications from the flu is possible for children six to 59 months of age, pregnant women, people 65 years or older, and people with chronic health problems.

During the week ended January 13, 10 children died from flu, bringing total pediatric deaths to 30 for the 2017-18 flu season.

"If you're having any symptoms, we are more than happy to see you here at the health center". There also have been more flu deaths than typical.

The most aggressive strain of the flu this season, identified as Influenza A virus subtype H3N2, is partly to blame. It often takes shape when there is a new virus that can't be defeated with a vaccine.

It's why Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis used his flu shot as an opportunity to spread awareness.

Jernigan said this year's vaccine "leaves a lot to be desired, and we're very well aware we need to have better flu vaccines". Influenza A was most frequently reported by clinical labs and Influenza A (H3) was most frequently reported by the public health lab.

"You know, flu is serious and it's widespread every year, but we've never had it hit like it has our campuses this year", school superintendent Jill Siler said. Researchers now tell that the flu virus can get spread in the air and can make you a patient when you simply breathe in such environment. The vaccine, which takes two weeks to be fully effective, has four flu strains.

With the number of hospitalizations down this past week, the flu season may be peaking in Georgia and across the country but could continue for many more weeks, according to officials with the Georgia Department of Public Health and CDC.

Courtney Sheeley, communications specialist for the South Health District of the Georgia Department of Public Health, said individuals who have the flu should stay home if they are ill to prevent the flu from spreading. Avoid touching your mouth, nose and eyes.

People who are not extremely sick are encouraged to see their personal physician or visit urgent care. It is also denoted that the virus can get contaminated for other reasons as well. If diagnosed with the flu, stay home until the fever has been gone for 24 hours without taking a fever-reducing medicine.
