"So far, influenza A (H3N2) viruses have been most common this season".

The Department for Public Health (DPH) reported Wednesday that influenza activity in Kentucky is now epidemic. KGOU's Nomin Ujiyediin reports. Flu season usually begins in September and ends in March.

"The age group most affected by (flu) is our 60 years and older population", the manager added. While there have been more cases than average, rates of the disease are not unusually high.

"We are not seeing it as much as everyone else", she said.

Despite concerns about the effectiveness of the vaccine, it is still recommended to get the flu shot.

Graves Gilbert Clinic is offering flu vaccines for free with insurance or for $45 without insurance, according to a joint email sent from Juliana Pace, practice manager at Graves Gilbert, and Steve Rey, director of intramural recreational sports. It is actually quite serious. "Just to kind of get ahead of the game", said Mata.

Avoid close contact with people who are sick. But they won't be injected with any live virus cells. "You may have to drive to get it".

OU Physicians still has hundreds of doses of the vaccine available, Franklin said.

Dr. David Rottinghaus, an emergency medicine specialist at Butler Memorial Hospital, said in a previous interview that this year's flu symptoms have appeared in the forms of fever, respiratory problems, muscle aches and sore throats. "This is because most persons with influenza do not go to the doctor or are not tested or reported". The vaccine isn't a cure she says, but it guarantees a shorter, less severe illness. This includes babies and young children, pregnant women, people with chronic health conditions and people 65 years and older. Most dogs who get the virus recover in a few weeks, but sometimes complications arise. The H3N2 virus mutates very quickly and so using the reference strand may not be an exact match but it's definitely helped decreased severity, symptoms length of time and those secondary pneumonia and sepsis as well. It can cause a nasty but relatively mild illness in many people, but more severe illnesses in others.

"Wash your hands when you get home", Spencer said.

"However, we are seeing people who are healthy be hospitalized", Halliburton-Foster said.
