Lake County reports 7 flu-related deaths this season

Lake County reports 7 flu-related deaths this season

Health department clinics across the state are providing vaccines at no charge.

Denton County reported its sixth and seventh flu deaths this season. Of those deaths, 100 have been recorded since December 31. This season, officials say they have seen the highest surge of emergency visits stemming from flu-like symptoms in the past four years.

Older adults, people with chronic health conditions, pregnant women and young children are more vulnerable to the flu.

"The laboratory test that we use for influenza is not 100 percent flawless, since it depends on how the specimen is collected and processed, and how far advanced the disease is when the specimen is taken". Get more information about the flu at this link.

Local hospitals continue to enforce temporary visitor restrictions due to high flu activity. Busy schedules and our tendency to confuse the seriousness of influenza with the inconvenience of the "stomach flu" will work against us next year as well, but the virus causing influenza will be back again.

In patients between 50 and 64 years old, 17 deaths have been reported, while 12 people between the ages of 18 and 49 have died from the flu this season. A map of where to find the vaccine is online at.

"This is a very hard season", Dr. Anne Schuchat, acting director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said in a conference call with reporters last week. "There are others who say free or not they wont be getting a flu shot this year". "The vaccine may also reduce the severity of symptoms if you catch the flu in spite of being vaccinated, and it is not too late to get the vaccine".

"Some of the serious consequences of influenza are bacterial pneumonias". It is suggested that it is best to take anti-flu shots as a precaution to avoid getting sick entirely, but it is highly recommended that people take shots as opposed to nasal spray flu vaccine.

Influenza is a viral infection of the nose, throat, bronchial tubes and lungs.

"That means people who were vaccinated should not consider themselves invincible for this season", said lead researcher Dr. Danuta Skowronski, an infectious diseases expert at the BC Center for Disease Control.
