Influenza numbers in Kane County on the rise
Birmingham area hospitals are at or over the normal capacity due to a "major flu situation" in the area, health department officials said. "Last year, Mohave County experienced a similar spike in activity as this same time, and it did end up being our peak activity".
FMC Chief Nursing Officer Helen Harding the high numbers are causing more people to visit the hospital's emergency department.
In Denton County the demand for the flu vaccine has increased in the past month.
The increase in cases caused the hospital on Tuesday to issue visitation restrictions until the cases drop. H3N2-dominant flu seasons are associated with more severe illness, especially among children and older adults. She said in order for the CDC to produce the correct vaccination, it must correctly predict what type of flu strain will be prevalent.
Health officials said 36 people have died from complications of the flu in Los Angeles County during the current flu season.
Of course, officials say it's never too late to get a flu shot.
"We like to give shots in groups or herds", Harding said. De Lota said feeling vaccine reactions for a few days is nothing compared to getting the actual flu.
Ibuprofen Use Linked to Compensated Hypogonadism in Males The study also investigated several other hormones produced by the testes that were found to be reduced by ibuprofen. It is known to increase the risk of heart attacks and stroke if taken regularly in high doses for a long time.
The antiviral medications work best when started within two days of the onset of symptoms; even after two days, these medications can be beneficial.
Anyone who is particularly at risk - including the elderly and those with heart and/or lung conditions - should seek immediate medical attention if they show flu-like symptoms.
We also reached out to the health departments in Benton, Carroll, Clinton, Fountain and Warren counties.
The clinic is experiencing record-high patient volumes, which means people can expect longer wait times, sometimes up to four hours, said Jennifer Rohler, manager of KRMC emergency services. But Harding said that is not the case at FMC.
"Given the mix of influenza viruses circulating right now and more could still circulate later on in the ensuing months, we still recommend influenza vaccine for Canadians over six months of age", she said.
