The deaths of the two boys are the first reported flu fatalities in children in OH since the flu season started in October.

Dallas County Health and Human Services said that one of the most recent deaths involved an 87-year-old resident of Irving, the second was a 98-year-old resident of DeSoto and the third was a 79-year-old resident of Dallas.

Lyndy Stone, Shannon Medical Center's director of marketing, said unlike other areas in Texas or around the US, no deaths have been directly related to the flu in San Angelo.

Flu cases spiked the most in the South with the number expected to rise as we head into the peak of flu season.

Along with the flu, doctors say they are also seeing an increase of Respiratory Syncytial Virus, or RSV, in adults. "But, in general, all of the health care professionals are vaccinated", he said.

The North County health care entity will offer the immunizations at seven community clinic sessions on a first come, first served basis, Palomar Health said.

Some of the symptoms of influenza include fever, cough, sore throat, runny/stuffy nose, headache, muscle aches and extreme fatigue. "By the time this flu season ends, we'll actually be prepping the flu shots for next season".

Not all flu cases in Britain, or anywhere else, are being caused by just one flu virus.

What the new tax withholding tables mean for your take-home pay
The new guidelines incorporate lower tax rates that were central to the tax overhaul from Congress's December tax overhaul. According to the IRS , it generally takes companies about a month to integrate new withholding guidelines.


Flu vaccines have been less effective in fighting H3N2 than other influenza flu viruses, making this particular strain more hard to contain.

Each year, when scientists put together the flu shot, they take an educated guess on what strains of the flu virus will best protect the most patients.

All three victims were over the age of 65 and had influenza A, said Tara Perkins, the Health District's director of nursing.

During the past couple of weeks the inpatient volume at local hospitals has increased dramatically due to the flu or flu-like symptoms.

"Often people will wait for a few days before they seek medical attention, so after the first few days, the point is moot because they'll start to feel better", Townes says.

Sentara family medicine and internal medicine practices have the vaccines for $75 out of pocket, but individuals without insurance can get the shot for $37.50, according to Sentara spokeswoman Kelsea Smith.

The advice from Werker, Shahab and others is to stay home when you're sick, cough into your sleeve and always wash your hands.
