	5 dead more than 300 hospitalized in Georgia as flu spreads health officials say

DPH is reporting "widespread" flu activity for the fourth consecutive week this flu season.

Flu vaccines are available at the health department and at many healthcare providers, urgent care facilities and pharmacies.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 13 kids have died from the flu so far this season, while in California, dozens of adults under 65 have been killed.

The Public Health Department released its latest figures on influenza Thursday, reporting that as of January 6, a total of 1,015 people came down with the seasonal infectious respiratory ailment, and 456 needed to be hospitalized.

The average age of the other 34 who have died of the flu is 75 years old, cabinet officials said. Day said Friday the most recent total he had for influenza cases in Kentucky ran through December 30, when 1,411 cases were confirmed. "The flu season typically runs until late spring, so it's not too late to get vaccinated".

Haggie says there are suggestions that one of the four strains of the virus contained in this year's influenza vaccine is less than flawless.

When it comes to how the developers missed the mark with the vaccine, it's largely due to doctors at the World Health Organization having to try to predict what strains of the flu will be prominent in an upcoming flu season. It's your best chance of preventing the flu.

Patients should plan for a a visit of about 30 to 45 minutes to get the shot even with the appointment, she said, because they ask for patients to remain for a period after the shot to make sure there's no adverse reaction to it before they're released.

"A less than ideal match may result in reduced vaccine effectiveness against the flu virus that is different from what is in the flu vaccine, but it can still provide some protection against flu illness".

The CDC is warning that all high-risk patients with flu symptoms should be treated with antiviral drugs as soon as possible. "Stay at home if they have the flu or flu-like symptoms and to avoid contact with others".

The most recent numbers from the Department of Health show things in this province seem fairly normal in terms of the amount of influenza being spread.

CDPH closely tracks influenza and posts updated information on the CDPH Influenza website at the end of the work week.

Two children were among the 36 flu-related deaths reported in Kentucky this season, according to the Cabinet for Health and Family Services.
