Health officials say the deaths of two people due to influenza are the first flu-related deaths in Oklahoma this season.

There are not any risks associated with developing a universal flu vaccine.

The article is available online from the Vaccine journal's website. "There should be a flu vaccine out there that is suitable for everybody in that age range".

Researchers discovered an overlooked mutation in two of the viral strains used in the vaccine. In a press release published by the NIAID, it was explained that numerous factors can influence the effectiveness of the influenza vaccine; in this case, the perspective's authors believe manufacturing could have led to the increased risks Australians faced during their 2017 winter.

Tis the season - the flu season.

Also, experts suggest getting the flu shot.

Myth 4. Flu season is annoying but can't cause major harm.

The vaccine this year may not offer much protection at all.

According to health experts, this year is expected to be one of the worst in a while.

"Just because it was the predominant strain in Australia six months ago doesn't mean it will be the predominant strain here", Dr. Charles Bregier, with Novant Health, said. Not true. Although most people will feel generally terrible, older people, young kids, pregnant women and people with underlying health issues are at a greater risk for complications from the flu. Some people never show any signs of flu symptoms and may act as carriers of the virus, infecting their loved ones.

The single best way to prevent seasonal flu is to get vaccinated each year, but good health habits like covering your cough and washing your hands often can help stop the spread of germs and prevent respiratory illnesses like the flu.
