Flu vaccine may protect against heart attacks

Across the USA, the number of people testing positive for the most prevalent flu strain, Flu A, peaked weeks ago and continues to see a rapid decline.

It's important to note that the state health department only tracks flu deaths in pregnant women and children.

The health department reported the latest child death on Tuesday.

On Monday, Harris County Public Health announced the county's first flu-related death of a child this season.

AAP MLA Prakash Jarwal taken into custody by Delhi Police

The flu season appears to be winding down for East Tennessee as well as most of the U.S.

It's highly recommended that children between 2 and 5 should get the flu shot, especially children who are born with various medical conditions such as diabetes, heart conditions, and lung disease. "Our bill will help give our scientific community the support they need to research and ultimately develop a universal flu vaccine that can help our communities avoid deadly flu strains like the one we've seen this year". If you are experiencing fever, runny or stuffy nose, sore throat, cough, muscle aches and headaches, visit your doctor immediately, and take antivirals if prescribed. The most recent numbers (Feb. 4-10) showed an upward trend in new lab-confirmed cases with more than 1,000 in the week.

However, some health experts believe the flu shot could be like taking high blood pressure medicine.
