A CDC committee backed AstraZeneca's Flu Mist for use next flu season

According to the latest weekly report by Alberta Health, Edmonton Zone has administered almost 400,000 influenza vaccinations to date, the second highest amount following Calgary Zone.

Given elevated flu activity in the United States, combined with the high travel season to the Caribbean, it is important that people take the necessary steps now, to protect themselves and their loved ones from the flu. "There are some reports about more people coming in with influenza like symptoms".

Rumpf continued: "Also this year, most authorities would agree that the flu seems to have started somewhat earlier".

In this flu season so far, 231 flu-related deaths and 15,135 cases have been reported in San Diego County, with 87 percent of deaths involving people at least 65 years of age.

The CDC's FluView update was published online February 23. 170 senior citizens have died this season. This rate is higher than the anticipated 7.4% pneumonia- or flu-related deaths estimated for the week. It is 25 percent effective against the dominant strain this season, influenza A H3N2, but 67 percent effective against H1N1 and 42 percent effective against influenza B strains.

Werker said "it's likely that influenza B has peaked", but added that she would like to see next week's data before she could be confident about the trend. It hasn't been recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control for two years because doctors said it wasn't that effective compared to the flu shot. "And they think they have solved the problem", he said.

"It's not necessarily worse, the worst that we have seen by any stretch".
