'Predictably unpredictable' flu season winding down: doctor

Next Year You'll Be Able to Get Your Flu Shot Without a Needle

This year's sweeping flu season may be starting to wind down, but activity is still high throughout the country, according to the CDC's latest update.

The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, which provides advice and guidelines of vaccine-preventable diseases in the USA, voted to recommend placing the nasal spray on the Centers for Disease and Control and Prevention's list of recommended vaccines.

The FluMist had proven ineffective for working on the H1N1 strain two years ago.

This season started early and surged for months. This year's flu vaccine is estimated to be only 25 percent effective against that type.

There are other reasons besides eggs that flu vaccines might not work well. "That's why we say people need to get vaccinated-it equips your body to fight the virus".

The disadvantages are that it's a live vaccine, which means it can cause a sore throat or headache afterward.

But the shot has another surprising benefit you may not have heard about.

She said since the Panama Papers verdict, "all decisions have been taking to target a single personality" - Nawaz Sharif. The standoff was ended by the military, which removed both of them from office in 1999.

A TOTAL OF 102 people have died from flu between October 2017 and February 2018, according to figures from the Health Protection Surveillance Centre (HPSC). But CDC officials say they don't have enough data to say whether it consistently protects people better, and they do not know enough to recommend one vaccine over another. These visits made up 6.4% of trips to the doctor, down from 7.5% of visits the previous week. While individual flu cases are not reportable, the agency monitors flu activity through the Influenza-Like Illness (ILI) Sentinel Surveillance System, made up of healthcare providers in MS who report the percentage of patients with flu-like symptoms to a statewide database.
