8 new flu deaths reported in NC, totaling 328 for season

8 more flu deaths reported across North Carolina

With far fewer new influenza hospitalizations reported Thursday compared to the previous week, the flu season appears to be winding down statewide. The "stomach flu" as it's commonly known, is usually viral gastroenteritis, and is unrelated to either the common cold or influenza.

Go to tulsa-health.org for more information about the flu, including flu vaccination clinic locations and hours of operation, and accepted insurance and other methods of payment.

Myth #3: The flu shot causes flu.

The death toll for last week marked the first time since the week ending December 23 that there had been fewer than 10 deaths. "We always suspect it's going to be some of the major strains that we've seen in the last couple of decades, but you're also trying to predict if there are going to be any small micro-evolutions of these strains, something that can't be predicted".

"The influenza vaccine is recommended as the best way to prevent infection as long as the virus is circulating in the community", O'Brien said.

Queensland's chief health officer, Dr Jeannette Young, says it's important all children over six months be vaccinated this season and at the right time, from the end of April.

Two-time victor Jason Day opened his account with a 4 and 2 win over James Hahn as Jordan Spieth beat Charl Schwartzel 2 and 1. The loss snapped a string of seven consecutive wins dating back to his Round 1 victory a year ago over Webb Simpson.

One sign that the flu season is subsiding is that visitor restrictions for children 12 and under ended March 16 at Triad hospitals after being put in place January 12.

By comparison, for the week that ended February 3, there were 1,543 confirmed flu cases.

Another factor that enabled the flu to spread rapidly this year was that the vaccine was not a great match, Passaretti said.

Do you know the difference between a cold and the flu? "Most medical schemes now cover flu shots, so if you are on a medical scheme check with your pharmacy whether yours covers flu shots", says Maimin.

How do flu vaccines work?

The flu season started October 1. "We also placed masks, hand sanitizer, tissues and signs listing the signs and symptoms of the flu at each entrance". Avoid touching your face with unsanitized hands.
