That's the highest number since modern tracking began.
There were about 8,908 flu-related hospitalizations and among those, 619 deaths in Ontario last flu season.
No although people do tend to link the two the vaccine can not cause a flu illness. Influenza can often knock people out of work for several days - but County Health Officer Kim Mueller says there are ways to protect yourself from certain strains. The vaccine match wasn't exactly where we would like it to be.
According to the CDC, other vaccines include live attenuated influenza [LAIV], adjuvanted vaccine, intradermal influenza (flu) vaccine, cell-based flu vaccine, flu vaccination by jet injector and recombinant influenza (flu) vaccine.
The 2017-2018 flu season in the United States was said to be strenuous and widespread, as at least 30 children died before January of 2018 as a result of the flu. While some think it is seemingly harmless, the flu is quite deadly.
People who have an egg allergy may be at an increased risk of reaction to the the injectable flu vaccine because some flu vaccine are made using eggs. Both are effective in reducing the duration of flu symptoms and in preventing it altogether.
This year sees two new and more effective vaccines being introduced to improve the protection offered to those at risk: a vaccine for older people (aged 65 and over) called Fluad®, which has been specifically created to increase immunity in this age group, and a quadrivalent vaccine for people aged under 65 who have underlying health conditions and pregnant women. "Can't eat nothing. Can't hold nothing down", said Kelly Bippus, who doesn't go a season without getting a vaccine.

"One of the common ones (misconceptions) that we do get is that the flu shot will cause the flu, and that is incorrect", he said. Even though there's no convincing link at all between autism and vaccination, that still is circulating around the Internet.
It's safe. The flu shot is safe for people over the age of 6 months unless your doctor tells you it is not safe for you because of a medical condition. According to the Mayo Clinic, chronic sleep deprivation can contribute to illnesses, and studies show that people who are chronically sleep deprived are more prone to getting sick after being exposed to a virus.
The specific strains of flu virus that are most prominent change year over year, according to the CDC. If not for themselves, for the people around them.
Primary school children will get the vaccination at school, while pre-school children will receive it through their local GP surgery. Protect strangers you walk past on campus. That's why I'm so committed.
Healthy individuals may decline to get a flu shot because they do not feel vulnerable.
As this happens, your immune system develops antibodies against the influenza virus which is in the vaccine so that it will recognise it and and be able to fight it off if you are exposed to it again. It takes about two weeks for your body to develop flu antibodies, so I encourage you to get your flu shot as soon as possible. And then sometimes the vaccine may not be all that effective for some people.
