Flu vaccine will protect against the most common flu viruses expected to circulate this year.
Previous year there was an estimated 900,000 hospitalizations, and more than 80,000 deaths, according to new data released by the CDC on Thursday. Following flu infection, moderate complications such as secondary ear and sinus infections can occur.
In recent years, influenza-related deaths were at a low of approximately 12,000 in the season of 2011-2012 and reached a high of 56,000 during the 2012-2013 flu season. "It was just a tremendous amount of disease".
Of the deaths, 180 were children. "We want White County residents to stay healthy this flu season, and getting a yearly flu vaccination is the best line of defense, "Trudy Noble, White County Health Unit Administrator, said".

There are two versions of the standard vaccine to consumers this year. The CDC has already released the list of approved flu vaccines this coming flu season, including nasal sprays. "Those who still believe otherwise or spread misinformation are unfortunately putting themselves and others at greater risk for serious health complications from influenza, including death".
Flu vaccination has become even more critical as the understanding of post-flu illness has increased over the past 10 years, said William Schaffner, M.D., medical director at the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases. "People who have experienced only hives after exposure to egg can get any licensed flu vaccine that is otherwise appropriate for their age and health. 2".
The CDC culled some other interesting information from the survey. "We may not have been making as much of a push for that in the past".
Experts are saying it is time to go ahead and get this year's flu vaccination. "That layer of added protection is important", she said.
There are a number of reasons why this last flu season was so bad. "We encourage everyone to come to the mass clinic or the local health unit to get their flu shot". Some seasons are mild.
Last season, more than 900,000 were hospitalized, double the number during many regular seasons. The season was driven by a kind of flu that tends to put more people in the hospital and cause more deaths, particularly among young children and the elderly.
About 40 percent of USA residents received a seasonal flu vaccination past year.
