Dr. Larry Madoff, a director in the Massachusetts Department of Public Health said that in the vicinity, there has been an onslaught of premature flu season. It has arrived three to four weeks ahead of typical year. The flu season usually occurs in late January, February and March but this time it has arrive in the winter holiday season.
Flu season could be grave as well as early. Observing southern hemisphere last season is indicative of what will happen to us in our flu season. Australia has just recovered from a very bad flu year with extensive number of cases and high gravity. If you recall suddenly that you have forgotten to get the flu vaccine; it’s not too late.
However, as far as this year’s vaccine is concerned, health officials are totally clear that getting a vaccine is the only way to arrest the flu. Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and his team write that there is an increasing analysis over this year’s record level of flu in Australia, and it seems that vaccine was short of its remedy value; about 10 percent effective meaning it diminished the person’s probability by only 10 percent, opposed to supreme duress of flu there, known as H3N2. American flu vaccine utilizes the similar configuration.
A usual flu vaccine may be only 50 percent functional because the flu virus mutates so speedily that the strains in a vaccine do not comply with strains of the virus.
