  • Fifth flu season death in San Diego region reported

"Not a major increase in absences but an increase for sure", Reilly said via email.

Meanwhile, Delaware's Division of Public Health (DPH) reported its first flu death of the season on December 13, 2017.

"While most people who do become ill with flu can be safely cared for at home, there are some symptoms that should trigger immediate emergency care", stated the release.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends yearly flu vaccinations for everyone over the age of six months, although there are rare exceptions.

Dr. John Cannell, founder of the Vitamin D Council, introduced the idea that a deficiency of the vitamin could be an underlaying cause of influenza. Irena Kenneley, associate professor of nursing at Case Western Reserve University, explains what the news means and why it's important for Americans to receive their annual flu vaccine.

These factors-combined with the administration's heavy cuts to the CDC and related programs that focus on everything from health and research to our overuse of antibiotics and drug-resistant infections-may be putting us just one mutation away from a flu pandemic.

Still, some people feel bad after a flu shot. Sometimes, the vaccine fails due to a mismatch of virus strains. To date three people, have died from the flu, 66 people have been hospitalized. "His death is a reminder of how serious the flu can be, especially among vulnerable populations", said DPH director Karyl Rattay, MD, MS.

The spike last week is within about 100 cases of the most reported in a single week for the past five flu seasons, according to city data. Opponents say the potential for complications does not make the risk worthwhile.
