flu shot. The number and percentage of positive tests for influenza B also remains higher for this time of year compared to the same period during the past seven seasons, with five times the number of cumulative detection compared to the same period during the 2014-15, the report adds.

Delaware's Division of Public Health is reporting the first flu-related death of the season.

Flu season goes from October until May each year.

"As the flu season continues, the Tulsa Health Department encourages all individuals six months and older to get a flu vaccination", the department said in a news release.

There have also been 612 influenza-related hospitalizations reported in the state.

Cases of flu and related illnesses have been reported as widespread in MA based on geographical cases in recent weeks.

The viruses attacked by the vaccine are chosen far before the flu season because it takes a while to grow the necessary material in the millions of eggs needed.

"We're seeing a pretty steep increase in influenza activity across the United States but especially in the south", co-author Brendan Flannery, an epidemiologist in the CDC's flu division, told CNN. Likewise, the 257 hospitalizations since the recognized start of the flu season mark a significant increase over the 83 to this point a year ago.

Visit www.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.

"The Health Department believes regardless of the effectiveness of the vaccine, you still receive protection from vaccine", Oeding said. Because while the influenza may be at best uncomfortable for some people, it is deadly for some.

There are many common misconceptions with influenza and the flu shot circulating throughout the internet and social media.

To fight the flu, the CDC and local health department recommends getting a flu vaccine, taking everyday preventive actions to stop the spread of germs and taking flu antiviral drugs if your doctor prescribes them. "It may well be that somebody got vaccinated on Monday and on Wednesday they got a cold, and what they'll do is attribute that cold to having received the vaccine, but there's no connection".
