Get ready, some medical experts are predicting the worst flu season in history
Medical experts are bracing for one of the worst flu seasons in history.
- The main flu strain for 2017-18 is known as the H3N2 virus, and it is more deadly than the swine flu.
- The flu is now widespread in about 46 states, reports the CDC.
- The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and other organizations are calling for the development of a universal vaccine.
While no public health officials are declaring the current flu to be a pandemic, this strain is historically more difficult to fight than others. Australia, for instance, just came through its flu season, reporting record-high numbers of cases of the same H3N2 virus and higher-than-average numbers of hospitalizations and deaths.
Getting an annual flu vaccine is the best way to defend yourself, your family, friends, and coworkers from the flu. Flu vaccination can lessen flu illnesses, doctors’ visits, and missed days at work or school due to flu, as well as save you flu-related hospitalizations. People at high risk of the flu virus are older people, very younger children, pregnant women, and people with certain long-time period health situations who're at a greater risk of having critical flu complications.
