"We do know the flu shot is very safe and is the best protection we have against influenza".

Flu can cause a sore throat, coughing and a raised temperature What are the symptoms of flu?

She says it surrounding states such as OH and IL are seeing the flu hit right now. It protects not only you, but those around you, preventing you from passing the virus on to others.

The flu is an extremely contagious illness.

Some people can also experience nausea and vomiting, diarrhoea or joint and limb pain.

As to why the virus is showing up so early, Rigler has one theory.

So far this year, the predominant strain of flu is H3N2. Last year, flu remained widespread for 16 weeks, or through the beginning of April. "Whenever we have a season that's predominately H3N2, we tend to have more outbreaks".

What is the "Aussie flu" outbreak?

In past years, the peak does not come until March, he said.

With that, scientists now stress the importance of a universal flu vaccine and are championing new paths away from the egg-based manufacturing process.

For some getting the flu shot is an annual tradition, but others don't think much about it. Doctors warn that the flu is something to take seriously.

Real Madrid play PSG in Champions League, Chelsea get Barcelona
We will see how we arrive at the games. "I have to be realistic, we have to face this situation with these players". Sevilla got Manchester United , whiile Porto will face Liverpool.

Rigler said it may just be that people are getting the flu earlier in the season than normal.

Flu vaccinations are typically available for a fee through physician offices, the health department or drugstores.

"Connecticut is a lot like what we are seeing nationally", Bolduc said. Michiganders can get a walk-in vaccine at a CVS Pharmacy Minute Clinic, or at a Kroger Pharmacy or Meijer Pharmacy near you.

You should also keep warm and drink plenty of water to avoid getting dehydrated.

If you're pregnant, over 65, have a long-term medical condition or weakened immune system you should consider visiting a GP if you are struck down by the flu. You will also need to use your sleeve or tissue to cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze.

What was the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic?

But those are from the shot, not a result of the flu virus.

An estimated 500 million people across the globe were caught the illness.

Still, Rigler said the best defense is a flu shot - even now.

Today, H1N1 simply is one of many flu strains that are tracked, and like the others, causes the usual flu symptoms and reappears every so often.

People who have the flu often experience all or numerous following symptoms: fever, chills, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle or body aches, headaches, fatigue and occasionally vomiting or diarrhea, although digestive issues are more common in children.
