A four-year-old died from complications stemming from influenza - the first pediatric flu-related death in Riverside County this season, health officials said Wednesday.

Six people - including three pre-school age children - have died in hospital from influenza in Saskatchewan since the beginning of September.

Additional illness prevention resources can be found by visiting the CDC and Pennsylvania Department of Health websites.

It's not too late to get your flu shot, Prince George!

However, these figures reflect only cases in which testing was performed; many more people who come down with the flu don't seek medical assistance and therefore aren't tested.

Numbers are down for 2018-2019 compared to the same time period the previous year, with the surveillance system counting 81 for the same 12-week period in 2017-2018.

It's not too late to get your yearly flu vaccine to possibly avoid getting sick.

This year's flu season has been rough, with the CDC reporting the flu is widespread in 24 states, with 19 states reporting high levels of flu activity.

Clark County's director of public health, Dr. Alan Melnick, can't tell you a whole lot yet about this flu season.

"This season seems to be more burdensome, more severe, affecting more people and causing more hospitalizations than the last H1N1 season", Mema said. Cold symptoms are usually milder than the symptoms of flu. Because older people have a diminished immune response, the high dose trivalent vaccine is recommended for those 65 or older, and for those with chronic health conditions who may have less immunity. "She had the flu for a couple of days at home, and like any parent would do, they treated it and gave her bed rest".

Other tests called rapid molecular assays can also take 15 to 20 minutes to complete and they detect the actual genetic material of the flu virus, according to the CDC.

Getting vaccinated is especially important in Georgia, which was the first state in the U.S.to report "widespread" flu activity this season (on December 2).

Cameron Kaiser said the victim had not received a flu shot and did not have any known pre-existing health disorders.

We agree, getting a flu shot makes sense. "Flu shots are also recommended to those in high priority groups including senior citizens, pregnant women and chronically ill individuals". This is done by helping the body develop antibodies to protect against different flu strains.
