Flu Lands Two Unvaccinated Pregnant Women in ICU

According to health officials, the death involved a child from Osceola County who was infected with influenza A/H1N1.

This week the CDC also recorded the seventh pediatric flu death of the season; the patient had an influenza A virus that was not subtyped.

Influenza is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. So far, the MDHHS says MI has only experienced localized flu activity but still advises anyone older than six months get a flu vaccine.

The child's death marks the sixth flu-related death in Arkansas so far this season, THV11 reported.

People under the age of 45 were the least likely to report being vaccinated. "We don't need these people going to work or school because they feel they don't want the flu to get them down", he said. Usually the only side effect is a sore arm.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that pregnant women get vaccinated during any trimester of their pregnancy, but not with the live attenuated influenza vaccine, also known as the nasal spray flu vaccine.

The good news is that the strains of flu circulating at this time seem to be a good match with the vaccines available. If you don't have medical insurance, you can go to a County public health center to get vaccinated.

And while it is true that the vaccine doesn't work 100 percent of the time, the benefit is that it lessens the severity.

Stay home if you get the flu. There have been 923 patients hospitalized and one child died. Many were adults older than 65, but also 180 children died from the flu.

Overall, flu activity remains low, both in New Mexico and nationwide; however, flu activity typically peaks between December and February. "It takes approximately two weeks for the protection provided by vaccination to begin", the CDC said.
