The state Health Department says influenza is now prevalent in ny state, which means health care workers who haven't had a flu shot must wear procedural masks around patients.

The number of patients being seen in the emergency departments at Quinte Health Care hospitals is on the rise and is expected to continue to increase over the next few weeks.

Statewide flu data for SC for the week ending December 9 shows that there were 28 influenza cases per 100,000 for Horry County, according to the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control. The Journal reports that according to the Australian Government Department of Health influenza A (H3N2) viruses predominated, and the preliminary estimate of vaccine effectiveness against influenza A (H3N2) was only 10%.

There have also been 21 ICU admissions and 13 reported deaths related to the flu.

It's still early in the flu season, and who knows for sure what direction it's going to take - it's kind of like the weather that way.

"The number of flu cases is relatively high for this time of year, and public health officials are concerned there will be a high risk of spreading the flu during the holiday season".




"The situation is under control, and there have not been any new reported cases", the GES further assured.

Yet an expert from the state DPH said it's a bit early to push the panic button and declare this season's vaccine ineffective.

Nearly all deaths among children under five with influenza-related lower respiratory tract infections occur in developing countries, but the effects of seasonal influenza epidemics on the world's poorest are not fully known. A flu shot may not only reduce your chance of getting sick but it may also help you avoid a potential liability. Current vaccines are said to provide better immunization against influenza B and influenza A (H1N1) viruses and offer lower protection against influenza A (H3N2) viruses. 35 patients have been hospitalized in the county, according to the Tulsa Health Department's Leanne Stephens.

The county reminds its residents there is no live virus in flu shots and the vaccine can not cause the flu.

Besides the vaccination, Burstein says there are things you can do to protect yourself.

Although they are not ideal, influenza vaccines remain a valuable public health tool, and it is always better to get vaccinated than not to get vaccinated, CDC officials state.
