A notification was issued on January 10.

There have been 25-hundred reported cases of influenza in North Dakota, whereas this time previous year there were 870.

Private health care providers, meanwhile, were encouraged to procure the influenza vaccine through private distributors in order to provide for the general population.Vaccination for influenza is recommended annually (before the start of the flu season). "This is likely due to the predominance of influenza B/Victoria and influenza A (H1N1) pdm09 viruses, which are more likely to affect children and younger adults than the elderly".

"The only thing predictable about flu is that it's unpredictable", he said.


A CDC expert told the Washington Post that despite this year's flu vaccine not being a match with this particular strain of the flu, a vaccine could still be beneficial. "60 percent of hospitalizations have been under the age of 65".

"What we're seeing is the number of deaths and hospitalizations are farther during this time of year".

During the last five flu seasons, only one influenza-related death occurred among children in Idaho, according to the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare.

Haupt stressed to reporters Friday that the best way to prevent the flu from spreading is to get vaccinated. "It is not too late to get the vaccine, plenty of supplies available and it is safe", Haupt said".
