INFLUENZA IN THE NEWS

Health Advisory Issued on Severe Strain of Influenza in Young and Middle Aged Adults

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a health advisory on Dec. 24 regarding early reports of a severe strain of influenza (pH1N1) in young and middle aged adults, with multiple associated hospitalizations. Many of the hospitalized patients required intensive care. Some fatalities have been reported. Influenza activity is expected to increase during the next few weeks.
All vaccine formulations this season contain a pH1N1 component. CDC recommends annual influenza vaccination for everyone 6 months and older. Based on current influenza activity with pH1N1, anyone who has not yet been vaccinated this season should get an influenza vaccine now.
