"Pediatric death as a result of the flu virus are very rare for state of West Virginia and across the country".

In the Pacific Northwest there haven't been any reported cases of dog flu this year, but veterinarian Dr. Eric Bucki, who practices in Florida, says it's good to get ahead of the virus by getting your pooch vaccinated.

Clean/wash your hands with soap and hand sanitizer regularly!

In Mobile County, there have been almost 1,200 confirmed cases of the flu.

Flu A, H3N2 in particular, remains the dominant strand circulating this year, accounting for about 62 percent of positive reports thus far.

Just as you take steps to protect yourself from the flu every year by getting vaccinated, veterinarians say it's important that for our dogs, we do the same.

Most people who get the flu don't need medical attention, according to the email. "It's a common illness that can spread quickly from person to person". It's not too late.

Dr. Sean Studer, deputy chief medical officer for the NYC Health and Hospitals Corporation, which also operates clinics across the five boroughs, said there is now no vaccine shortage. "You can transfer it from your clothes from a person with an infected dog to a non-infected dog", Haddad said. "It's still wise to get a vaccine". It can cause a nasty but relatively mild illness in many people, but more severe illnesses in others.

Officials said several emergency departments of HHC hospitals are seeing slightly more patients then they did this time previous year.

So far, 30 children in the USA have died from the flu this season.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is calling this year's flu season an epidemic, and data from West Michigan backs that up.

Officials say 759 flu deaths were reported between October 7 and December 23.

Michigan, along with 48 other states in the USA, was declared by the Centers for Disease Control to have "Widespread" influenza activity, especially for an aggressive strain known as influenza A H3N2.

And that could be as late as May, according to Vora. Flu shots are readily available at most pharmacy locations and clinics. The influenza virus is spread through the touching of others, the touching of surfaces, therefore hand washing is key to stop the spread of the virus. "If you do get the flu we urge you to refrain from going to work and to keep your children home from school", D.O.H. said.

Finally, take flu antiviral drugs if the doctor prescribes them.
