The health department is still recommending anyone who is eligible get a flu vaccine, Ferrell said, because Virginia experienced widespread flu activity through March a year ago. Connolly said the exact cause of death is pending an autopsy by the medical examiner's office.

Due to widespread flu activity remaining throughout the state, WBRZ-TV reported that the the Louisiana Department of Health will continue to offer flu vaccines at no cost at Parish Health Units across the state while supplies last.

The New York Times is reporting, hospitalization rates are higher than the CDC has ever recorded this point in the season and flu activity has been marked as "high" throughout the majority country.

Thomas commented the health department is now out of adult strength flu shots, but flu shots for children aged 6 months to 18 years old can still be given.

"This is a tragic reminder of how serious the flu can be for some people, " Monica Bharel, the state's public health commissioner, said in a statement.

Despite the circumstances of the Golden Hill Elementary School student's death, Haverhill Assistant Superintendent Jared Fulgoni said the flu has not had much of an impact on the district's overall attendance rates this school year.

If you have more than one bathroom, have the sick person use one and well people use the other. The state does not have an adult death count for this year, but we do know that the number of adults who die statewide every year ranges from 250 to over 1,100.

Almost 3,000 Americans have died from influenza or flu-related complications since the flu season began in October, including 107 Pennsylvanians.

Peter's instituted visitation restrictions for children under age 12 and anyone exhibiting flu-like symptoms, including fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose or congestion.

Those worst affected were children and young teenagers as well as people over 65. "Even when you breathe, you breath out influenza viruses, so the transmission is by droplets from the airways, so people can be infectious for a day before they have symptoms".

For more information call the Metro Public Health Department at 615-340-5616 or visit their website.

Levels of illness, based on outpatient visits and visits to emergency rooms, are "now as high as we observed at the peak of the 2009 H1N1 pandemic season", said Schuchat. Those already stricken with the flu are encouraged to take antiviral drugs to shorten the duration of symptoms and reduce the risk of complications.

Scannell had a message for parents: "Do not hesitate if your child is not feeling well to keep them home". If the patient falls into any of the identified categories, the visitor will be asked to wear a mask and wash hands before and after visiting the patient. Cover your cough and then also ... if you can, work from home. It's unlikely that there will be a lot of it around next flu season.
