Strain B rearing its head at the end of a season is actually nothing out of the ordinary, explains Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious disease expert at Vanderbilt University.
"Illness associated with influenza B can be just as severe as illness associated with influenza A", said the district's health officer, Bob Lutz.
Pregnant women over 13 weeks, adults over 65 and over, children between six months and six years, chronically ill and workers of poultry or pig farms have flocked to more than 650 public and private vaccination centers deployed throughout Chile, which has generated an average of 177,422 immunized during the business days of the campaign. For the entire season so far, influenza A strains have been responsible for 70 percent of all cases, the CDC report noted.
Now, a so-called universal flu vaccine is in the works, one that would work no matter what strain is circulating and would last for multiple seasons. You can not get sick from the vaccine because the virus has been killed.
Health officials say flu season should basically be over, but this year's virus seems to have other plans. However, it actually showed significantly better results, 42 percent, against influenza B (Yamagata lineage), the strain now seeing a resurgence.
There are inactivated flu viruses or pieces of the viruses, called subunits, in the vaccine.
"Of all the vaccines that we've developed over the years, influenza vaccine can use a lot of improvement", said Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
A quadrivalent, as its name suggests, protects against four strains: two A and two B. Whether the others who died had been vaccinated hadn't been determined, Mirivel said. More than 76% of those hospitalizations were associated with the Influenza A virus. "Even if the flu strains in the vaccine do not change, yearly vaccination is still recommended, as protection from flu vaccination is not long-lasting".
Even if an antiviral doesn't defeat the flu outright, it will likely make it less severe.
Take antiviral medications if they are prescribed. That's the time to absolutely get vaccinated.
