This Flu Season Could Be a Whopper, Officials Warn

It's that time of year again - flu season is upon us. The vaccine promotes antibody protection within two weeks.
And this year, Dr. Fauci and the co-authors of the perspective believe this flu season could be one of the rougher ones.
In the land down under, where the 2017 flu season is now a wrap, public health officials reported record-high rates of flu, as well as above-average numbers of hospitalizations and deaths.
The flu season is just getting underway in North America, but if Australia's experience with influenza is any guide, we're in for a miserable winter. Last year, only nine were hospitalized over the same period. CDC estimates that flu resulted in 9.2 million to 35.6 million US infections since 2010. Its figures also show that from 2010-2014, annual flu related deaths ranged from a low of 12,000 during the 2011-2012 season, to a high of 56,000 during 2012-2013. The authors stated rather than focusing on short-term improvements of the common vaccine, they instead hope "to achieve the ultimate objective of a universal influenza vaccine" through using a diverse group of experts and resources.
One rationale for the arduous flu season may be that this year's presently developed vaccine may have disparate to the flu drain may have wound up propagating creating the vaccinations unproductive at intercepting the outbreak. The situation in Australia suggests this flu season could be even worse.
Though researchers are working hard behind the scenes to develop more effective vaccines, you should still aim to be proactive about your health. "We're not saying it's a great vaccine", Bregier said.
Still, there's no way to predict for certain how severe or mild the flu season will be in any given year. "Vaccines remain a valuable public health tool, and it is always better to get vaccinated than not to get vaccinated".
