  • The Ohio Department of Health reports the state's first pediatric flu-related death of the 2017-18 flu season a 4-year-old boy from Montgomery County.
Influenza claimed the lives of two people in Northeast Ohio according to the Cuyahoga County Board

Officials with the Tarrant County Health Department are reporting three flu-related deaths.

The child died at Dayton Children's Hospital on Saturday, January 6. Only pediatric flu deaths are required to be reported, but Tarrant County Public Health does receive some voluntary information from its healthcare community partners.

The 2017-18 flu season in OH and nationally is looking similar to the 2014-15 flu season, which at the time was the most severe flu season in recent years, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Schneider also said that this year happens to be the 100-year anniversary of the Spanish Flu Pandemic that killed 20 to 50 million people worldwide.

ODH also is reporting 1,750 new confirmed flu-associated hospitalizations in OH during the first week of January, a significant increase over 925 reported during the last week of December.

"The virus we're giving them is dead, it's virtually impossible to get the flu from a vaccine", de Lota said. You can also protect yourself by washing your hands, sneezing or coughing into your elbow, staying home when you are sick and not touching your eyes, nose and mouth.

Those with the flu should stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone except to get medical care or for other necessities.

However, "influenza is a very serious illness, so if you're at high risk or have symptoms such as difficulty breathing, chest pain, dizziness, confusion, persistent vomiting, can not drink fluids, or have flu-like symptoms that improve but then return with fever or worse cough, seek emergency medical care immediately", said Dr. Cara Christ, director of the Department of Health Services.

Top White House Aide calls Steve Bannon's comments in book 'grotesque'
CNN reported that Trump Jr. was sent the email on September 4, 2016, days before a trove of stolen emails were publicly released. On Twitter, Trump insisted that he was a " very stable genius " in defense of some critics speculating about his mental health.

Specifically, cases of H3N2, a strain of influenza A, are high.

It can take up to two weeks to build full immunity to influenza following a vaccination, so people should get shots immediately, the department said.

"The Influenza-A H1N1 outbreak in Kumasi Academy started on the 29th November 2017 and as of 31st December 2017, a total of 95 cases (suspected, probable and confirmed) including four (4) deaths have been reported".

"Even if it's not a good match and even if you do get sick, you have a milder version of the disease, so hopefully you don't have to be hospitalized ... and you may not expire", he said.

Each year is different, but reported cases of the influenza virus usually peak in February.

While the flu shot isn't always effective, doctors say if you catch the flu and have had the shot the symptoms may be less severe.

Getting a flu shot is the best preventative measure and it's never too late, Scherzer added. "People are bad about coughing into their hands and then they don't wash their hands, and then, of course, we transmit the flu".
