  • REVEALED: Dundee and Tayside is currently one of the UK's worst-hit flu areas

The flu season is off to a fast and brutal start in our region, and it's far worse than what health officials saw previous year at this time.

NHS England's letter said: 'The adjuvanted trivalent flu vaccine is now considered to be the only licensed cost-effective option for this group'.

"No, no, no", Dougherty said.

"It's still not too late to get your flu shot", Suffoletto said. Touching an object that has flu virus on it and then touching one's own eyes, nose or mouth can also spread the flu.

The number of influenza cases are up, and Fraser Health is concerned emergency rooms will get plugged up.

There have been no reported flu-associated pediatric deaths in OH for the 2017-18 flu season, according to ODH. The vaccine available in the U.S.is reportedly only 10% effective in preventing illness from the strain.

Health experts say the influenza season in the United States is proving to be more severe than usual, with about twice the number of people reporting flu-like illness to their doctors compared with the same time a year ago.

"Its (FLUAD) approval in the United Kingdom offers a new effective option for healthcare professionals when making decisions about which influenza vaccines might be the most appropriate for their specific patient groups, particularly for those adults aged 65 years and older".

"We've seen a huge increase over the last three weeks, even over this past week", said Dawn Rogers, Deaconess' Patient Safety & Infection Control Officer. "As of this afternoon, there are fewer than five patient beds available".

Doctors say the virus can sp easily at schools and nurseries, which puts grandparents and others at risk of getting ill over the festive season. "Our walk-in clinics and ED have also been very busy".

Knox County Health Department is providing free flu vaccinations while supplies last at all three of its locations: the main location at 140 Dameron Avenue, West Clinic at 1028 Old Cedar Bluff Road, and Teague Clinic at 405 Dante Road.
