First pediatric flu death reported to NJ Department of Health

Mema also says they've seen more younger people die from flu-related complications this year.

Dr. Siiri Bennett, state epidemiologist at the Maine CDC, said that flu season is unpredictable, and can peak at any time.

Seventy-one of those kids had to be admitted to the ICU.

"We're really just now getting into our flu season", said Dr. Michelle Murti of Public Health Ontario, noting that the proportion of tests on people with respiratory bugs that came back positive for influenza had doubled to 16 per cent in the week ending December 29, compared to eight per cent the week before. However, he's expecting another two to four weeks of transmission.

The predominant strain this year is influenza A H1N1, which Bankole said tends to have less severe symptoms than the predominant strain circulating last season, influenza A H3N2.

A child has died from the flu, the New Jersey Health Department announced Tuesday, making it the first flu-related pediatric death of the season in the state.

And, Sherlock says, "It's not too late to get a flu shot".

The swine flu is the main strain of virus circulating. "Even if you think you had the flu already, it is possible to get a second infection with a different strain, so immunization can still be beneficial". While the CDC recommends that people get vaccinated against the flu by the end of October, getting a flu shot later can still be beneficial.

It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body that protect against the flu virus, so the earlier the shot is administered, the better.

Three of those deaths have been unvaccinated children under the age of five.

Dr Kelleher said that while most people will get better themselves from flu, anyone who was concerned about their condition should telephone their GP or an out-of-hours medical service so they could arrange to be treated in a way that did not put others at risk. It also misstated the percentage of children that make up B.C.'s population.
