The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said the entire country is experiencing a much milder flu season this year so far.

And one of the most common complications from the flu is pneumonia, which is especially risky for the very young and the elderly.

When it comes to vaccinating yourself - or your kids - against the flu, there are two options in the United States: a traditional shot or a nasal spray. It's unclear if the three deaths are included in the six pediatric deaths reported by the Public Health Agency of Canada.

The ODH urges people who think they may have the flu and are pregnant, have an underlying medical condition, or are extremely ill to contact their healthcare provider immediately.

In Arizona, there have been 4,510 confirmed cases of influenza this season compared to 16,144 previous year at this time, and the flu is widespread throughout the state.

Brexit: Jeremy Hunt says UK Parliament won’t allow no deal
MPs will gather at Westminster Monday to resume their marathon debate on the Brexit bill ahead of the vote early Tuesday evening. Jeremy Corbyn has said that he would "rather get a negotiated deal" than hold another European Union referendum.

"And that's why we're putting this message out today, " Dr. Goodison said.

Last season, an estimated 49 million Americans got sick from the flu, 23 million went for medical care and 960,000 were hospitalized.

Those viral infections aren't as risky as the flu, and the symptoms can be managed with over-the-counter medications or home remedies such as lemon tea with honey. "The dominant strain this year is type A, H1N1. They don't have the ability and capacity to generate enough oxygen for the rest of the body to survive the infection", Givelichian said.

"Influenza season generally begins in October and can last through May, with peak activity usually between December and February", Durham said in statement. Of the 156 patients who have been admitted to hospital in the province this season - 27 of them to the intensive-care unit - a "large proportion", have not been immunized, she added. These offices are the only place children under five can get their vaccinations, with that age group identified as one of the at-risk groups in this flu season.

The message to get vaccinated seems to be sinking in, with more people taking advantage of flu shots at pharmacies every year, said Gudmundson.
