First child in Florida has died of flu this season, state reports

University of Otago Professor Michael Baker believes that in the face of a 'devastating' pandemic New Zealand's border should be closed

The report did not say where the child died but did say the child was otherwise healthy.

Of the 183 kids who died from the flu last season, 80 percent were unvaccinated.

"Each flu season is different and unpredictable", Steward said. "Although not ideal, the flu shot is a valuable and life-saving public health tool".

As flu clinics opened around Alberta Monday morning, a new survey suggests a little over half of Edmonton residents plan to get a flu shot this year.

The Department of Health and Community Services says 125,000 people across Newfoundland and Labrador received the flu shot in 2017 through the province's publicly funded vaccination program.

The virus that causes influenza spreads from person to person through coughing or sneezing, as well as through direct contact with infected people and contaminated surfaces or objects, Maryland health officials say.

28 percent of parents believe flu vaccines can cause autism. "Because information can come from so many places, from friends and family to the internet, it's important to talk to a doctor you trust to get credible information that is based in science and facts".

Albertans six months of age and older will once again be able to receive a free influenza vaccine. "You can not get autism from the flu vaccine".

First is to get a flu shot, Mary-Ann Rock, the Manager of communicable disease and control department of the Haliburton-Kawartha-Pine Ridge Health Unit, says that the flu shot is targeted to combat influenza, adding that it is the best protection against the virus. The other was an unspecified flu-like disease. Approximately 80 per cent of those who died were not vaccinated.
