However flawed though present day influenza vaccines represented a priceless public health tool, and getting vaccinated is the right step as compared to not getting vaccinated at all, the corresponding global team of medical specialists accentuated, however, in the viewpoint.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that an annual fluvaccine is the "the first and most important step in protecting against flu viruses".
But that doesn't mean we will see the same issue in the U.S.
While it's definitely good to be aware of the potentially rough flu season, Dr. Fauci stresses that there is no need to go full-on hazmat suit.
"Definitely last week, when everyone was out for Thanksgiving and exposed to people coming from out of state and a lot more cold weather, we saw a huge uptick in it", said Remedios. Researchers vociferate that this directs towards a prospective intrinsic defect in the way flu vaccines are produced.
This year's flu season could be more extreme than in year's past and as it turns out, the vaccine might not be as strong as experts hoped. Flu season in Spokane County typically peaks in February. The flu vaccine does not cause the flu. CDC has estimated previously that seasonal flu-associated deaths in the United States range between 3,000 and 49,000 people each year. Current vaccines are developed based on the previous year's flu strain, which creates a high chance of a mismatch. Usually, these mutations don't affect the vaccine later on.
Previous studies have linked the slower replication of this cold-adapted strain to changes in three virus genes. There also are flu antiviral drugs that can be used to treat and prevent flu. He adds that avoiding public places during an outbreak, staying home from school or work when you are ill, and covering your mouth if you sneeze is key to reducing the spread of the virus.
The vaccine this year may not offer much protection at all. They found that this enhanced the replication rate of the strain in human nasal cells. The vaccine stimulates the body's immune system to make antibodies, which can recognize and attack that specific strain of virus inside the body.
"It will make your illness shorter and less severe so its still worth getting", Stevenson said.
