The state Department of Health and Human Services says 18 people died in the state last week because of the flu, while 27 passed away the week before.

The health department said overall influenza activity peaked during the week ending January 20, but the state is seeing a second wave of the disease because of influenza B.

Flu deaths in North Carolina have well surpassed those from all of last season, according to numbers released on Thursday. That's down from 340 the week prior.

Dr. Hawse said that it means that we're a little more than halfway done with flu season.

This was the second death reported at the hospital since February 9.

The flu vaccine is also offered at locations outside of Tulsa. This rate is higher than the 7.4% pneumonia- or flu-related deaths that had been anticipated for the week.

Most of the discussion related to the H3N2 component of the flu vaccine and one of the influenza B components, Webby said. That's less than half of the number of cases reported just a week earlier. The NIH unveiled a strategic plan Wednesday focusing on research areas essential to creating a safe and effective universal influenza vaccine.

Go to tulsa-health.org for more information about the flu, including flu vaccination clinic locations and hours of operation, and accepted insurance and other methods of payment. The Flu Vaccine Act, which was introduced in the Senate a few weeks ago, was introduced in the House this week.

H3N2 remained the predominant strain in the US, but a late-season surge in influenza B has continued, with the percentage of specimens tested in clinical labs that were positive for B viruses rising from 41.8% to 45.8%.

The Walgreens at 159-34 Jamaica Ave.is an official City flu shot voucher location. "This particular year we ordered 600 and used all 600".

The CDC recommends that everyone aged 6 months and older get a flu shot.

Ultimately, the World Health Organization meeting mostly reiterated the problems with the vaccine technologies and discussed changes in how to make vaccines for flu. "And I am again reminding all New Yorkers to practice good hand hygiene and stay home if they are sick".
