  • Expect a Bad Flu Season

According to this report by the New England Journal of Medicine, the number of people with the flu reached over two hundred and fifteen thousand by the middle of October in Australia, almost three times more than the H1N1 pandemic almost a decade ago.

However, 6 percent of the cases with serious flu complications reported in the previous flu season involved people with chronic liver disease, so those people should also be aware of the increased risk, Lo said.

Goudreau says "the relatively low percentage of effectiveness in Australia is due to many factors, including the shifting and changing of the flu virus each season". According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, several strains of influenza virus are in circulation.

Skiest said people can avoid numerous complications associated with the virus by getting the shot.

"They are at high risk of complication from influenza, getting severely ill from influenza, being hospitalized, having a longer hospitalization, ending up in [intensive care] or even dying from influenza", Dr. Dawar said. He encourages people age 65 and older to talk with their doctor about getting one of the vaccines created to give older people a better immune response, and therefore, better protection against flu.

"The flu vaccine takes two weeks to become fully effective", said Dr. Levine.

But healthcare providers say you should still get the flu shot. This year, there are concerns that the shot is not very effective, but experts are still encouraging people to get it.

Doctors typically look south to get an idea of what's coming.
