"We've got to keep in mind that it's still very, very early, and even at this time past year, there hadn't been a huge amount of activity either", said Webby, a member of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital's Department of Infectious Diseases. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says five pediatric flu deaths have been reported nationwide this season.

"Millions of people get the flu every year, hundreds of thousands of people are hospitalized, and tens of thousands of people die from flu-related consequences".

"The whole thing about shots is that herd mentality", Borgen said.

Health officials are making yet another push to make sure everyone gets their flu shot. Flu shots also don't ever cause the flu. "That's not an area where we see those issues". Although the latest flu season is just getting started, Madoff said, there's no need for concern yet. These measures include covering your mouth when coughing and sneezing, staying at home when you or your children are sick and washing your hands frequently. "Those are the typical things".

"Influenza may be familiar, but should never be overlooked or accepted as a minor problem", said Dr. Alexia Harrist, Wyoming state epidemiologist, in a news release this fall. If you have insurance, bring your insurance information with you as your insurance will be billed. "If you have something viral and it's mild, we don't want the doctor to give you medicine, because we're working hard on not creating antibiotic-resistant diseases". Looking forward, the DPH expects the rate of patients with flu-like illnesses to increase into the winter.

"In terms of flu seasons, the last one was very severe". It can be a risky illness for anyone, but it can be especially harmful for babies who are too young for the vaccine, older adults, pregnant women, and people who have chronic medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes and heart disease, or a weakened immune system. National Influenza Vaccination Week is scheduled during the first week of December to remind people the importance of continuing the flu vaccination through the holiday's season and beyond.
