The Center for Disease Control (CDC) reported that the flu vaccine effectiveness this year is higher specifically for children by an estimated 59%.
Since January, flu-related hospitalizations have climbed more than threefold, with those older than 65 years and young children 0-4 years of age having the highest risk.
The health department reported the latest child death on Tuesday.
Previous studies have shown similar results, although this is the first study to analyze hospitalizations and deaths through 6 months of life and to include all types of flu vaccines, the authors wrote.
King serves as a co-sponsor of the Flu Vaccine Act, which officials said backs comprehensive research for a universal influenza vaccine administered once or twice and provides a lifetime of protection.
The flu season lasts from October through May, so we still have several more months to go. The vaccine efficacy estimates for Influenza A (H3N2) are 25 percent; for Influenza A (H1N1) are 67 percent; and for Influenza B the rates are 42 percent.
Similar to the common cold, the flu can cause symptoms including fever over 100.4 F, feeling the chills, cough, sore throat, headache, runny nose, nasal congestion, body aches, and feeling fatigue.
The CDC says you can get a flu shot any time while pregnant. Antivirals, if started early, can sometimes help reduce the severity and duration of disease. Most of the children who have died from the flu this year have not been vaccinated with the flu shot.
