He said that 80,000 deaths is more than double the number expected in a typical "bad" flu season. Pneumonia is a serious flu complication that can result from either influenza virus infection alone or from co-infection of flu virus and bacteria.
"We want to get the word out that the flu is not bad", Webb-Collins said. Workers in settings where employers had no vaccination requirements were more likely to get flu shots when they were offered at their work site, offered at no or low cost, or actively promoted.
Vulnerable populations like children, older adults, and those with weakened immune systems were especially affected by last year's flu.
Jennifer Stiles with the Cerro Gordo County Department of Public Health says they have plenty of vaccine for the season, but says it's tough to tell exactly what this flu season could bring. This number is thought to be underestimated, as not all flu-related deaths are reported. It also suggests that those who are around children younger than 6 months of age get vaccinated to avoid exposing the infants to the flu. Patients may come to the health department for children's flu shots at the same times as listed above. It takes two weeks for the body to build full immunity to the flu after the vaccination, which is why getting vaccinated early is important.

As a new flu season gets underway, public health officials say last year's toll underscores the importance of getting a flu vaccine each year. "Just one flu death is too many". The annual flu vaccine is the best way to reduce the chances that you will get the seasonal flu and lessen the chance that you will spread it to others. Some older people and people with certain chronic illnesses may develop less immunity after vaccination. "I will predict there will be a flu season".
Statistics released from the Washoe County Health District 2017-18 Influenza Surveillance Report show that out of 5,521 laboratory-confirmed influenza cases in Washoe County last flu season, 542 (10%) people were hospitalized (88 in ICU), and 26 people died. "Flu can lead to progressive decline and progressive disability", said Dr. Schaffner.
You may ask who should get vaccinated, and the answer is EVERYONE who is of age to get the vaccine, as long as it is not contraindicated for you as stated by your physician/medical provider.
