Flu activity becomes widespread in Willmar area

Health Minister John Haggie also announced plans are moving forward to replace the aging Lakeside Homes in Gander

"The flu season typically runs until late spring so it is not too late to get vaccinated".

"There is medication that you can take", Ayers said.

The DPH urged people to still get the vaccine because it can still help. But local health departments that do count them are reporting that more people have died.

WellStar locations saw a 10 percent increase in flu-like symptoms last week compared with the week before. If a child is increasingly irritable or unusually sleepy, they need immediate medical care, Lehman says.

An update released Thursday says that more than half of the people hospitalized for flu are age 50 and up. The CDC reports that across the country, hospitals are seeing roughly twice the typical baseline of patients with influenza-like symptoms coming through the doors.

"The efficacy of the flu vaccine can only be determined at the end of a season", said Haggie.

Cartter said "We're hearing from hospitals across the state that many are full, they have no extra beds, they're seeing lots of ill patients with influenza like illnesses or confirmed cases of flu". There have already been 49 outbreaks reported this season.

"Around 7,500 people around the country are now registered with the survey and, during the winter, they voluntarily report if they have had flu-like symptoms during the previous week", said a spokeswoman. The cost of a flu shot is $25, but adjustments can be made for those without insurance to get a flu shot. If someone feels that they might have the flu, they are encouraged to see a doctor right away.
