Health officials also reported 183 flu-related deaths among children, although the CDC estimates the actual number of deaths was more than 600.

Health professionals urge people to get vaccinated. "It's not too late to protect yourself, and your family, by getting your flu shot".

CDC data shows that during last flu season, 37.1 percent of American adults got vaccinated against the flu.

The Hanover and District Hospital is reminding the public to roll up their sleeve and receive their flu shot.

A team of researchers analyzed monthly flu reports from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in four communities across the United States between October 2010 and September 2014. It is estimated that flu vaccination prevents millions of flu illnesses and tens of thousands of hospitalizations.

Some of those conditions include: Children ages 2 to 17 who are taking aspirin or salicylate-containing medication; people who have weakened immune systems; those who are age 5 and up who have asthma; and others with conditions such as lung disease, heart disease, kidney disease, or neurological or neuromuscular disorders.

The express will offer vaccines between 10am and 2pm at three locations around the island, for persons aged ten and above.

The vaccinations are free on the NHS for many people.

Dr. Frank Illuzzi, chief medical officer at CityMD, and a board-certified physician in emergency medicine, recommends patients speak with their medical providers about the different flu vaccine options to determine which one is the best fit for them.

And think of those around you. "We are still at the beginning of flu season, so now is the time to get the vaccine", said Dr. Jennifer Avegno, New Orleans Health Department Director.
