Some doctors simply say the flu is peaking sooner this year, but the effectiveness of this year's flu shot is also a concern.

"They have a less tropical climate, one that's more like ours", Patel said in a news release. "The flu shot is your best defense against getting the flu and that remains to be the case". But it's important that anyone who feels sick stays away from public places like work or school to help stop the spread. USA flu vaccines are created to fight the same strain of the virus that spreads during the Australian flu season.

Influenza vaccines, also known as flu shots, are vaccines that protect against influenza. That compared with 157 at the same time a year ago.

According to surveillance data conducted by the province on influenza rates, confirmed cases this flu season are up 60 per cent compared to the same time previous year. And that last season, Rigler continued, lasted unusually long, into the summer months, with 100 or more cases a week into June and July. "Every year, we see hospitalizations and deaths from the flu here in our region". And often, by then, more than one-third of those admissions will test positive for the flu.

From the time flu clinics opened across the province on October 23, there have been 250,520 doses of influenza vaccine administered as of December 2. "Whenever we have a season that's predominately H3N2, we tend to have more outbreaks".

Heather Ren, with HSHS St. John's Hospital in Springfield says even in a good year, the flu vaccine is roughly 60% effective.

MedExpress pointed to a November 29 perspective published by The New England Journal of Medicine that began: "As clinicians in the United States prepare for the start of another influenza season, experts have been watching the Southern Hemisphere winter for hints of what might be in store for us in the North. Reports from Australia have caused mounting concern, with record-high numbers of laboratory-confirmed influenza notifications and outbreaks and higher-than-average numbers of hospitalizations and deaths".

"Therefore, you have much more closeness between people, making them more contagious if they are ill, especially during the holidays".
