UL Hospitals urges at-risk groups to get flu vaccine

The trivalent influenza vaccine for the 2017-2018 flu season includes an A/Michigan/45/2015 (H1N1) pdm09-like virus, an A/Hong Kong/4801/2014 (H3N2)-like virus, and a B/Brisbane/60/2008-like virus (Victoria lineage).

Since September 1st, state health officials report 13 flu cases across Oklahoma.

October marks the beginning of flu season in the United States, and doctors are calling for people to act as early as possible to get vaccinated.

The warnings come as the CDC began its annual campaign to encourage Americans to get their flu shots before the virus begins spreading during the fall and winter.

"Now is a great time to get a vaccination", Martin said. Last season, 59% of children between the ages of 6 months to 17 years received a flu shot, as did 43.3% of adults 18 years of age and older.

It's flu season in Oklahoma.

While the first cases of flu may push people toward getting their flu shot, organizations like the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as Three Rivers District Health Department, advise people to receive their flu shot now before the flu starts to spread around.

Flu shots are not ideal, but they are the best protection modern science has against the disease.
