Department of Health says Ohio's flu activity reaches highest level

At first glance, this year's flu season looked like it could be a mild one, but the virus has since flexed its muscles and those who haven't yet gotten a flu shot still have time to get one, area health experts say.

MDHHS announced that Calvin College, Wayne State University, and the University of MI are the winners of the 2017-2018 Flu Vaccination Challenge for small, medium, and large-sized schools, respectively.

"Providers reporting increased percentages of patients with influenza-like illness and influenza samples sent to public health provide an indication of the geographic spread of influenza in Alabama", Dr. Karen Landers, District Medical Officer for ADPH, said in a statement released Monday.

"They had an exceptionally bad flu season", Schneider said.

Flu cases in OH are at an all time high, this year.

"Getting the vaccine will reduce your chance of that happening to you".

Health officials said several there have been several positive flu specimens reported in north Alabama in the past three weeks. While flu vaccine can vary in how well it works, it is the best way to prevent flu illness and serious flu complications, including those that can result in hospitalization. It takes about two weeks for the body to develop the antibodies that fight the flu.

Statewide, influenza activity is down, although other areas, including parts of OH, already have seen regional outbreaks of the flu.

"We should pay attention and focus on prevention", Schneider said. The county won't know for sure how bad this flu season will be until January and February, the peak months for flu infections.

He said most people can get through the flu just fine, but he said there are some groups that should be careful.
