Flu shots are$20 for adults and $10 for chil-dren up to 18 years of age.It is helpful to check withthe insurance carrier prior tothe appointment to see if immu-nizations are covered.Infectious Disease Nurse atthe Van Wert County Boardof Health Linda Bissonettereports there have been threehospitalized cases with ILI,which is comparable to lastyear’s figures at this same time.Director of Nursing Kim Haasindicates that the agency stillhas plenty of vaccine for chil-dren aged 6-35 months and alimited quantity of flu mist forchildren 3-18. Adult vaccineswill no longer be availablethrough the agency. Instead,residents can make arrange-ments at Community HealthProfessionals, Family HealthCare of Northwest Ohio andCVS Pharmacy.“It is critical to wash handsand avoid touching mouth andeyes,” Haas detailed preventa-tive measures. “If sick, stayhome at least until your feverbreaks.”Van Wert County flu vac-cines are available from 9a.m. to noon on Wednesdaysthrough January.

SinceOct. 1, 3,710 laboratory-con-firmed influenza-associatedhospitalizations have beenreported; an increase of 1,443hospitalizations from the previ-ous week. This translates to arate of 13.3 influenza-associat-ed hospitalizations per 100,000people in the United States.Influenza-associated hospi-talizations are highest amongpeople 65 and older. Of the3,710 influenza-associatedhospitalizations that have beenreported this season, 46% havebeen among people 65 andolder.The proportion of deathsattributed to pneumonia andinfluenza (P&I) based on the122 Cities Mortality ReportingSystem is now slightly abovethe epidemic threshold for thefirst time this season.Two influenza-related pedi-atric deaths were reported dur-ing the week between Dec.30 and Jan. 5. One of thedeaths was associated with aninfluenza A (H3) virus, andone was associated with aninfluenza A virus of unknownsubtype.
