Influenza-like illnesses making widespread appearance
"There is still time for the flu vaccine to be effective, therefore we are recommending that people get it," Rushton said. "Normally, it takes about two weeks for the vaccine to actually kick in and the flu season has yet to reach its peak. Everyone 6 months of age or older should get one."Typical flu symptoms include fever, dry cough, sore throat, muscle aches and general malaise.
Rushton says anyone experiencing these type symptoms should call his or her health care provider.About 112 million Americans had been vaccinated by the end of November, the CDC report said. Manufacturers were expecting to produce about 135 million total doses this year.On average, about 25,000 Americans die each flu season, according to the CDC.//
