    We have seen a bit of influenza this year … not as bad as some years, but it is picking up. Most of the flu I have seen this year have been in people that received the flu vaccine. I’ve only seen Type A flu so far this year … not sure which subtypes they are as that is a send out and I don’t see those reports, but no Type B yet.

    How is flu season going in your part of the country (I’m in Western Washington State).

    Jason, as you know, I no longer work due to my disability and I have stayed mostly inside due to my respiratory issues AND the local CICU letting me know that they have had several patients with the flu on the vent. I do not know which type of flu. However, you don’t have to say vent to me bot once and I steer clear
    Oh, and I am from SC


    I take back everything I said earlier… flu season has finally hit, and hit hard. I lost count how many patients came in yesterday with fevers over 103. Good spread on ages too, from infants to elderly. Sure hope I don’t get it … I don’t want it, but from what I’ve seen, the seasonal flu shot hasn’t been a very good match this year.
