Flu-Related Hospitalizations Continue to Climb in Ohio
Providers Report Adequate Supplies of Influenza Vaccinations
COLUMBUS – Flu activity remains a concern across Ohio as well as across the country this winter. The Ohio Department of Health (ODH) reminds all Ohioans that it’s not too late to get vaccinated against the flu.
Influenza data released today by ODH indicates that there have been 1,922 influenza-associated hospitalizations reported so far this flu season. That total number compares to 175 in the 2010-11 season and 86 in the 2011-12 season. In addition, one influenza-associated pediatric death has been recently reported. Last season, no pediatric deaths were reported, and one was reported in the 2010-11 season.
“Flu season got an early start in Ohio but it’s not too late to get your flu vaccination,” said Dr. Ted Wymyslo, Director of ODH. “We also want to help Ohioans understand more about the protection offered by the flu vaccine. There are a lot of myths out there, such as the misconception that the flu shot makes you sick.”
