Laboratory-confirmed cases of contagious flu are on the rise in the United States, with 11 deaths attributed to the virus in San Diego County, Calif., alone.

In Los Angeles County, there have been 19 influenza-associated deaths reported for the 2017-2018 flu season.

Five people this season, all adults, and two aged 81 and 98, died of seasonal flu complications in Dallas County, Texas, the county's health services office said on Thursday.

"It's not too late to get a flu shot to protect against this serious disease". A rapidly developing flu season leaves experts predicting that the coming months will be tough for anyone in the line of fire.

Over the last week, flu numbers have more than doubled from previous weeks, and the numbers continue to climb, according to Chanda Newsome, infection control and prevention coordinator.

"Patients are recovering from surgery and various illnesses, so we can not risk subjecting them to the flu and other cold viruses", said Lisa Klaustermeier, Chief Nursing Officer at Anderson Hospital.

"There's a lot of confusing information being provided from multiple news sources that the flu shot has been only 10 percent effective", says.

If someone does get the flu after having received the vaccine, it will be shorter and less severe in most cases, he said. At least 11 people younger than 65 have died in California, while North Carolina has reported 12 deaths and SC seven.

Typical flu symptoms include high fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, headache, muscle aches and extreme fatigue.

Because it's a virus, antibiotics will not help, officials say. Antivirals are especially important for at-risk patients, including: kids under 2 years old and adults over 65, pregnant women, people with asthma, and patients with weakened immune systems.
