Doctors say a typical flu season in Oklahoma usually runs from October to May. Dr. Anthony Fauci is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

The number of confirmed flu cases is high for this point in the season, according to OSDH. Dr. Fauci also stated that this flu season could be a lot like the 2014 season. If you were wondering how bad this year's flu season will be, experts are warning that it might be unsafe.

The Georgia Department of Health reports there is flu activity in the state, with 22 people ending up in the hospital due to influenza. The influenza A virus was the most common flu strain. The flu shot, which boasts a 40% effectiveness rate on an average year, only appeared to be about 10% this year. Americans are receiving the same vaccine.

The vaccine this year may not offer much protection at all. The vaccine stimulates the body's immune system to make antibodies, which can recognize and attack that specific strain of virus inside the body.

According to an article in the New England Journal of Medicine, the flu vaccine used in Australia, that's pretty much the same as the one in the USA, was only ten percent effective.

For many, the flu vaccine is covered under some form of insurance or through Medicare Part B - and often with no out-of-pocket cost. The vaccine is made from genetically-engineered proteins. "Currently, most influenza vaccines in the United States are produced using chicken eggs, while a few are made in cell culture or by using recombinant DNA technologies", explained the NIAID news brief. A universal flu vaccine would eliminate the need for annual shots, as well as attack both pandemic and seasonal strains of the influenza virus. However, Reuters reports the life-saving drug must undergo years of clinical trials before it could be accessible to the general public. Dr. Fauci stated that developing a universal vaccine should be a high priority.
