Third flu-related death reported, officials stress importance of vaccinations

first_imgIndianapolis, In. — Health officials in Indiana say a third flu-related death has been reported. Data shows that all three fatalities have been people over the age of 50.The Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) is urging anyone who hasn’t already gotten a flu shot to do so now. Although influenza (flu) activity remains at minimal levels, the virus can still cause illness and even death. Indiana has already recorded two flu-related deaths this season.“This week is National Influenza Vaccination Week, and it’s the perfect time to get a flu shot if you haven’t already done so,” said Indiana State Health Commissioner Kris Box, M.D., FACOG. “Vaccination is the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones from the flu.”As long as flu viruses are circulating, it’s not too late to get vaccinated. Getting a flu vaccine can reduce illnesses, doctor visits and missed work and school due to flu, as well as prevent flu-related hospitalizations.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone age 6 months and older get a flu vaccine each year. Dr. Box said that because infants under 6 months can’t be vaccinated, it’s important that anyone in a household where a young baby lives or visits get a flu shot to protect the child. Antibodies that provide protection develop in the body about two weeks after vaccination.Healthcare workers also are urged to get a flu vaccine to reduce their risk of transmitting illness to their patients.Influenza is a viral infection of the respiratory tract. It is spread by respiratory droplets released when infected people cough or sneeze nearby or when people touch surfaces or objects contaminated with those infectious respiratory droplets. People can also become infected by touching surfaces or objects contaminated with influenza viruses and then touching their eyes, mouth or nose.Although anyone can get the flu, some people are at higher risk of flu-related complications, such as pneumonia, hospitalization and death. High-risk individuals include pregnant women, young children (especially those too young to get vaccinated), people with chronic illnesses, people who are immunocompromised and the elderly. It is especially important for these individuals to be vaccinated each year.Common signs and symptoms of the flu include:fever of 100° Fahrenheit or greater• headache• fatigue• cough• muscle aches• sore throat• runny or stuffy nosePeople can help prevent the spread of flu by washing their hands frequently and thoroughly, avoiding touching their eyes, nose and mouth with their hands and staying home when sick. Hoosiers should practice the “Three Cs” to help prevent the spread of flu and other infectious diseases:Clean: Properly wash your hands frequently with warm, soapy water.• Cover: Cover your cough and sneeze into your arm or a disposable tissue.• Contain: Stay home from school or work when you are sick to keep your germs from spreading.To learn more about influenza or to view the ISDH weekly flu report, which is updated each Friday, click here. Visit the Indiana State Department of Health online here for important health and safety information, or follow us on Twitter at @StateHealthIN and on Facebook.last_img read more

Beat writers unanimous in predicting Syracuse’s matchup against Georgia Tech

first_imgSyracuse (11-4, 2-0 Atlantic Coast) cruised to two early wins to start off ACC play. SU runs into a Georgia Tech team (9-6, 1-1) lacking two of its biggest stars from last year. The Orange, who have relied heavily on the play of Oshae Brissett and Tyus Battle this season, have won against conference opponents when a third threat steps up — first Elijah Hughes, then Marek Dolezaj.Here’s what our beat writers think will happen Saturday at the Carrier Dome.Billy Heyen (13-2)Avoiding a stingSyracuse 59, Georgia Tech 50Georgia Tech has one of the best defenses in the country, but the Yellow Jackets pair that with one of the ACC’s worst offenses. So while it might be a second-straight game where Syracuse struggles to create lots of space to shoot, the Orange will put up more points than their 2-3 zone will allow. Syracuse should once again take advantage of Marek Dolezaj’s quickness and passing to deal with the Yellow Jackets’ man-to-man and head into a meeting with Duke perfect in the conference thus far.Charlie DiSturco (12-3)Keep the ball rollin’ Syracuse, 61, Georgia Tech 56AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThis game will be much closer than people expect. While Georgia Tech struggles from 3 and its offense is has struggled to keep the ball safe, its defense is among the best in the country. That’s what kept the Yellow Jackets in contention for a potential upset over No. 9 Virginia Tech and will cause the Orange offense to struggle on Saturday. The key difference here is turnovers. Syracuse jumped out in front and never looked back against Clemson, a lot of that having to do with turnovers leading to transition buckets. The Yellow Jackets rank 272nd in the country in turnover percentage, per Kenpom.com, just slightly better than Clemson. SU will use this to its advantage and improve to 3-0 in conference play for the first time in four years.Matthew Gutierrez (11-4)Don’t be fooledSyracuse 60, Georgia Tech 58Don’t be fooled by the Yellow Jackets. Before Syracuse visits No. 1 Duke, the Orange must face a solid team at home, on two days rest. Even though GT is one of the weaker teams in the conference, Syracuse needs a relatively complete performance to win. The Yellow Jackets showed Wednesday night against a really good — really good — Virginia Tech squad that they can play with the top half of the conference. GT’s defense was outstanding against the Hokies, and third-year head coach Josh Pastner will surely have his players ready to at least keep this game close at SU.
