Beaumont Public Health Department, The Immunization Partnership remind residents to vaccinate against the flu

It’s that point once more.

Yes, the vacation season, but additionally the flu season – which, if in any respect, far fewer folks look ahead to.

And the 2022-23 flu season has already received off to a rocky begin.

The season often begins in October and lasts by May, with January and February seeing the highest variety of circumstances.

However, larger charges of flu and flu-like sickness have emerged a lot sooner than anticipated this yr, in accordance to Kenneth Coleman, Beaumont’s director of public well being.

It’s virtually unimaginable to report correct numbers of flu circumstances as a result of flu is not a “reportable disease” in Texas, a situation that should be reported to native well being officers.

While the well being division has a tough concept of ​​what the flu charges are, a precise quantity is not obtainable.

In late October, the Walgreens Flu Index for the week ended October 15 reported that the Beaumont-Port Arthur area had the fourth highest flu charge in the nation, with Texas rating third total amongst states with the highest flu charges.

In early November, Lumberton ISD had to shut all of its campuses for 2 days due to a spike in flu and different flu-like diseases.

The bi-weekly up to date index ending November 26 reveals that whereas Beaumont-Port Arthur has dropped out of the high 10, it nonetheless has a excessive charge of influenza exercise, with Texas now ranked sixth total.

In its Week 47 replace for the week ended November 26, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention stated, “Seasonal influenza activity is high and continues to increase across the country.”

Flu tendencies in the southern hemisphere are often a precursor to how the flu season will pan out in the United States, Terri Burke, government director of the Immunization Partnership, informed The Enterprise in October.

The Immunization Partnership is a Texas-based nonprofit group “dedicated to the vision of creating a community free of vaccine-preventable diseases.”

“We public health people tend to look to Australia and ask, ‘What’s happening there?’ and Australia had a really bad flu season,” Burke stated. “[Flu season]came earlier and came harder.”

Coleman stated the variety of flu circumstances that at the moment are being seen domestically, statewide and throughout the nation aren’t sometimes seen till January or February.

Because COVID restrictions have been in place over the previous two years, the unfold of the flu and different respiratory diseases has been slowed, Coleman stated.

“Now people can have the flu and think, ‘Oh, I just have a cold,’ and people don’t stay home,” he stated. “We nonetheless have the similar message that we’ve yr after yr. If you might be sick, please keep house from work. If kids are sick, please don’t ship them to college. We’re seeing the variety of faculties coping with flu or flu-like diseases of their workers, in addition to college students letting us know that kids are going to college sick, workers are going to work sick, and (illness) continues to unfold.”

As COVID circumstances appeared to be declining and the menace appeared much less extreme, folks began to socialize much more, Burke stated.

“We’ve been so isolated — when you’re isolated you don’t get immunity to things that are out there,” she stated.

In addition to the flu, rising circumstances of respiratory syncytial virus and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic are including stress to already overburdened and understaffed healthcare amenities.

If the development continues, Coleman stated he joins different public well being officers in worrying {that a} February peak may very well be an excessive amount of for hospitals.

“Not necessarily here, but in some cities, some states, their pediatric departments are stretched to capacity with the number of kids that are in there with RSV,” he stated. “The number of hospital admissions due to flu has increased.”

As circumstances of influenza, RSV and COVID rise and unfold concurrently, some well being officers have dubbed the potential convergence of the three viruses a “triple demic.”

RELATED: What’s new in the flu? Here are 7 issues it is best to know

“Someone can end up with all three — you’re dealing with all three in a given community, which is going to put a tremendous strain on the healthcare system,” Coleman stated. “Because you possibly can have much more folks in the hospital. Again, you are speaking about three respiratory infections that trigger respiratory difficulties, and there is a likelihood that so many individuals will find yourself needing a ventilator, which is brief provide.”

The affect may very well be multi-pronged, Coleman stated, affecting the whole lot from items obtainable for dispatch in emergencies to the variety of isolation rooms folks may be quarantined in.

“It’s a huge burden on the entire healthcare system,” he stated. “(Flu, COVID and RSV) are all here and what makes it more concerning when you talk about COVID and flu, the symptoms are pretty much identical. So we don’t want people to think, ‘Oh, I just have the flu, I’ll just put up with it’ when it actually could be COVID. It could be both. But the only way you’ll know is to go and get a test.”

But even getting COVID exams presents a complete new problem for some, Coleman stated.

“You have a lot of people who don’t have insurance, so talk about paying out of pocket to have these tests done,” he stated.

RELATED: States with highest flu shot charges

The greatest means to scale back your likelihood of getting the flu or COVID is to get vaccinated and/or boosted and put on a masks, Coleman stated.

“Vaccines don’t necessarily stop you from catching the flu or COVID, but they can keep you out of the emergency room and also reduce the number of sick days,” he stated. “It can also reduce the severity of the disease if you haven’t been vaccinated (previously). And it helps stop the spread. But above all and most importantly, it only promotes overall health. We have to do what we have to do to contain the spread and vaccines are our best tool, our best weapon, to fight these respiratory infections.”

Convincing folks to get the flu shot or get their COVID vaccine and/or an up to date booster is a problem, Burke stated. She stated The Immunization Partnership is making an attempt to remind folks of these whose possibilities of combating off an infection are compromised.

“There have been so many babies born since January 2020 who have never been exposed,” she stated. “You haven’t any immunity to something. When children do not have immunity and so they get one thing like the flu, it is harmful. We’ve seen that respiratory illness basically has elevated with RSV…it is a large drawback for infants and younger kids particularly.”

Elevated assessments of influenza and different comparable diseases aren’t good for the economic system both, Burke stated.

RELATED: A yr later, omicron remains to be fueling COVID flare-ups and worries

“What happens to employers, what happens to families when mom and dad both have to stay at home because the child is sick?” She stated. “There are no wages. As we know, too many companies don’t offer sick leave. There’s all these things — they’re more of a side issue, except when that happens, they become big issues.”

The Vaccination Partnership and native well being departments are working to dispel frequent myths surrounding the flu and COVID vaccines.

“Some people cling to the myth, ‘Well, the last time I took the flu vaccine, I got the flu,’ that’s a myth,” Coleman stated. “It’s a dead virus, so it can’t give you the flu. Some people hear other people talk about it, ‘When I took it, this happened to me,’ so they don’t take it. It’s a lot of the same reasons or excuses why a lot of people haven’t taken the COVID vaccine.”

Burke stated consultants working together with her group have seen the emergence of a brand new delusion that those that take the COVID vaccine are routinely protected against the flu.

“That’s just not true,” she stated. “It’s two various things. Also, in fact, there are completely different (strains) of the flu.”

RELATED: Beaumont Health Department is providing an up to date COVID-19 booster

Although pandemic fatigue is frequent amongst many individuals, it is essential to keep vigilant about these viruses, Burke stated.

“There’s a feeling, I think there’s some security among people who think that (COVID) is over and it’s not,” she stated. “Then this whole issue of ‘We’ve had bad flu seasons in the past.’ We’ve had it and it’s been a long time, but we’ve had it and we’re really ready for it, and people don’t seem to believe it.”
