The CDC says this is side effect is rare, but a court found Smith was entitled to compensation. As health officials rushed to contain the outbreak, the CDC admitted that the 2014 flu vaccine did not protect well against H3N2 - it had just seven percent chance of protection. No deaths have been reported in the state's two most populous counties.

However, as Dr. Tanya Altmann, a pediatrician and spokeswoman for the American Academy of Pediatrics, pointed out, the flu has potentially serious complications such as pneumonia, bronchitis and sinus and ear infections. "And I think you have to speak out, stand your ground and make other nurses feel they can as well".

Laura Spicer, Executive Director Valley Health, "Thousands of people get sick from the flu each year".

Infants and pregnant women, particularly those in the second and third trimesters, are most vulnerable to developing complications, according to the CDC.

The best protection against the flu is the flu vaccine.

It may not sound like a disaster, since this year's flu shot is only 10 percent effective against the difficult-to-stop H3N2 strain.

Flu shots are available at more than 300 locations around Vermont. DHEC encourages everyone to find the facility that works best for them.

"Everybody's risk is different", Schwartz said.

Lin, who chaired the meeting, said that doctors have reported that while hepatitis A vaccines have been administered to children older than 12 months, they are not included in subsidies for children's standard vaccinations, which might result in doctors being unable to apply for reimbursement of vaccination costs. Flu vaccines offer lasting protection against the flu for the entire flu season.
