During the 2017-2018 influenza season, the CDC estimates 48.8 million people had influenza related illnesses with 959,000 hospitalizations, and 79,400 deaths. The number of influenza related illnesses last season was the highest since the 2009 H1N1 pandemic. The best way to protect against influenza is through annual influenza vaccination. The influenza vaccine not only protects against influenza, but also reduces the severity of influenza related illnesses.
