How many people die from seasonal flu each year in the United States?

The number of seasonal influenza-associated (i.e., seasonal flu-related) deaths varies from year to year because flu seasons are unpredictable and often fluctuate in length and severity. Therefore, a single estimate cannot be used to summarize influenza-associated deaths. Instead, a range of estimated deaths is a better way to represent the variability and unpredictability of flu. An August 27, 2010 MMWR report entitled “Thompson MG et al. Updated Estimates of Mortality Associated with Seasonal Influenza through the 2006-2007 Influenza Season. MMWR 2010; 59(33): 1057-1062.," provides updated estimates of the range of flu-associated deaths that occurred in the United States during the three decades prior to 2007. CDC estimates that from the 1976-1977 season to the 2006-2007 flu season, flu-associated deaths ranged from a low of about 3,000 to a high of about 49,000 people. Death certificate data and weekly influenza virus surveillance information was used to estimate how many flu-related deaths occurred among people whose underlying cause of death was listed as respiratory or circulatory disease on their death certificate.
How do the new estimates compare with the 36,000 figure that is often cited as an estimate of annual flu-associated deaths?

The 36,000 estimate was presented in a 2003 study by CDC scientists published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA)External Web Site Icon, using similar statistical modeling techniques, but only refers to a period from 1990-91 through 1998-99. During those years, the number of estimated deaths ranged from 17,000 to 52,000, with an average of about 36,000. The JAMA study also looked at seasonal influenza-associated deaths over a 23 year period, from 1976-1977 and 1998-1999. During that period, estimates of respiratory and circulatory influenza-associated deaths ranged from about 5,000 to about 52,000, with an average of about 25,000. While the 36,000 number is often cited, it's important to note that during that decade, influenza A (H3N2) was the predominant virus during most of the seasons, and H3N2 influenza viruses are typically associated with higher death rates. CDC believes that the range of deaths over the past 31 years (~3,000 to ~49,000) is a more accurate representation of the unpredictability and variability of flu-associated deaths.

I would like to point out to you that you are taking this topic in an annoying direction. You know this forum is mainly alternative thinking so why are you posting so many of these threads? You are not fostering a healthy debate instead you are attempting to polarize. Your approach would be much cleaner and human if you left this topic to one thread.

No hate here. Just a suggestion.

My posts are alternative thinking. I am in opposition to the vast majority of people here. Obviously that makes me a lunatic and I belong here. You, on the other hand should consider joining the minority, the Bolsheviks on this forum.

it doesn't matter. if our food supply was worth a shit, you wouldn't need flu shots. Its all these vaccines and drugs they push is what reduces our immunity.

In comedy you need straight guys to make the jokes go over. Since you guys are all the Shills, you need me as a straight to throw your jibes at. Meanwhile the opportunity to educate people is enhanced. In that regard, this forum can help people learn. I have said before, I post to educate. We may very well have saved a few lives in discussing this and other topics.
