More than 1.2 million Americans have received the flu shot in the past two weeks, a record, and more than 400,000 have died.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that number represents the most in the country since the coronavirus outbreak that began in November 2014.
In all, 1.3 million people have been vaccinated, or about 80 percent of the total people who have received doses since October.
The vast majority of those who have been infected have returned to their communities to recover, the CDC said.
The U.S. has had an active flu season since late March, with the last reported case in February.
But the pandemic is now entering its third year and the flu season is winding down.
The CDC has warned that if the current pace of infections continues, the pandemics death toll could be at least double what it was before the pandics introduction.
The flu vaccine is being given to about half of the people who had been infected, but many are also being asked to take part in tests and other precautions to protect themselves.
People can get the vaccine by going to a health department, pharmacy, health club or other health care facility and using their government-issued ID.
If the flu has been detected, the person can receive the flu jab or can get a booster shot.
The first dose is given in about two hours.
If a person is already infected with the flu, the second dose can be given two to four weeks later.
The vaccine is made by Merck, and its cost is about $80 for a six-pack.
It is sold in pharmacies and online, and the U.K.-based manufacturer said it would distribute it in pharmacies.
Merck said in a statement on Tuesday that the flu shots it is distributing in Europe will contain a “new strain of the virus” and that the vaccine will also be available in the United States.
But the vaccine has not been available in many countries.
The American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) said Tuesday that more than 80 percent have had their flu shots and that those that have not have been receiving flu shots for some time.
The group said people should go to their doctor to check their influenza status.
The AARP, which represents retirees in the U: s health care industry, is asking for more research into the safety of the flu vaccines.
In a statement, the group said it is concerned about the “fatal consequences of a pandemic that has killed more Americans than any other natural or man-made illness.”AARP said it has asked Congress to extend a deadline for the government to get flu vaccines to all Americans, and also wants to see the FDA’s influenza vaccine schedule approved.
