Last week, I had flu-like symptoms: sore throat, runny nose, headache, fever, and fatigue. I did not see my doctor and my illness has mostly resolved (on its own). When I contacted my county health department, they had no interest in making any record of my illness. How then, are accurate numbers of people infected obtained?
I do receive an annual flu shot although, at the time of my illness, did not receive this year's injection. So, in addition to not being "counted", there is no way to know which type of flu, if any, that I had.
