The adenovirus feels like the flu, with symptoms that include fever, sore throat and diarrhea, noted the newspaper.

According to the CDC, the adenovirus can lead to everything from the common cold, to conjunctivitis, bladder inflammation or infection, inflammation of stomach and intestines (gastroenteritis), and neurologic disease, conditions that affect the brain and spinal cord.

A non-stop surge in military training camps of adenovirus-related outbreaks prompted the Department of Defense to reinstate the vaccine in 2011 after some years away, the study found, "dramatically reducing" cases of adenovirus.

Adriana Kajon, an infectious disease specialist at the Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute in Albuquerque, New Mexico, told NBC News that doctors often don't test for the disease. Officials said individuals with flu symptoms, particularly those with risk factors such as those with health issues and children age five and younger, should talk to their healthcare providers about antiviral medication. "We are seeing severe adult infections. But this vaccine is not licensed to be used in civilians", Kajon continued. "The flu can have serious, life-threatening effects, including death; community members should get their vaccination as soon as possible".

After the Georgia Department of Public Health reported last week that this flu season is the most unsafe in years, the Muscogee County School District announced Tuesday extra precautions and guidelines for outbreak prevention.

"Unfortunately, it all comes down to the perception of having a market", she told the network.
