The Wisconsin Department of Health Services says they're expecting the flu to get worse, telling us the virus is in what they call an "acceleration stage".

During the last flu season was epidemic in Pennsylvania, almost 260 people died from flu or flu-complications. Last year, flu killed 185 children, the highest number of pediatric flu deaths in a regular flu season, according to the CDC.

This is according to a report released this afternoon by the Mississippi Department of Health.

Dr Kelleher said hundreds die from the virus every year and has made a plea for members of the public to get the flu jab and limit their contact with the public if the notice any of the symptoms arise.

In Arkansas last week, 52 of the state's 75 counties reported influenza cases.

In addition, a pain-free nasal spray vaccine is also available for children and youth aged 2 to 17 years.

For the week ending December 22, Alabama, Colorado, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, New Jersey, New Mexico, South Carolina, and New York City reported high flu activity. Children younger than 5 had the highest incidence of hospitalization, with 10 per 100,000 people.

"Less than 1 in 3 people in Wisconsin have received influenza vaccines".

So far, 8 people in Pennsylvania have died from the flu this season. He said the virus would continue to spread widely in the coming weeks.

Those with flu symptoms are advised to visit their primary care doctor, a Lee Health Convenient Care, walk-in or urgent care center. They both can infect your airways and cause coughing.

Some, like Michael Cohen of Sussex County says he previously resisted the flu shot, but is happy he got one.

Flu season has officially begun.

While it's too early to tell just how effective this year's flu shot is, the vaccine protects against this year's most prevalent strain. "I think it's probably the single best thing you can do to prevent the flu". But if you're sick, the CDC recommends that you stay home so you won't infect others.
