Flu season starting to pick up, CDC reports

Flu activity is on the rise this season in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as the number of states reporting higher levels of influenza-like illness (ILI) jumped from two to nine.

This year the majority of flu vaccines being offered in the community protect against two strains of influenza A and two strains of influenza B.

The early start to the flu season was partly to blame for filling emergency rooms with flu-infected people, the Public Health Agency of Canada has said.
