  • Only 19 per cent of Manitobans vaccinated against flu but it's not too late

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nine pediatric flu deaths had been reported this season from other states as of December 16.

The number of flu cases normally peaks here and elsewhere between January and February.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said up to half of all children who die as a result of the flu have no known medical condition that put them at higher risk for complications of the illness.

Almost 1,000 influenza cases have been reported in Pima County so far this season through December 30 - 10 times more than the number of cases reported through December 31 a year ago.

In Riverside County, the flu is not quite as widespread.

"We anticipate that we'll have this increased activity for at least quite some time", said Tan. In the same time past year, 140 cases were reported.

Dr. Gonzalez says, "If they start with flu like symptoms like fever, cough, extreme muscle aching they should see their doctors, especially if you're elderly or you're very young, because children under five are very susceptible". It's never too late for people to get their flu shot since flu season typically lasts from October to April.

The CDC recommends that anyone over 6 months of age get a flu shot.

The H3N2 strain, which caused one of Australia's worst flu outbreaks a year ago, can lead to pneumonia and other life-threatening conditions.
