Authorities say flu activity across New Jersey is high, so it's important for those who have not yet done so to get a flu shot.

Maine ended the 2017-18 flu season with 9,018 cases and 82 deaths, the Maine CDC reported, the worst flu season in at least five years.

So far in North Carolina, there have been 10 flu-related deaths this flu season. The death toll is lower, too, having reached a total of 91 at this point last season. "I think this year we can anticipate that emergency rooms, out-patient visits will be greater because younger people are being affected by H1N1, but the overall impact of serious outcomes should be less this year compared to the last couple of seasons".

Getting vaccinated is imperative, because Clark County moved a step closer to active flu season after entering the new year.

The flu spreads "mainly by droplets made when people with flu cough, sneeze or talk". "This is a tragic reminder that the flu can still kill and that children are particularly susceptible to the illness. When you get vaccinated, you are not just protecting yourself, you are also protecting the people you love".

"So we would like everybody who's eligible to get the vaccine", said Russell, noting that it takes about two weeks for antibodies induced by the shot to come into full effect.

Dr Kelleher said that while most people will get better themselves from flu, anyone who was concerned about their condition should telephone their GP or an out-of-hours medical service so they could arrange to be treated in a way that did not put others at risk. This was mostly among children ages 0-4 years old.
