Physicians in multiple locations have reported an increase of patients presenting flu-like symptoms since the season began.

At UCLA Medical Center in Santa Monica, the emergency room saw more than 200 patients on at least one day, mostly because of the flu. 46 states are reporting widespread flu.

"It really makes a big difference if you get people on it early in the course of their illness", Safranek said.

According to the Kentucky Department for Public Health, flu cases have been confirmed in 12 of the 17 regions of Kentucky.

For those who haven't gotten the flu, health officials recommend getting the vaccine, washing their hands often and avoiding close contact with anyone coughing or sneezing.

Though the flu killed three Californians by this time previous year, 68 people had died from it by the end of February, according to state data.

About 38 percent of this season's flu-related intensive care unit admissions happened during the last week of December, according to the IDPH.

"The patient census has been high the last three days, mostly with older patients who have flu and pneumonia", said Gene Vogelgesang, hospital spokesman. More than 15 times the number of influenza B detections have been reported this season as compared with the same period during the past seven seasons.

"It tends to cause more deaths and more hospitalizations than the other strains", Dr. Jeffrey Gunzenhauser, L.A. County's interim health officer.

He said he has heard from patients, doctors and nurses who have not bothered with the flu shot because of concerns with its usefulness. The B virus is widely considered less serious than its A counterpart, but a study released previous year by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found influenza B caused equally severe disease outcomes. Flu vaccination for children aged two to eight is easy carried out, with a simple nasal spray instead of a jab.

Flu season arrived early this year, and that is adding to the misery.

The good news is that it's not too late to get a flu shot.

Health officials told the Los Angeles Times on Friday that 27 people younger than 65 had died of the flu in California since October. People not staying home when they need to the most.
