The total number of pediatric flu deaths reported this season has now climbed to 20, with seven deaths reported last week.

The flu season started early, which is never a good sign, and the flu is already widespread throughout the country, the CDC's latest report shows.

The St. Louis County Department of Public Health reports 1,282 cases of influenza in the first week of January.

Health officials say all those indicators point to a potentially severe flu season, and Minnesota may not have seen the peak of the season yet.

"It's not too late to get your flu shot".

Officials say this flu season, which is dominated by the H3N2 virus, is similar in severity to 2014-15. North Idaho seems to be getting hit harder than other parts of the state, and about half of the deaths have occurred there, Pedersen said.

But standing in their way are the Tennessee Titans , who have reached the playoffs for the first time since 2008. Unfortunately, this is the New England Patriots . "For a young guy like me, that's what you aspire to be.

On Thursday, Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey declared a statewide public health emergency to help hospitals that are filled to capacity with flu patients.

In addition, while influenza A (H3N2) viruses have been the most common ones circulating nationally, influenza B has been the most common strain circulating in some regions of the state, including central NY. (The District of Columbia is an exception.) This week's data is also the first time the proportion of deaths linked to the flu and pneumonia has crossed what the CDC sets as its "epidemic" threshold. At the time, it estimated about 80 surgeries would be affected, and said the cancellations would not affect emergency or cancer surgeries. The CDC is expecting this year's vaccine to be 30% effective.

"We're only midway through the flu season this year, we will probably see a change in those numbers", said Hokanson.

Flu season in the United States is usually in the wintertime between September and May.

He said at the pharmacy where he works in Dauphin, Man., they've given 1,000 flu shots so far this year, a record number. Fever or chills, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle or body aches, headaches, fatigue and vomiting and diarrhea, which is more common in young children than adults. "The infection can be severe and, if you are compromised in any way, it has the potential for being life threatening", she said. The CDC recommends anyone six months and older get vaccinated. "They can also take a number of proactive steps to lower the chances they and others will be infected with the flu, such as washing hands frequently, covering their cough and not touching their eyes, nose and mouth".
