After months of record-breaking widespread illness, CDC officials sad Monday that flu season has finally peaked.

Simpson said cases of the "bad" flu - the Influenza A virus subtype H3N2 - are decreasing but cases of Influenza B are on the rise, accounting for approximately 60 percent of all cases statewide.

The decline in influenza A is particularly important this flu season because it has been responsible for high rates of hospitalization and for the large number of pediatric deaths, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

"I think everyone is in agreement including the CDC that we're seeing fewer cases than we were seeing at what appears to be the peak of the season", he said. Last week, 5 percent of physician visits nationwide were for flu symptoms.

The worst of the flu season is likely over.

Nationally, public health officials last week said the worst of the flu season is over, although the level of transmission remains high. According to CDC, 9 percent of deaths in the United States were caused by diseases such as pneumonia and flu. Since October, 23,324 people have been hospitalized for influenza-associated complications. "This is why we have to get vaccinated every year, because the flu virus is notorious for changing".

The new cases bring this season's flu total to 6,674, the highest number since record-keeping began in the 2004-2005 season.

Although the overall number of flu cases have gone down, DPH says as the flu is still circulating in the community, there is still time to get a flu vaccine.

However, the division also announced five more people have died from the flu.

Haselow said people who haven't gotten the flu shot, which becomes fully effective about two weeks after it's administered, should still get one.
