We are in the middle of the Influenza (flu) season which occurs anywhere from November of each year to March of the following year.
The flu shot is the best way to protect yourself and your family.
State and federal public health officials say the best way to avoid the flu is to get vaccinated.
Widespread flu is being reported at high levels across the Mountain State and in more than 30 other states, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. While some people who are immunized may still get infected with the virus, the flu vaccine can drastically reduce the length and severity of the illness.
Only about 20% of people with confirmed cases have gotten the flu shot.
However, Propes noted that while flu is already active locally, those who have yet to receive a flu shot are still recommended to do so.
"Local residents are encouraged to get their seasonal influenza vaccine as soon as possible, since it takes about two weeks for the vaccine to provide protection", the health unit report stated.
Keep well-hydrated and get enough sleep / rest for optimal functioning of your immune system.
Flu hospitalization rates are also higher than expected for this time of year, especially in children through four years old, and the rate of hospitalization is more than double the national rate in the age group.

According to information provided by Beaumont, only under "extraordinary circumstances", such as the serious illness of a parent, sibling or end-of-life situations, will children younger than 13-years-old be allowed to visit. When their visitors are immunized, that also make them less likely to spread the flu to them.
Since Sept. 1, 28 people in the London area have been hospitalized for the flu, the health unit said in a report made public Wednesday.
