Peak flu season continues with widespread influenza reported in 49 states.
• Outpatient visits for influenza like illness and hospitalizations both increased over the last week.
• Influenza A (primarily H1N1) and Influenza B are prevalent.
• Children and young adults (<25 years) account for over 50% of influenza positive test results from public health laboratories this season (predominantly Influenza B).
The flu vaccine does not appear to be a good match for the Influenza B strain.
The duration of this unusual flu season is still uncertain given that these two strains are both circulating across the country.
Triple Flu Defense 2019-2020 has been effective for both stomach and respiratory flu symptoms.
