The Illinois Department of Public Health is not expecting a decrease any time soon with more reported cases from previous weeks coming in, but the flu vaccine is still available and may help those with current health problems avoid the virus.
The only thing that is spreading faster than the flu these days seems to be this question: Did you get a flu shot this season?
Health officials on Monday said suspected flu cases have jumped in five Southern states, and the primary strain circulating tends to make people sicker than other types.
As flu season approaches, germs are spreading faster than holiday cheer. Traveling through a highly populated place, such as an airport, raises the risk of contracting the seasonal flu.
As people get together for the holidays, flu and other respiratory illnesses are easily spread. Now is a good time to consider getting the flu vaccine to protect yourself, your family and your friends.
Ann Censotti, 59, a licensed clinical social worker from the Andersonville neighborhood on Chicago's North Side, received her flu shot last month because she works closely with older people who are especially vulnerable to the flu.
INDIANAPOLIS | State lawmakers may require hospitals to report their employee immunization rates to shame medical workers into getting an annual flu shot.
INDIANAPOLIS | State health officials reminded Hoosiers Monday that the "stomach flu" is not influenza, hoping to avoid confusion during the winter flu season.
