The 2014-2015 Influenza Season has been a doozy! According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, flu activity has been elevated in the United State as of February 28, 2015.

The CDC states in a recent article:

"Mismatched H3N2 flu viruses continue to predominate; however, more recently, an increase in influenza B viruses has been detected in parts of the country. The predominance of H3N2 viruses this season has caused a significant burden of serious disease in older people. The flu-associated hospitalization rate among people 65 and older is the highest rate recorded since CDC began tracking that data in 2005. As of February 28, the hospitalization rate in this age group this season is 266.1 per 100,000 population. The previous highest hospitalization rate recorded was 183.2 per 100,000 population during the 2012-13 flu season (also among people 65 and older). (2012-2013 was the last H3N2 predominant season.) Overall, nearly 60 percent of flu-associated hospitalizations have been among people 65 years and older this season."

With all this being said, please stay safe out there! Make sure to intake enough vitamin C to protect your immune system, and stay hydrated throughout the day!
