This year’s flu epidemic might have reached its highest point already. According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control), the number of flu cases has begun to drop. Yet, that doesn’t mean the flu season is over. Although the virus is on the decline, new cases are appearing throughout the country.

The 2017-2018 flu season has been one of the worst in a decade. So far, more than 95 children have died from this current strain, H3N2, is very dangerous and deadly. This year’s flu vaccine is only 25% effective against it.

In spite of the fact that many who took the flu vaccination have been infected with the virus, the CDC is encouraging citizens to be immunized. Remember that there are three different strains affecting both young and old. Don’t forget to habitually wash your hands and drink plenty of water.
