New Flu Strain Accounts For Almost Half of All New Cases

Just when you think the flu season should be winding down, a new strain of influenza accounts for nearly half of all the new cases being reported according to the U S Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the local medical community. H1N1 is now moving over for the H3N2 strain and  there seems to be more flu to come.

Ben Pegues with CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital in Sulphur Springs reminds local residents to get vaccinated if they have not. If vaccinated and you get the flu, the illness will be milder than it would be without the vaccination.

Flu activity is high in 30 states and is found in 48 states. Texas is among those states with a higher rate.
