Flu activity is low in most of the United States, but a wave of influenza B virus activity is affecting parts of the country. It's possible that significant flu activity could continue into May. CDC still recommends that people get a flu vaccine if they have not yet this season. And remember that flu antiviral drugs are a second line of defense to treat flu illness. People at high risk of serious flu illness should call a health care provider if they get flu symptoms.
