Flu activity is low in most of the United States, but influenza viruses are still causing illness. CDC continues to recommend vaccination as long as flu viruses are still circulating. 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.

As flu season wraps up in the United States, the Southern Hemisphere is beginning its flu season. With large numbers of people congregating in Brazil for the 2014 World Cup this June and July, CDC is recommending that travelers to the region who have not yet gotten a flu vaccine during the 2013-14 season, get vaccinated now.
