2014-2015 Influenza Season Week 6 ending February 14, 2015
Flu activity is still widespread across most of the country but has begun to decline. However, it is possible that flu activity will continue for several weeks in parts of the country.
This season has been severe for people 65 years and older, with very high hospitalization rates being recorded.
Influenza antiviral drugs can treat flu illness. CDC recommends these drugs be used to treat people who are very sick or who are at high risk of serious flu-related complications who have flu symptoms. Early antiviral treatment works best.
