With illness spreading and months of flu season left to go, experts still recommend getting a flu shot.

HSE's Assistant National Director for Public Health and Director of the Health Protection Surveillance Centre, Dr Kevin Kelleher, explains that data shows that flu levels are likely to increase over the coming weeks when flu begins to actively circulate in the community.

This time past year, there was a strong flu strain, forcing hospital facilities to impose strict visiting restrictions which remained in place ever since.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says 80,000 people died nationally, including 180 children, during last year's flu season. "The most important thing is to get vaccinated ahead of time".

"We are seeing the shift from the elderly people in the last couple of years, while this year is more of a younger demographic", said Dr. Silvina Mema, Interior Health Medical Health Officer.

As of December 29, the most recent data available from the Public Health Agency of Canada shows there were 13,796 laboratory-confirmed influenza cases across the country, with the provinces and territories reporting 1,046 hospitalizations and 24 deaths.

He said children were not among the flu fatalities so far and they also do not include any pregnant women. The death toll is lower, too, having reached a total of 91 at this point last season. That's more than double the activity of the previous week. At least one death has been documented by the network of 12 pediatric hospitals across the country that reports to PHAC, but for privacy reasons the agency does not release the exact number, saying only that there have been fewer than five. But there are some symptoms that only come with the flu that might help those who are sick confirm that they have the flu instead of a cold.
