Think you’ve gotten by this season without getting the flu?
Think again. The worst of this year’s influenza season hasn’t hit yet.
CDC statistics show that between 1983 and 2008, the peak influenza activity is more than twice as likely to occur in February than in any other month.
Most states were starting to see “sporadic” influenza activity in mid-January – the latest data available right now.
Google Flu Trends is showing a slow but steady rise in inquiries. It also shows that January and February are typically the most active months for web searches about influenza year after year.
It’s almost heeeere…
Hope you got your flu shot.
