Towards the end of November, the percentage of visits to the doctor attributing to influenza-like illness (fever, sore throat, cough, or a combination) was 2.2 percent.
This percentage matches the national baseline. Texas, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Alabama have reported high flu activity.
This year marks the earliest flu season in almost a decade. The CDC is urging people to be vaccinated as soon as possible. It is also important to wash your hands, cover your mouth and stay home if you experience flu-like symptoms.
