CDC warning of dominant strain of flu this year
If you haven't had a flu shot yet, you may want to consider it.
The Centre for Disease Control is warning people to take precautions against the flu.
Flu season has officially begun, and the CDC says the dominant strain this year is the H1N1.
It's the same flu virus that killed 50-million people in the pandemic of 1918.
This year, it's still too early to tell if H1N1 will infect a majority of those who get the flu, but a CDC spokesperson says most flu activity so far this season has been driven by H1N1 infections.
Health Canada's last FluWatch report found influenza activity continued to increase in December.
The first FluWatch report of 2019 will come out tomorrow.
