Old School Flu is Back This Flu Season

This season’s flu is worse than in past years, in part because we have not seen this flu strain in a while and we don’t have immunity. Maine state health officials believe it could get worse before it gets better. Maine is seeing an earlier flu season and one that’s more severe.

Officials expect the flu to spread more after the holidays as travelers return home and children go back to school. This year, the flu started earlier than normal. Officials in Maine and around the nation have been seeing more flu before the traditional post-holiday increase.

Heath officials say it is never too late for a flu shot and if you are sick, you should stay at home, wash your hands often and cough into your sleeves and not hands. If you are not sick, the hand washing thing is good for you too. It really makes a difference. Wash those germs away!
