The severity of last year's flu season, which killed an estimated 80,000 people, may be one of the reasons behind the slow start to the 2018-2019 season.

Pregnant women, children younger than five years old, adults 65 and older, and people with chronic medical conditions, such as heart disease, asthma and diabetes should contact their doctors immediately if they experience flu symptoms.

"It is recommended that people still get the flu vaccination if they have not already", said infectious disease expert Dr. David Cennimo of Rutgers New Jersey Medical School.

Data shows that the number of flu cases are likely to spike in the coming weeks.

And, the seasonal flu can "shift and mutate" each year, which is why there are various flu vaccines available. As of last week, this flu season had hospitalized 14.5 children younger than 5 years old, per 100,000 population.

So far this year, only 4,122 cases of flu in Missouri have been laboratory confirmed.

The hospital also encourages the public to get their flu shots as soon as possible. Hospitals do not offer flu shots or routinely test for the flu.

As of the end of December, the rate of outpatient visits for influenza-like illnesses (ILIs) had almost doubled from the national baseline, as the 2018-19 influenza (flu) season continues to see a variation of influenza A strains predominately affect the country.

Ottawa's hospitals and Ottawa Public Health are encouraging people who think they have the flu to stay home and rest, take plenty of liquids and ibuprofen or acetaminophen for aches and fever.
