Rates of flu-like illness in the state continued their upward creep this week. If past normal flu seasons are any guide, it's likely that we'll see flu rates hit their peak over the next few weeks. That's the good news — the flip side of that is that we can expect flu to continue circulating in our communities even into spring.

What to do? Get a flu shot if you haven't gotten one already. Plenty of vaccine continues to be available — contact your health care provider, your local health department or pharmacy to find the flu vaccine closest to you.
