The death total for North Carolina this flu season stands at 253.

According to data provided by the City's Health Department, all of the reported flu deaths this year have been in patients above the age of 50, most of whom were between the ages of 70 and 100. That's down 18,250 from the week before.

The flu season usually runs through May.

Almost 18,300 people have been hospitalized. The agency recommends injections over nasal sprays, which the CDC has not recommended for the past two years because of lower effectiveness.

The flu has been devastating this year By the end of the season in May, an estimated 34 million Americans will have been infected.

It also made an appearance during the 1997-1998 and 2003-2004 flu seasons and was once again bad.

The lethal toll of the flu this season serves as a reminder of the severity of the virus, Martinello said. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lists flu and pneumonia as the eighth leading causes of death in the United States, immediately after diabetes.

February saw the first reported pediatric death related to the flu. I really do wish more people got flu shots.

"The difference to what you would buy in a supermarket is just that they have an embryo in them", Krammer said.

County health departments are offering a free, high-dose vaccine for people in that age group.

Moody and Jhaveri said another strain of the flu could become active, or the now active strain could find its way to vulnerable populations. In the past week, a 6-year-old boy in Colchester died from the flu.

Public health authorities are urging people to get vaccinated.
