Flu season off to slow start

Experts say this year's flu season is off to a slow start after the H1N1-linked drama of prior years. The low number of cases is reassuring.

Low flu activity is being reported across the country, but health care professionals say as we move to February activity is expected to increase.

Flu behavior is notoriously unpredictable, so current activity cannot be relied on to predict the rest of the season.

Experts say it is still not too late to get the vaccine if you have not already done so.
