"The season is really starting to pick up", said Lynnette Brammer, the lead of CDC's domestic influenza surveillance team.

29 people were hospitalized with flu-like symptoms in the Milwaukee area on Thursday.

The CDC's "flu view" map is based on outpatient visits to healthcare providers for influenza-like illness.

In 1918, H1N1 flu killed 50 million people around the world.

"People with symptoms should stay at home and children should not attend school if showing signs of flu", he added.

Officials said they are investigating the three cases.

There were more flu-related deaths a year ago: 34 by the end of December. When that strain predominated, almost 1 million Americans were hospitalized and 80,000 died.

There are already 1,457 reported flu cases, which is slightly higher than what was reported this time last season.

"It's too soon to say what direction it will go", said Lynnette Brammer, head of the CDC's domestic influenza surveillance team.

"We recommend the flu shot because the virus is dead in the shot; the virus is still living in the nasal spray", said Thompson.

To date, six of the Arkansas flu deaths were in the 45-64 age group and one over the age 65. Most of these hospitalizations have been young children. "I expect activity to continue for several more weeks".

"It's miserable between feeling just rundown, disgusting headaches, and the sweats", said Stephen Canter, a father who is anxious about the flu.

A limited supply of free influenza vaccine will be available for this event on a first-come, first-served basis. "The main thing right now is to get vaccinated", she said.

"It has a predilection for people who have a previous medical condition like asthma or respiratory disease and for pregnant women". "It can take up to two weeks after being vaccinated to develop ideal protection against influenza, and that's why getting your flu shot early is so important".

The girl, who did not get the flu jab either, was admitted to Princess Margaret Hospital on December 26.
