US - There's rising concern among health officials about the flu.
41 states reported widespread flu activity last week up from 31 the previous week.
Since October 1st the CDC reports more than 2200 flu hospitalizations have been confirmed and roughly 8 out of every 100,000 people in the US have been hospitalized with the flu.
Experts say, it's not too late to get your flu shot and protect yourself.
According to Dr. Sarah Haessler, "We're peaking much earlier we're coming up much earlier. We don't know what the curve is going to look like. So is it going to go up and stay high or is it going to come up and come back down."
