According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 80,000 people died nationwide last flu season from the illness, which was the highest death toll in at least four decades. And activity is "starting to increase" in this season, Schultz said.

The dominant flu strain this year is H1N1 - the same virus that was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization in 2009 after it caused hundreds of thousands of deaths around the world.

Officials say six of those cases were in brown county, one in Winnebago County, three in Outagamie County and two in the city of Appleton.

The report said most colds don't result in more serious health problems that lead to hospital visits. When that strain predominated, almost 1 million Americans were hospitalized and 80,000 died.

Although the proportion of laboratory-confirmed flu cases continues to rise, and parts of the country are seeing sharp increases in activity, it's too early to say how severe the flu season will be, says Kristen Nordlund, a CDC press officer. "So it's very important to wash our hands", she said.

"The numbers that we're seeing right now we would normally see at the end of January", she said.

His best advice heading into flu season? A total of 12 children had died from the flu at the end of week 51 past year. Wisconsin health officials say while the flu season is now mild, it hasn't reached its peak yet. But get the flu shot sooner rather than later, since the vaccine can take up to two weeks to fully help protect the body. This year's flu shot, which is engineered to anticipate the types of flu that will be prevalent, appears to be effective. For all ages, including children age 6 months and older. People at high risk of flu complications include pregnant women, older adults, young children and people with chronic medical conditions like asthma, cerebral palsy, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cystic fibrosis, epilepsy, HIV/AIDS, kidney or liver disease, muscular dystrophy, obesity or sickle cell disease.

You can not get the flu from the injectable vaccine given to most adults.

Eighty percent of pediatric flu deaths previous year were in children who had not been vaccinated. "It is the best defense we have against the flu".
