So far, the flu season is turning out to be not that bad.
The BC Centre for Disease Control says most surveillance indicators continue to show low-level flu activity in the province.
Across Canada, flu activity is also low.
This, despite the fact the flu shot this year is only providing 30- to 50-per cent protection from the H3N2 strain.
Those who do fall ill are mainly over the age of 65.
As well, BC Children’s Hospital’s ER is seeing more youngsters coming in with flu-like symptoms.
