Confirmed Flu Cases Jump 50% in NYS

The flu season does not seem to be slowing down. 

The state health department released the latest week's numbers showing a 50% jump in confirmed flu cases from the week before. 

The Capital Region is tied for second highest flu rates in the state. 

The CDC says this year's flu shot protects against all flu viruses and can at least reduce the severity of the flu if you get it.
