As of January 13 of the 2017-18 season, flu attributed to 3.23 percent of all outpatient visits in Iowa.
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, last year's flu and complications from it killed 80,000 people - the highest national influenza death toll in 40 years.
"So that's why I think we're seeing this year more younger people represented in the tallies of hospitalizations with H1N1", she said.
So far, nearly eight thousand lab confirmed cases of the flu have been reported in Missouri.
A year ago in January, the practice tested 268 patients and saw 107 positive results with Influenza B being the most common.
"Last year's flu season was notable for the severity, the number of people affected and the rate of hospitalizations", said Dr. Caitlin Pedati, state epidemiologist and medical director of the Iowa Department of Public Health. And, the CDC says over the last two weeks, flu activity nationwide is on the rise.
More than 4,200 lab-confirmed people were hospitalized due to flu, and the majority of them were adults aged above 65 years and children younger than 5 years, according the the report.
An increase in flu activity over the last week has led to school closures in at least 12 states, including New Jersey. The organization estimates that flu has resulted in between 9.2 million and 35.6 million illnesses each year in the United States and several deaths.
The Maine CDC says residents should also be vigilant about washing their hands, covering their mouths when they cough and staying home when they are sick. This is impossible. The flu vaccine contains an inactivated virus or no flu virus at all, so it can not give you the flu.
"The more that we have, the better estimates that we are able to get, and the earlier we're able to get - particularly our mid-season estimates like this one, which are very important to understand and to help people decide on policy for the rest of the season".
The CDC recommends vaccination against the flu for everyone 6 months and older. Finally, when people encounter the social influence of someone like a health care provider who encourages vaccines, people are more likely to get vaccinated.
Because flu viruses are constantly changing, flu vaccines are updated from one season to the next to protect against the most recent and most common circulating flu strains.
