The flu has infected millions of people across the country this season.
Now the CDC says the nasty flu strain is sparking a second wave of high activity and severe infections.
32 states are reporting they are being hit hard with flu activity.
The CDC estimates since October 1 there’s been as many as 26 million illnesses, up to 12 million medical visits, nearly 350,000 hospitalizations and up to 31,000 deaths, which includes 64 children ñ all related to the flu.
And the CDC believes these numbers could be gravely highe because not all flu related deaths are detected or reported.
CDC health officials say the flu vaccination is your best defense against the flu.
