"For children under the age of 2, parents should contact their primary pediatrician".

The CDC says the virus killed three people so far this season, and more people are being hospitalized. That's the strain that was circulating widely last year, when we had a really bad year for flu.

Kids under the age of five have been particularly vulnerable to the flu virus this year, with a higher rate of confirmed cases based on the percentage of the population.
