Flu season is upon us, and here is the first installment of our weekly Flu Report for the 2015-2016 influenza season. In this weekly blog post, we update you on influenza activity in the United States and throughout the world, what you can do to protect yourself and your family from the disease, and other influenza-related topics.
The Flu Report runs from September through April and is posted every Wednesday. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, feel free to comment below, on Facebook or via Twitter. You may also email our editorial team.
In this week’s report, we review the available flu data and note the changes in this year’s Flu Report from last year’s version. Next week, September 9, will be our first official report of the flu season, and we look forward to providing you with the most up-to-date and relevant data as the season progresses.
