Tam said there are also anti-viral medications, such as Tamiflu and zanamivir, to treat flu and help prevent outbreaks in long-term care homes and other facilities.

Tam said that given the burden of influenza B on kids, the national advisory committee on immunization recommends children receive the "quadrivalent" vaccine, which protects against four strains of flu, including two B strains. They include the Tri City Health Partnership in St. Charles, which serves people who are uninsured or underinsured; it has ample vaccines on hand, said Kim Lamansky, executive director.

The state tracks only deaths from flu of patients younger than 65; the total death toll is much higher than figures reported statewide.

Harding said the main reason for the rough flu season stems from the Centers for Disease Control missing the mark on the vaccine to combat the current strain.

Anyone who is particularly at risk - including the elderly and those with heart and/or lung conditions - should seek immediate medical attention if they show flu-like symptoms.
