This is the third highest level of flu activity in the state over the past eight years. And the number of cases is still rapidly rising.

Health officials cannot predict if this year's activity will surpass previous years.

Six children have died due to complications from the flu this year in the United States, according to health officials. None lived in Michigan.

But because the flu is peaking now, that doesn't mean you can't catch it in March. If you have not gotten sick with influenza yet, there is still time to get a flu shot.
