We’ve all heard by now that this is no ordinary flu season. According to msn.com, this years flu season is the earliest to hit since 2003-2004, and in some hospitals across the state, emergency room visits due to the flu like symptoms are nearly double what they were last year.

The report says that New Jersey remains on the list of states that are reporting widespread influenza activity. There are 24 states on that list, but that number is down from 29 states last week. The CDC says that the flu vaccine is 62% effective and it’s not too late to get one.

Is it any surprise that this flu season would be a particularly severe one? It seems like nothing has been easy around the Garden State lately. So now it’s time to do everything we can to avoid a particularly nasty flu season.
