"In Canada it's still too early to actually tell how effective this vaccine will be", Dr. Theresa Tam told CBC News.

If you or a family member has a chronic medical condition that puts you at high risk for flu and flu-related complications, I recommend you talk to your doctor ahead of time to decide if these anti-virals are appropriate should you develop symptoms.

In the March announcement for the 2017-2018 season in the northern hemisphere, the World Health Organization recommended trivalent vaccines that include A (H1N1) pdm09, A (H3N2), and B (Brisbane/Victoria lineage). Please go get your vaccine if you haven't already.

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.

Island Health has finished their public flu shot clinics for the year but recommends going to your local pharmacy or clinic to get immunized.

The flu usually comes on suddenly, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and often includes fever or feverish chills, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle or body aches, headaches and fatigue.

However, the latest type B influenza was mostly Yamagata lineage, not Victoria lineage, according to KCDC.

The predominant flu strain this year is H3N2, a form of influenza A. This strain is included in this year's flu vaccine, but information on how effective the vaccine has been is typically not available until the flu season is over. The other type of vaccine - called "trivalent" because it covers three strains of flu - "unfortunately" doesn't cover that B strain. Last week, the number of people who died from the flu this year was only 0.2 percent below that threshold.

"We watch flu very carefully throughout the health authority. Certainly we're seeing that in the hospital", he said.

Part of the reason for the spike is this season's strain of the flu, H3N2.

"Last year we saw the peak in February", State health department spokeswoman Melaney Arnold said. People can find a place to get vaccinated at vaccinefinder.org. "It's really common sense", Hassoun said. We don't know everything about it but we know that one tends to cause more severe illness.

"Even though it's not flawless, it's still the best protection we have".
