|Flu Activity Increases in Tennessee|
H1N1 is Primary Strain Now Circulating
With flu activity on the rise across the state, doctors are urging residents to protect themselves by getting vaccinated. Dr. Tim Jones with the Tennessee Department of Health says the primary strain they're seeing now is the H-1-N-1 that emerged in 2009 and 2010.
Jones says the H-1-N-1 strain is among those covered with this year's flu vaccine. It is recommended for everyone ages six months and older and doctors say it's especially important for those who have regular contact with high-risk populations. That includes pregnant women, people with chronic health problems, young children and the elderly.
