Federal health officials continue to warn Americans about this year's flu outbreak. 

Officials with the Centers for Disease Control say this year's flu season is shaping up to be the worst in a decade. In New York State, hospitalizations for the flu are up 169 percent from last year. A spokesperson for UMMC says there are currently five admissions for the flu in the hospital, as well as 15 positive reports in the lab each day. She did not have readily-accessible data to compare to last flu season.

CDC officials say with three more months of flu season still to go, it’s important everyone gets vaccinated to help stop the outbreak.
