CHARLOTTE, N.C. (FOX 46 CHARLOTTE) - Temperatures are heating up, but the flu season doesn't seem to be cooling down.
We're seeing the longest flu season in at least a decade.
"Most of these are the type of flu that was not well covered by the strain of the vaccines we had," said Infectious Disease Specialist Dr. Arash Poursina.
Although the number of flu cases being seen right now is on a pretty low level, the sickness still seems to be lingering.
"Overall, it hasn't been a horrible flu season, but it's been a longer season because of the infection by the H3N2 -- which wasn't a match for the vaccine-- but we are not seeing too many hospitalizations anymore or doctor visits," said Poursina. "We do still see some activity, and I expect that to actually stop before the end of the month."
