The preliminary figures released Friday don't include estimates of flu-related deaths, which officials said will be provided at a later time, when there is sufficient data to support a more precise estimate.

Three preschoolers have died in Saskatchewan as a result of the flu so far this season, according to the provincial health ministry.

One Oklahoma County resident and 12 others around the state have died of flu so far this season, according to the Oklahoma City-County Health Department. In the past, CDC provided these estimates at the end of each flu season.

"Calculations are based on adjusted rates of laboratory-confirmed, influenza-associated hospitalizations collected through a surveillance network that covers approximately 8.5 percent of the USA population, or about 27 million people", the CDC said.

Flu season is not over, and it's not too late to get vaccinated, Fry said.

The CDC said that reported cases tend to increase in November before peaking between December and February. Flu is widespread in 30 states, according to the latest data, and the season is expected to last for several more weeks. People might also get flu by touching a contaminated surface or object that has flu virus on it and then touching their own mouth or nose. People who are very sick or who are at high risk of serious flu complications and get flu symptoms should see a health care provider early in their illness for possible treatment with a flu antiviral drug.
