CDC Says Flu Season is Over

If you managed to avoid catching the flu this year you may be in the clear.

The Centers for Disease Control says flu season is now over.

All in all, the CDC says this season was mild compared to other years.

It says 26 children died from the illness, the lowest number since the CDC started tracking this data.

The agency says this year also set a new record for having lowest and shortest peak for flu-like illness since it started keeping track.

The mild winter and the fact that more people are getting flu shots could account for that.
