Flu season is finally 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.
