Seattle has seen a higher rate of influenza activity than average this winter. Some cities, like Chicago and Boston, are seeing particularly large increases in the flu. Since it is relatively early in the flu season for the level of activity being reported, it is critical to remember that vaccination against flu is the best way to prevent it from spreading.
