The flu season typically peaks between Christmas and New Year's Eve, said Waters.
Dr. William Schaffner, medical director for the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases, said that those who get the flu after receiving a vaccine are less likely to require hospitalization and they're less likely to die.
As of January 12, more than 600 children aged 16 and under had been hospitalized, with 93 of them ending up in intensive care and at least seven - all under age 10 - dying from complications of the flu, says the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC).

A year ago in January, the practice tested 268 patients and saw 107 positive results with Influenza B being the most common. Vermont and New Hampshire are not seeing that many cases but the numbers are growing.
Coughing, sneezing, and body aches are all signs of the flu. For adults, flu deaths are estimated based on pneumonia and other illnesses related to flu.
Waters said the strain that was most common previous year was the H3N2 strain, which affected seniors.
Of the more than 230 people hospitalized with H1N1, 48 were children nine years and younger.
That can also shorten the course of your illness and lower the odds that you'll have serious complications from the flu, he says. Older people and others with weakened immune systems may not generate the same amount of antibodies after vaccination; further, their antibody levels may drop more quickly when compared to young, healthy people.
