The flu is not over yet. 

This season is different- it is hitting younger people. Monroe County reports 1,200 cases of the flu. A total of 240 people have been hospitalized and there was one death. About two thirds of cases of affected people ages 18 to 64. Doctors say previous exposure to this particular strain has helped them to avoid the flu.
