According to the CDC, there were 22.7 hospitalizations per 100,000 people in the USA last week - up from 13.7 the previous week.
"We're not seeing anything that's alarmingly high", Allen said.
While the 2017/18 flu season has reached widespread populations, data show more people are choosing to get vaccinated ahead of the outbreaks. During the week that ended December 31, there were 2,887 laboratory-confirmed cases. "They've found through research that in the winter months there are congregations of people and that provides an excellent mode of transmission".
"Influenza like illnesses happens", she said.
A person receives the seasonal influenza vaccine (flu shot). In the first week of 2018 alone, 425 new cases were reported from 38 counties.
It's also never too late in the season to get a flu shot.

Stacey Anderson of the DPHHS Communicable Disease Epidemiology section agrees.
The trivalent and quadrivalent flu jabs could protect against the specific Aussie flu virus - a mutated H3N2 influenza A virus. Therefore, you could still have the flu, even though your rapid test result is negative. This helps improve the effectiveness of flu vaccines used in the United States.
"In the Southern hemisphere for some reason or other it seemed to be very aggressive and we saw a lot more deaths, but in Manitoba for sure we're not seeing we're having a whole lot more people dying", said Dr. Richard Rusk, medical officer of health for communicable diseases.
If you are sick, stay home from school or work.
Hospitalizations may also be on the upswing, especially between adults across time of fifty and kids under the time of 5.
"Our hospital rates and our ICU rates, they're up there, but they're always in the expected and accepted ranges", said Rusk. All rooms also have hand-sanitizing stations inside and outside the entrance door.
