Everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccine each year, according to the Minnesota Department of Health.

Minnesota schools are reporting a surge in flu outbreaks as an unusual mix of early flu strains continues to spread statewide and take a toll on children.

The state recorded 60 outbreaks of flu-like illness last week - a nearly fivefold increase from the prior week, according to an influenza tracking update released Thursday by the Minnesota Department of Health.
