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

Flu-like illnesses caused 167 outbreaks in Minnesota schools last week, making this season the worst for schoolchildren in five years.

With most classes dismissed this week for the holiday break, the next front for the flu's spread is likely to be at home or at community events, but the dominant flu strain this season is one that tends to affect children the most.
