More States Reporting Widespread Flu

(CNN) — The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is urging people to get their flu shots after the number of states reporting seasonal flu activity jumped from four to 10 last week.

New York, Texas and Alabama are among the states showing widespread activity.

Officials say the one atypical thing about this year is that the most common strain is H1N1.

Flu vaccines are recommended for everyone six months and older.
