More severe symptoms and death can also occur.

As of last week, the state had reported 165 flu-related deaths.

According to medical officials, this season's flu vaccine has been a "poor match" - at least for the dominant H3N2 influenza type A virus.

"For the first time this influenza season, Novant Health has seen a decline in the number of positive influenza tests in our hospitals and clinics", said Dr. David Priest, lead clinician with the system's infectious disease specialists.

Doctors told NBC News Friday that next season could be just as bad, as the flu vaccine will not be significantly different.

"Influenza (flu), a contagious respiratory illness which affects thousands of people in the Caribbean each year".

Dr. John Goldman, an infectious disease specialist at UPMC Pinnacle, said that even though the flu season is hitting residents harder this year, the emergency room is not always going to be the answer. If you are sick, stay away from others! "It's wonderful how much a cough can spread 20 feet without being covered". It is also recommended that you wash your hands. Hospitalization rates are still on the rise: 74.5 hospitalizations for each 100,000 people last week, an increase from 67.9 per 100,000 the week before. Cleaning surfaces with products containing chlorine, hydrogen peroxide, or other disinfectants can help reduce continued spread of the flu.

Last week, Cuomo said he will seek funding to reimburse county health departments for half the cost of any additional flu vaccine clinics or other flu prevention measures they are taking.
