Ottawa, in contrast, was seeing a lower rate of influenza overall and among children than the national rates as of the end of the year (the most recent numbers).

As of December 29, the most recent data available from the Public Health Agency of Canada shows there were 13,796 laboratory-confirmed influenza cases across the country, with the provinces and territories reporting 1,046 hospitalizations and 24 deaths.

That total represents roughly one-fifth of the 10,335 confirmed cases at this time last flu season. (Lab-confirmed cases represent a small percentage of all flu cases, often just the ones that require hospitalization).

Since September, PHAC says 414 children under age 16 have been hospitalized for flu, with the highest estimated rate of admission among kids under five years of age.

Two more people have died from the flu in San Diego County, bringing this season's total to 11, according to County News Center.

Health officials urged state residents to get flu shots and take precautions during flu seasons, including washing your hands frequently, covering any coughs and sneezes and staying home if you are sick. H3N2, the strain largely responsible for last year's outbreak, has so far been less common than the H1N1 strain.

Although most people who get the flu recover within a few days or a couple of weeks, some can develop pneumonia and life-threatening complications.
