Flu season is picking up and Merrimack County is seeing the most activity in New Hampshire, but so far the dominant strain of influenza circulating through the country is relatively mild.
Elizabeth Daley, chief of the Bureau of Infectious Disease Control for the state, said that in New Hampshire, as in most of the country, one particular strain of influenza is so far the most common.
“The strain seems to be H1N1 predominating, although it’s too early to know if that’s the one that will stay predominant … The vaccine is typically a good match for this strain,” said Daley.
