The flu is widespread across 48 US states right now. Scientists at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say doctors are seeing as many patients right now as they did at the height of the 2009 H1N1 flu pandemic. The epidemic this season is not at pandemic levels, but it has been especially tough on baby boomers. CDC officials say that could be in part because they weren't exposed to this year's most aggressive H3N2 strain as children. It's nearly impossible to predict how this flu season will end, as flu viruses don't follow predictable models from year to year.
