Experts: Flu season winding down story image
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Experts say the flu season is winding down.

Despite an early start to the season, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say 105 children died of the flu this year, and that's about average.

The CDC says that 90 percent of the children who died from the disease were not vaccinated.

This year's vaccine didn't work especially well for older people, but was considered effective in children.

Doctors say children six months and older should be vaccinated every year, but typically only half get a flu shot or nasal spray.
