ST. LOUIS, Mo. ( -

Flu season may have just started but numbers are projecting this season could be one of the worst in a long time.

So far, 900 people have tested positive for the flu already. At this time last year there were just 250 cases.

The highest number of cases usually happen between November and March. There is usually a peak during the holidays as families get together.

If you have not gotten the flu shot, doctors recommend doing so as soon as possible.
