We haven't hit the peak of flu season yet but the virus is already widespread in 10 states including New York and Massachusetts.

The Centers for Disease Control says every state in the U.S. currently has reported cases of the flu.

If you haven't gotten the flu shot, it is not too late.

The shot takes about two weeks to become effective.
