US, Wisconsin : Milwaukee flu hospitalizations up significantly from last year

Via Journal Sentinel :

" Two months into the flu season, Milwaukee already has reported more than five times the number of influenza-related hospitalizations as last year. 

More than half of those people did not get a flu shot, according to a city health department analysis released late Friday.

Twenty-three people in the city have been hospitalized with the flu so far this year, compared with just four this time last year. 
That count represents about half of all flu hospitalizations reported statewide and marks an increase from late November, when 15 flu-related hospitalizations were reported statewide and about half were in Milwaukee County."
