Indiana is on pace to have one of the deadliest flu seasons ever. Right now 40 Hoosiers have died of flu related illnesses. That's the most in 5 years - and the flu season doesn't end until Mid-May. Some 91 people died of the flu in 2004, and officials say having as many people as possible get flu shots is the best deterrent against getting near that number again. The current flu vaccine does protect against the H3-N2 flu strain - and it seems to be the most prevalent in the state right now- with health officials saying the hardest hit are the elderly, and those with pre-existing medical conditions.
