CDC says flu season may be leveling off

The CDC says this flu season may finally be leveling off.

Health officials said Friday that for the first time since November, the number of patients with flu-like symptoms stayed the same in the past week rather than going up.

Health officials reported 22 more pediatric deaths, bringing the total this season to 84.

Officials say the flu shot has been just 36-percent effective.
