   According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there have been more than 8,000 hospitalizations associated with influenza and more than 60 percent have been among people ages 18 to 64 years old. 
     The agency says the peak of flu season happened a month earlier than the usually highest activity period in January /February.
