Newport Beach, Is the Flu Near You?

It's flu season. Learn where to get vaccinated and how many have reported the flu in Newport Beach.

The flu is coming earlier than usual across California, and a new website helps you track it.

Nationwide, more than 2,250 people have been hospitalized, and 18 children have died between October and December, according to a Centers for Disease Control report.

Flu cases have been rising in California since October, according to FluNearYou.org. The site run by the Boston Children's Hospital tracks users who volunteer to take weekly health surveys.

"We are experiencing a flu season that has spiked early, but we are not done with it," a Sacramento physician told CBS News.

In Newport Beach last week, no one reported flu symptoms to FluNearYou, but that doesn't mean the virus isn't going around.
