Type of flu
The type of flu that is going around is called H3N2, which is often linked to more serious disease, compared with some other flu varieties, Fauci said.
That type of flu matches up well to the vaccine that is being distributed and given out throughout the United States.
People may get more complications from this particular strain of H3N2, "which may make them ill for a longer period of time," Dr. Michael Jhung, medical epidemiologist in the influenza division at the CDC, told CNN's Mary Snow.
Symptoms typically last up to seven days for a normal infection, he said.
