JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The flu is on the rise in the Magnolia state.

The state's rate of flu-like illnesses rose to 4-percent in the last week of December.

That's the highest for the season, but BELOW usual levels.

Health workers say now is a good time to get a flu shot... especially young children, older adults, and pregnant women.

It takes about two weeks for a flu shot to offer maximum immunity.
