The flu has hit just about every state this season, with California seeing more flu-related deaths than usual. Most victims, state officials have said, were not vaccinated.

But it's not too late to get that flu shot. Plenty of pharmacies, medical clinics and health departments are still giving the shots - and there's enough to go around.

COLD VS FLU: How to tell the difference

There have been nearly 30 flu-related deaths among Californians under age 65, said Dr. James Watt, chief of the state's division of communicable disease control. Typically, he said, the state sees three or four such deaths by this time in the season.

And, it's too soon to know if it will peak sooner or get worse, he noted.
