This year's flu season is shaping up to be a nasty one. The strain is considered especially unsafe to young children and older adults over the age of 65. The last time Arizona saw a surge in flu cases and deaths was in 2009, when the H1N1 strain broke out, which led to the deaths of over 900 Arizonans.
