This year’s flu season has been mild so far, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said. 

According to the CDC, the total number of lab-confirmed flu cases for the season is below 500.

However, that doesn't count people with the flu who don't see a doctor. 

Doctors' visits for flu-like illness are also below normal. Despite the low number of confirmed cases, experts said you should still go get a flu shot.
