FAIRBANKS — Flu season in Alaska for 2011-2012 ran the same course as it did nationally, according to a notice last week from the state Section of Epidemiology.

“Sporadic influenza activity occurred throughout the early winter in Alaska, with increased activity in March, and was widespread from April through the last week of May, with sporadic activity occurring since then,” according to the Alaska Influenza Surveillance Update.

Influenza A (2009 H1N1 and H3) viruses were dominant in the early part of the season, while influenza B activity increased later in the season, the report stated.

Alaska health officials report influenza activity to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention from October through mid-May each year.
