Massachusetts is one of six states in  the country currently reporting widespread flu activity.  

Although that sounds daunting, officials say you should take it all in stride for now.

The  Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says this year's flu season  is tracking on par with other seasons.  

State residents are urged to get  a flu shot if they have not received one already.  

The vaccine is  expected to be effective against this year's flu strain.
