Flu season is up and running but it's only hitting people sporadically right now.
The latest flu report from the Minnesota Department of Health shows on this second week of the flu season, only two people were hospitalized. Two were also hospitalized over the first week.
The numbers are right on par with past years, except for the 2009 flu season when 200 people had already been hospitalized at this time.
