"The influenza season in PEI began in late December 2014 although there were a few sporadic cases confirmed prior to that date.  Influenza A predominated the season accounting for 62% of all lab-confirmed cases in PEI, with most of these being A/H3.  The Flu A activity peaked in early February, while the Flu B activity peaked at the end of March.  The circulation of both strains within one influenza season extended the length of the season. Flu activity ended in May, but sporadic cases of influenza can occur at anytime during the year. Lab-confirmed cases are just an indicator of flu activity.  The majority of influenza cases do not seek health care and are not tested". - PEI Influenza Summary 2014-2015 Season
