The State Health Commissioner is declaring the infection of the Flu "Prevalent" in New York State.

That means if healthcare workers have not gotten a flu shot this year they need to start wearing masks around patients.

Health officials admit that this year's vaccine may not protect against one of the year's flu strains.
