(KPRC)  The number of flu cases is growing and health experts are urging everyone to take precautions.

Currently, doctors report seeing an increase in patients between 18 and 49 years of age with flu-like symptoms.

The Centers for Disease Control says H1N1 is the dominant strain circulating.

The strain is sickening younger and middle-aged people, and doctors say the reason could be because a lot of young adults are not getting vaccinated.
