This year's brutal flu season is not easing its grip yet: hospitalizations are up, doctors visits have reached 2009 levels and at least 63 children have died. Judy Woodruff asks Dr. Anne Schuchat, acting director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, why it’s so bad, who is most vulnerable and what you should do even if you’re healthy.
