State health officials in Iowa have discovered a new strain of the flu virus they are calling “A/H3N2″. The variation was discovered in a couple school-aged children and has popped up in a few other places around the country.

Symptoms for this strain are similar to that of the regular flu virus, and health officials suggest there appears to be nothing out of the ordinary about this strain. Surveillance will be continued, however, to monitor the new bug.

Health officials recommend the seasonal flu vaccine, ample rest, a healthy diet, and regular exercise to help in preventing getting sick this season.
