So far this winter, there have been 93 flu-related deaths in England, Sky said, quoting Public Health England.
There has been particular concern about the H3N2 strain, commonly referred to as "Australian flu", which has been linked to a number of deaths in Ireland, according to Sky.
Australia was hit hard by a flu bug that's notorious for causing severe illness, and flu viruses spread around the world.
Preliminary estimates suggested the vaccine barely worked there, targeting 10 percent struck by the strain.
