Happy new year, everyone! With the new year comes this week's flu report, which shows an uptick in the amount of flu-like illness that we're seeing in the state. If this flu season is like most others, we're going to see these numbers continue to rise well into February and March. What does that mean to you? Well, if you haven't gotten your flu shot yet, there is still time to protect yourself and your family from getting sick with the flu. Call your health care provider to make a vaccination appointment, or find a local flu clinic on this searchable database.
