Flu season peaking early

Posted:

The flu season is hitting an early peak throughout much of Wyoming.

While some Southern Wyoming counties are completely out of flu vaccine, Sheridan County says there are some local pharmacies and other companies with vaccine available.

Health officials claim the state's flu season usually peaks in February or March, but this year the health department needed to move up the flu clinics to an earlier date.

"Our flu season this year started actually in early September and then we've seen increased numbers early here in December and now into January," said Toby Granger with Sheridan County Public Health.

State health officials say this is Wyoming's worst flu season in three years, but no one has died from the flu this season.
