2014 Flu Season

6 Flu-Related Deaths Reported in Kentucky

Dec 31, 2014

The Kentucky Department of Public Health say five adults and one child have died as the result of flu this season.

The Fayette County Health Department is urging people to stop putting off getting a flu shot.  This week the  Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that Kentucky's flu activity level increased from "regional" to "widespread," the highest level of flu activity. Widespread activity indicates increased flu-like activity or flu outbreaks in at least half of the regions in the state.

The Fayette County Health Department says the flu has officially arrived, but there is still plenty of time to get that flu shot before the most active season gets here.
