First Case of Flu in Fayette County

Dec 3, 2012

LEXINGTON, Ky. - Just in time for National Influenza Vaccination Week comes word of the first flu case in our area.  Public health nurse manager at the Fayette County health department, Lois Davis, says if you’ve been putting it off- it’s time to get that flu shot.

“We had 143 confirmed cases last year.  Now usually on most years the flu season peaks in January or February, so um this a little later than usual to have our first confirmed case, but maybe that means more people are getting their flu shots,” Davis says.

LEXINGTON, Ky. - The Fayette County Health Department is announcing the results of its annual Free Flu Friday event.  According to a news release 1,669 shots were distributed to members of the Lexington community.
