Flu Season Not Here Yet
Laramie, Wy – So, far in Wyoming there has only been one reported case of the flu. That's the word of Department of Health epidemiologist, Nicole Lindsey. She says they still do not have any indication of when the flu season will begin in earnest in Wyoming because influenza is so unpredictable; sometimes starting early in the winter and other times not until February.
The immunization program manager at the Department of Health says there are 17 states with reported cases of influenza so far. He says Wyoming will likely get half as many doses of the flu vaccine as normal, but he says that should be enough to vaccinate all high risk people in the state.
