Flu Season Hits Kids Hard

More than 12,710 people in Arizona have been diagnosed with the flu so far this year. The number of cases in all but one week has been higher than the average for the past five years. The infections have been higher than normal among children, according to Arizona Department of Health Services data.

Arizona’s flu season typically starts in October and runs into June, with most cases occurring January through March. 

Health officials recommend everyone 6 months and older get the vaccine, even this late in the season, but note that it takes about two weeks to start working. Individuals at high risk for complications from the flu, including those with asthma, diabetes or heart disease, should see a doctor if infected, and antiviral drugs may be prescribed.
