There’s still a good supply of flu shots in the area. Lynn Fisher with Washington County Public Health, says with the number of flu cases in the state gradually increasing, it’s not a bad idea to get one. She says if you do have symptoms of the flu, like a fever, body aches and a cough, get plenty of rest and fluids. She explains the flu doesn’t result in hospitalization for most, but it is more common for those under 5 years old and over 65 years old.
