North Carolina is about to hit the peak of it's flu season and health experts say it's still not too late to vaccinated. The peak usually begins now and runs through March. Jo Morgan, health education director for the Pitt County Health Department, says this year's season is very similar to last year's season in the number of confirmed flu cases. Since October more than 20 confirmed flu cases have been reported, but Morgan says the low number of cases can be misleading. That's because many doctors don't keep track of the numbers.
Morgan says flu shots are still available in Pitt County. Getting vaccinated now will cover you through the month of April. For more on this year's flu season click on the following link.
