Flu Season Not Slowing Down

The flu season this year has already been a deadly one for fourteen people in our state, three of them have died just this past week. And it's the reason local doctors are pushing the importance of getting a flu shot.

Physicians in Greenville say they've seen more patients this flu season compared to last year. Doctors warn that at the first sign of symptoms it's important to get checked out so they can prescribe anti-viral medication.

Doctors say the main symptoms for flu are a fever, body aches, nausea, and possibly other cold symptoms.

State health officials say in typical years, flu activity will last through the month of March into April.
