Flu season officially underway
By Sharon Gaeta
Flu season is officially in full swing, but experts say it's not too late to get vaccinated. They have not seen many cases of influenza in this region yet this year, but flu activity is on the rise across the nation. The virus is already widespread in ten states, and numerous deaths have been reported. That's why doctors at Geisinger Health System recommend getting vaccinated. They say getting vaccinated gives you a 70 percent chance of preventing the flu.
