First Kansas Flu Cases

KSAL StaffFebruary 5, 2016

Kansas health officials have confirmed the first flu cases in the state for the current flu season.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment says the four cases were reported by a south central Kansas hospital.

Health department secretary Susan Mosier reminds Kansas residents it’s not too late to get a flu vaccine. The vaccines are recommended for nearly everyone 6 months or older.

The department says this season’s flu vaccine appears to be a good match to the circulating influenza viruses.

Flu or pneumonia contributed to or was the direct cause of 1,153 deaths in Kansas during the 2014-2015 flu season. Influenza and pneumonia were the eighth leading cause of death in Kansas in 2014.
