Flu season is underway, but so far no officially diagnosed cases have been reported in Yuma County. That information coming from Kathy Ward, Nursing Supervisor for the Yuma County Public Health Services District.
Ward says while there have been no “official” cases yet, it’s impossible to predict how bad the flu season is going to be until it hits. Ward says despite what residents might've heard, it's not possible to get the flu from the shot.
She adds that if someone is coming down with it, they should see the doctor to prevent complications.
