First Case Of Flu Reported In Ada County
It's that time of the year again, the beginning of the flu season.

Central District Health reported the first positive test result of the year Tuesday afternoon. They say an Ada County boy fell ill this week and is expected to make a full recovery.

This first positive test ironically comes amidst National Influenza Vaccination Week. All this week CDH will offer walk in flu shot clinics Thursday the 30Th and Friday the 1st of December from 8:00 a.m to 2:00 p.m. They said appointments can be made but are not needed.

Central District Health says the flu season in the Gem State usually peaked mid-February, so getting a flu shot now will protect you for the rest of the flu season.
