Three Flu Cases Reported in Fayette County

For the second time in two days, on Friday, health officials reported some new flu cases in Lexington.

These two new patients bring the statewide total to four.

The first popped up in Adair County earlier this month. The other three are here in Fayette County.

Flu season typically doesn't peak until February, so doctors say you should still get the flu shot if you haven't done so.

Influenza kills 36,000 people every year. 90% percent of the deaths occur in elderly patients.
