Flu spreading in Arizona

 

It’s near the end of the flu season but flu has been spreading rapidly in Arizona in recent weeks.

 

Nearly one-third of the 1159 confirmed flu cases in the state were reported during the week of March 11-17. Flu has been reported in all but one of Arizona’s counties—La Paz County. The state Department of Health Services says flu is now “widespread.”

 

Flu peaked late this year, says DHS Director Will Humble, who says that the strains circulating in the state and the nation are the ones that the vaccine targets.

 

Flu vaccines are still available, and DHS has a page where you can get information about flu symptoms and risks. Most health insurance policies cover the shot, including Medicare and Medicaid (AHCCCS). In addition, many clinics offer the shot for as low as $20.

 

Last year, five children in Arizona died from flu.
