State health officials say flu off to early start

-A A +A

SANTA FE (AP) — State officials say the influenza season is off to an early start and are warning that it may be more severe than in recent years.
The New Mexico Department of Health says flu is circulating throughout the state. Health officials say anyone six months of age and older, particularly pregnant women and those with underlying health conditions, should get vaccinated.
The department says many of the influenza cases seen so far are a more severe type that has led to higher number of hospitalizations and deaths in previous flu seasons than other types.
Symptoms can include a fever, body aches, tiredness and cough.
The Health Department doesn’t track every case of flu in New Mexico. However, it does track influenza-like illness at several locations statewide to estimate the amount of flu activity.
