Flu season approaching

Some medical experts are saying there could be an early start to the flu season this year. Cases of influenza are already being reported in California.

In Madison, nurse-epidemiologist Ellen Smith of St. Mary’s says it’s difficult to predict. Typically, the influenza season can  start as early as October, and peaks in January and February. Smith says cases can go as late as May.

Smith says supplies of vaccine should be plentiful.
