FLU SEASON IS HERE AND SO FAR IT IS HITTING NEBRASKA HARD. — Flu season is here and so far it is hitting Nebraska hard.

Thousands of people across the state have already had the flu this season and that number keeps growing. According to the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services latest flu update, there have been nearly 400 new cases in the past few weeks. Doctors say it is not too late to get the flu vaccine.

Beginning Monday, Nebraska Medicine will be offering walk-in flu clinics. You do not need an appointment to be seen at any of the designated flu clinics.
