Flu Could Be Coming to a School Near You

It appears the flu season is gaining momentum in Minnesota. 

Kari Springer, Disease Prevention Coordinator for the Crow Wing County Health Department, says 32 schools have experienced outbreaks so far. 
She says no outbreaks have been reported in local schools yet, but that is expected to change soon. 

Springer tells KLKS News, they fear a severe outbreak because fewer people have been vaccinated this season.  She says both type A and B  flu have been reported.

Springer says they have plenty of vaccine and there is still time to get a flu shot.  It takes about two weeks to take full effect.
