Two cases of flu in Kentucky

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Two cases of the flu have turned up in Kentucky.  Health officials say the cases were confirmed in Henderson and Jefferson counties.

Flu vaccines take several weeks before a person develops immunity to the flu, so officials are encouraging people to get their vaccines now.

Anyone over six months old is encouraged to get vaccinated.

Other tips -- wash your hands frequently, cover your mouth when coughing or sneezing, and stay home when you're sick.
