This year's Flu outbreak coming on strong


ANN ARBOR (WKZO) -- Officials with the University of Michigan Health System say there are more than a dozen patients on life support suffering from the flu.

Doctors in Northern Indiana are reporting the death of several young adults from the flu, in both cases it’s been H1N1 strain commonly called the Swine Flu.

Doctor Richard Van Enk, with Bronson Healthcare, says it's never too late or too soon to get a flu shot, especially this year, but the sooner the better.

Doctor Van Enk notes that it really doesn't matter where you get your flu vaccine, as only a handful of companies make it, and whatever version you're getting is likely to be effective.

Experts say that even those who think they won't get the flu are doing some good when they get the vaccine because they're still protecting other from catching it.
