Seasonal flu not seen in Wausau area yet

WESTON (WAOW)-- Mid-February and still no sign of the seasonal flu.  Health leaders in the area say we're typically into the flu season at this point.  It usually begins in February and last through March, but can last longer.  Even though things seem to be delayed, if you've been vaccinated that should still protect you.

"It should be okay, because it should last you several months, for 4-6 months.  So, people should be okay," said Dr. Ellen Schumann, Medical Director of Women & Family Services at Saint Clare's Hospital.

If you haven't gotten the vaccine there's still time.  Click on the link to find flu clinics in your area.
