Flu season arrives early in Vermont

Posted: Updated:

It's early. But it's here. There are now confirmed cases of flu in Vermont.

Experts don't know why flu season is starting early this year, but it's true across the country. The Vermont Health Department is using the news to remind everyone to get a flu shot.

The vaccine is supposed to be a good match for this year's strain, but it takes two weeks after getting the shot for the vaccine to take full effect.
