Lexington Sees 12th Death From Flu

The Lexington-Fayette County Health Department is helping people fight the flu for free.

There have been 513 confirmed flu cases in Lexington this season, including 11 deaths.

As the country struggles through one of the worst flu seasons in a decade, the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department is offering free flu shots as there have already been almost 5,300 flu cases across the Commonwealth, including 102 deaths. They said the more people who get vaccinated, the more people will be protected from flu, including older people, children, pregnant women and people with certain long-term health conditions who are more vulnerable to serious flu complications.

If you're starting to feel tired or you develop a high fever, check in with your doctor.

"Stay at home if you're sick, cover your cough if you sneeze, get your flu shot and be very mindful of washing your hands regularly", Barasch said.

The Fayette County Health Department is offering free flu shots Tuesday from 4 to 6:30 p.m.in their public health clinic.
