Hospitalizations for flu on the rise in Pueblo County

Posted: Updated:
PUEBLO -

On Tuesday, Pueblo County had reached nine hospitalizations for the flu this season. 

The Pueblo City-County Health Department says one of these cases has affected someone between 5 and 18 years old. 

The other eight cases involve people over the age of 65. 

Colorado isn't even halfway through flu season yet. 

Zachery Van Ooyen with the Pueblo City-County Health Department said, "Typical flu season starts September 1 and goes until June 30, but we do tend to see our peak here in Colorado in January or February." 

The health department wants to remind people to get a flu shot and of course, wash your hands, use hand sanitizer, and stay home if you're not feeling well.
