Influenza cases in Wisconsin this season are running significantly higher than at this time last year, and state health officials are encouraging residents to get their flu shots in the run-up to National Influenza Vaccination Week.

Health officials reported 113 laboratory-confirmed flu cases so far this season, up from seven cases at this time last year. At this point last year, zero people had been hospitalized for the flu as compared to 12 this year. Officials noted vaccinations are especially important for children and the elderly, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said everyone older than six months should get vaccinated.
