State health officials say if you have not had a flu shot, now's the time to get one.

Three lab-confirmed positive influenza cultures have been reported to the Kentucky Department for Public Health, indicating the presence of flu in the state. With more flu vaccine available this year than ever before, state health officials urge Kentuckians to get a flu shot to help protect their families from illness over the holidays.

The cases involve two Fayette County residents and one Woodford County resident. Kentuckys flu activity is currently classified as sporadic, which is the lowest of flu activity.

The flu season can begin as early as October and last through April. Most other states are also reporting sporadic activity.
