The flu is making an early debut in Sacramento County this 2013-2014 flu season.

Already, state Public Health Director Ron Chapman has declared the flu widespread across California, and there have been five deaths locally in our county.

The H1N1 virus, which is related to the pandemic H1N1 of 2009, is the predominant strain so far this year, and is included in the flu shot that is still available.

Catch up on a live chat on the flu and flu shots with Sacramento County’s immunization program coordinator, Kate McAuley.
