CARSON CITY, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- According to recent reports from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), this year’s flu season began early and activity continues to be increasing nationally.

The Nevada State Health Division reports 22 confirmed cases of influenza since the season began. The number of confirmed cases in Nevada is up 57% from only two weeks ago, and numbers continue to increase.

The CDC recommends that everyone six months of age and older get a seasonal flu vaccine. If you haven’t had your flu shot this year, the CDC recommends that you get vaccinated right away. It can take up to two weeks for the vaccine to become effective and getting vaccinated is your best protection.

Okay News 4, Regarding your report tonight on the flu epidemic, let's try providing some useful information- like - where the heck are we supposed to get a flu shot? I was in CVS pharmacy today, with an ad playing over the intercom, "You're in the store, so get your flu shot today." Then I get up to the pharmacy counter and they are out. Turns out, they were out three days ago. Then I went to my Dr.'s office at Renown. He's out on leave and they are out of shots. Then I called all the pharmacy's- they are out. So a nice lady told me to call the Health Admin here in Reno. After being transferred 4 times...I got this number. Okay- so try calling this number they give you to set up an appointment for an immunization: 775-328-2402. The number doesn't even connect. So here's a job for you News 4- how about telling all of us in Reno where we can go to get a flu shot??????? Thanks for your help!
