Flu Season In Full Swing In Colorado

DENVER (CBS4) – The flu season is well under way in Colorado.

Isabella Castro, 7, is recovering at the Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children. Just days before she was scheduled to get a flu shot she showed signs of influenza B. She was hospitalized Sunday with a high fever, vomiting and dehydration.

“It started early this year. Often we’re seeing more flu in January and February. We actually have been seeing some since October,” Dr. Christine Darr said.

Darr says it is still not too late to vaccinate against the flu.
