The flu bug is hitting North Carolina hard

Its no surprise with the change in the temperatures that we see a lot of people with the flu, but health officials say this year the bug is hitting North Carolina especially hard.

Officials with the New Hanover County Health Department say there are more people with the flu so far this year as there was all of last year. Health officials are urging everyone to get the flu vaccine to stop the spread of the virus. Flu shots cost about 15-dollars and you can get them at your local health department.
