A particularly virulent flu season appears to have arrived early this year, and those who are at high risk of catching the disease who have not yet received a flu vaccine are encouraged to do so by health and school officials from San Joaquin County, Lodi and Galt. Local supplies of the vaccine are still available although both of the national manufacturers are out.

An average of about 36,000 people die from the flu every year in the United States. The Centers for Disease Control is expecting more this year due to a particularly pestilent strain. Reports of the flu came as early as September in the Western states this year said Kathy Tully, coordinator for immunization of the San Joaquin County Public Health Services.
