MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Peak flu activity usually doesn’t hit Wisconsin residents until February, but state health officials are urging people to get their shots.

Flu season usually runs from late October until May. State health officers say the flu season is already here and getting vaccinated is the most effective way to avoid getting sick.

Most health care providers are already offering the shots.

Getting vaccinated is especially important for people over 50 and those with health conditions which might weaken their ability to fight the symptoms.
