The New Mexico Department of Health reports widespread flu activity across New Mexico March 2, and expects heightened activity for weeks to come. NMDOH encourages residents who haven’t gotten the annual flu shot to do so as soon as possible as this year’s influenza vaccine is proving effective in reducing a person’s risk of having to visit the doctor’s office for influenza by nearly half.

“We are only at the halfway point of the 2016-2017 flu season, so anyone’s chances of getting the flu are far from over,” said Lynn Gallagher, Department of Health Cabinet Secretary. “Flu can infect anyone - including healthy people - sometimes more than once per flu season. All of...
