From January 29 to February 10, nearly 4,000 flu vaccines have been administered to Louisianians at no cost to the public.

State officials said there have been 13 flu-related deaths in the 2017-2018 flu season.

Kreidler says they are starting to see a new wave of people that have contracted strain B of the flu. The strains that are circulation have shifted, so you could get a different strain and end up sick twice in one season.

"We're still having people that are being diagnosed with flu, and we're expecting a longer than normal influenza season", Kreidler said.

Symptoms of the flu can include a sudden onset of fever, dry cough, headache, muscle aches, tiredness, sore throat and nasal congestion or stuffiness, according to DHEC.

"I encourage anyone who has not received the flu shot to get one", said Brandie Combs, regional director.

The Department of Health is hosting a special Flu Shot Friday event at clinics across the state where patients can receive free vaccines while supplies last.
