State health officials say two of the first three confirmed flu cases in Oklahoma are in Tulsa County.

In a news release, the Oklahoma State Department of Health says all three cases are Influenza A H3.  One of the two Tulsa cases has been hospitalized.

The third confirmed case is in Oklahoma County.

The OSDH recommends all Oklahomans six months and older get an influenza immunization if they have not already done so.

“If you haven’t done so already, now is the time to get your flu shot before influenza begins to spread more widely,” said Laurence Burnsed, MPH, OSDH epidemiologist. 

“Persons who have the flu can spread it to others even before they feel sick. The flu vaccine provides the best protection for the individual who receives it and reduces the chance of spreading the flu to persons who have not been vaccinated, including babies too young to receive a vaccination.”
