• FLU RESOURCE GUIDE: What you need to know about the flu season

    Updated:

    The number of flu deaths in North Carolina and South Carolina has been on the rise since the start of the season in October.

    This year's flu season got off to an early start, and it's been driven by a nasty type of flu that tends to put more people in the hospital and cause more deaths than other common flu bugs.

    Channel 9 has put together this resource guide so you can find information on the flu, where you can get a vaccine and where outbreaks are happening.
