Iowa Flu Cases Identified

State health officials say three types of flu have been identified in Iowa. State medical director, Patricia Quinlisk, says the types of flu are familiar ones.


Quinlisk says the number of flu cases in Iowa is low right now and it’s a good time to take precautions against it.


Many people got the H-one-N-one flu in the 2009 outbreak, but Quinlisk says that was long enough ago that you likely don’t have any protection remaining.
