A doctor's office is shown in an undated image

Dr. Scheer. "But in flu season, if you haven't washed your hands that can really increase the risk of getting the flu".

While many are getting ready for the holidays, the Nevada Health District and area doctors are on high alert as the flu season kicks off. The flu shot is recommended for everyone over six months of age, but is especially important for people with a weakened immune system, pregnant women, young children, the elderly, and anyone who takes care of people in these groups.

Last year, there were 713 confirmed flu cases in Clark County, according to the health district, resulting in 13 deaths and 476 hospitalizations.

The department says this is a reminder that the flu season is here and to go get the flu vaccine as soon as possible.

For the most recent reporting period, the percentage of hospital emergency room visits for influenza-like illnesses was at a warning level, even though peak flu season is normally in January and February.

About 100 of the 2016-2017 flu-related deaths occurred in children, the CDC reports.

The health district also recommends practicing good health habits to avoid the flu, including covering your cough, washing your hands, avoiding contact with people that are sick, and staying home if you are ill.

The Porcupine Health Unit encourages everyone to receive the influenza vaccine and will be offering free community influenza clinics throughout the month of November.
