NM Flu Cases On The Rise

Health officials say the flu is spiking in New Mexico, with at least 88 people hospitalized across the state. Department of Health officials say that's a dramatic increase from this time last year. 

The Albuquerque Journal reports that health officials say there's plenty of vaccine available.

High-risk groups include older people, young children, pregnant women and people with chronic conditions, such as asthma, diabetes, or heart disease.
