MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The City of Milwaukee Health Department reports a rise in flu-related hospitalizations.
So far, more than 100 people have been hospitalized in Milwaukee this flu season.
Mayor Tom Barrett is urging everyone over 6 months of age to get a flu shot if they haven't already.
Milwaukee Health Commissioner Bevan K. Baker says the city is seeing an increase in young and middle-aged adults who are being hospitalized with complications from seasonal flu.
Baker says the best way for people to protect themselves and their families is to get the flu vaccine.
