GRANT COUNTY, Wash. - Grant County Health District is issuing an alert to the public that influenza season has arrived.

GCHD urges all residents 6 months and older to get their flu shot as soon as possible. Flu activity typically increases in the winter months when people spend more time indoors around each other. People who haven’t been vaccinated against the flu still have time to get the vaccine before the season reaches its peak.
