OK (KSWO)- The Oklahoma Department of Health says 65 people were admitted to hospitals this week with the flu. That brings the total number since September to 262.

Stephens County is reporting the most cases in Southwest Oklahoma with five, followed by four in Comanche County and three in Jackson.

Fortunately, there were no flu deaths reported within the last week, but six people across the state have died since the season started. It typically runs from October to May so you still have plenty of time to get a flu shot to avoid getting sick.
