It is just a few weeks away.
Each year, between 5 to 20% of people in the United States get the flu.
Darlene Armacost with the Health Department said flu season is just a few weeks away.
"Generally, we think the flu season starting October 1st and running through the middle of May but it is always possible that we see the flu virus circulating earlier than that," Armacost said.
She said there are ways to prevent getting this virus.
"Remember to always cover your cough and your sneeze, wash your hands with soap and water and if that's not available, use a hand sanitizer, avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth because we touch so many objects throughout the day and that is a good way to make ourselves sick," Armacost said.
Flu symptoms include body aches, fever, chills, headache and fatigue.
The best thing to do to avoid getting the flu is get a flu shot each year. This year, two clinics are being offered on Saturday, October 13th and Tuesday, October 16th. They are free to children under 18 years old and an appointment is necessary.
