St. Alphonsus Medical Center in Boise has seen a spike in Flu cases in the month of January. And by spike, I'm talking about a 300 percent increase from this time last year. Fortunately, it's not too late to get this year's Flu Shot but if you can't come in get the shot make sure to wash your hands and keep sanitizer around the house. It's all about keeping it clean whenever you can.

Idaho has seen over 25 deaths due to Flu in 2016.
