Flu cases tapering off in Dallas County

Posted: Updated:
DALLAS -

The number of flu cases in Dallas County appears to be tapering off, according to Dallas County Health Director Zach Thompson.

Thompson delivered that information Tuesday morning in front of county commissioners. The health director said the number of people coming into the health department for flu shots seems to have leveled off.

"We peaked early, we continue to peak, this is our normal period end of January as we go into the first of February. So, we are right on target, although we are seeing a decrease, I just don't want to relax in terms of that we're still encouraging Dallas county residents to get flu shots, " Thompson said.

Last week, 600 doses of the flu vaccine was delivered by the county to Children's Medical Center.

Thompson said Children's still has plenty of that vaccine on hand, another good sign the spread of the virus has slowed.
