The state says there are now two, confirmed cases of influenza in the Bluegrass.

The Kentucky Department for Public Health says the positive cases were from Henderson and Jefferson Counties.

The state reports the cases to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as part of Kentucky's flu surveillance efforts.

The flu season usually begins in October or November.

Health experts encourage Kentuckians to get a flu vaccine as soon as their health provider has it in stock.

That's because it takes about two weeks for immunity to develop and offer protection against flu.

Doctors recommend the flu vaccine for anyone who is more than six-months old.
