An elderly, unvaccinated man passed away over Thanksgiving weekend in Yellowstone County from influenza according to Riverstone Health.

The CDC is recommending everyone get a flu shot since it is still early in the flu season.

As of November 30, 474 cases of the flu have been officially reported and one death.

Flu vaccinations are available through the Riverstone Health Clinic and other medical offices and numerous pharmacies in every Montana community.
