Health officials say flu widespread in Ky.

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Health officials say the flu level in Kentucky has increased to widespread, and they are recommending vaccinations for everyone except infants younger than 6 months old.

The Department for Public Health said in a statement on Wednesday that widespread flu activity means there are outbreaks in at least half of the regions in the state.

Health Commissioner Stephanie Mayfield says the agency is "strongly urging" anyone who hasn't gotten vaccinated to do so, especially if they are at risk for complications.
