Gallatin Co. Confirms Montana's First Cases of Influenza

BOZEMAN -

Montana's first two confirmed cases of influenza have been reported in Gallatin County.

The Gallatin City-County Health Department said on Tuesday that both cases of the flu had been confirmed in adolescent male residents of Gallatin County.

"Influenza has arrived," Matt Kelley, who is the Health Officer with the Gallatin City-County Health Department, said. "Now is the time for everyone to get their flu shots, not only for themselves but also to protect neighbors, co-workers, friends, and family members who are most vulnerable."

National, state, tribal and local public health authorities strongly recommend influenza vaccination for everyone older than six months to fend off viruses that can lead to serious health problems. Annual vaccination is the safest and most effective method to prevent influenza infections, according to the Gallatin City-County Health Department.

The Gallatin City-County Health Department provides flu shots during weekly walk-in clinics and by appointment at (406) 582-3100. The next walk-in clinic will be held at Gallatin City-County Health Department on Tuesday, November 12 from 8:30 am through 11:30 a.m. Individuals can also make appointments by calling the Health Department at (406) 582-3100.
