Jefferson County, which ADPH classified as a distinct district, has reported 20 deaths under investigation. The very young and the elderly are particularly at risk for the severe symptoms that the flu can cause.

More students were vaccinated this year, thanks to $12,000 allocated from the Student Affairs' Student Impact Fund. "It's kind of one of those things you never expect for the flu to be this huge of a deal, until it happens to somebody that you know".

Andrew Yawn and Kym Klass contributed to this report.

How does the flu spread?
