It's mid March and Kansas is just now hitting peak Influenza season.

Peak season is typically December and January, according to doctors at Wesley Medical Center, this year, we're about three months behind.

Even though the sickness is making a late debut, symptoms are the same.

Symptoms include: headache, fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat, and fatigue.

Once you have the sickness, doctors say there's not really anything they can do to fight it off. That's why, they say, it's better to get your flu shot and be prepared.

Wesley Medical Center is offering flu shots through the beginning of May.
