Alberta Health Services has reported about 3,800 lab confirmed cases of Influenza A across the province.

The Calgary Zone, which includes High River and Okotoks, makes up about 1,800 of that number.

Edmonton follows behind with about 650 cases.

Provincially, over a million flu vaccines have been administered with about half a million of those vaccines being used in the Calgary Zone.

This is almost on par with the 2017/2018 flu season's total of 1,229,350 vaccines administered.

AHS says so far this flu season 15 Albertans, six from the Calgary Zone, have died due to lab confirmed Influenza.

This is far behind 2017/2018, which saw a total of 92 flu related deaths in the Province.
