The Georgia Department of Health has a warning as we find ourselves in flu season.

In the past two months there have been nearly 200 flu cases in southwest Georgia.

Ninety seven percent of the cases are in elementary school-aged children. Officials are urging parents to get their children vaccinated to help cut back on the number of flu cases.

Reports show Seminole, Miller, and Decatur Counties with the highest concentration of cases.
