As Georgia's flu rates continue to be the highest in the country, health officials in the southern part of the state are warning residents to be extra careful.

Southwest Health District officials say this year is shaping up to have a more active flu virus than usual.

They say it's not too late for people to get vaccinated against the virus, and say those over the age of 50 and under the age of 18 are at the highest risk.

Doctors say the flu season generally peaks between January and February, but already they've seen over 99 cases that tested positive for the virus in the area.
