Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - If there's such thing as a regular flu season, this one is starting out like that. Sanford Health is holding three clinics over the next week.

Health official have only tested about 100 possible flu cases, way down from about 14-hundred at this time last year. Last year's strain of H1N1 will be included in the seasonal flu shot, so you only need 1-shot.

"The thing with influenza is that it's predictably unpredictable. So you can never really forecast the severity of the season. You can never really forecast reliably when it's going to start, generally it peaks February to March, but there's been other years that we've had it start earlier."”

There's a flu clinic tonight in the lobby of the Broadway Sanford Health until 8:00 pm, then tomorrow from 9 to 6. It costs 34 dollars and most insurances cover that cost.
