SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - The New Mexico Department of Health is reporting the first lab-confirmed cases of influenza for this season.

Health officials say there are three reported cases - all involving women from Bernalillo County.

Two of the women - ages 68 and 77 - were hospitalized for treatment and are now out of the hospital.

The other woman with the flu is 54 years old.

The first flu case last season in New Mexico was reported last September.

Each year, flu vaccine arrives in waves and health officials say many providers and pharmacies in the state have it in stock now.
