CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire health officials say the influenza virus is already starting to circulate and cause illness in the state, so they recommend that residents 6 months and older get a flu shot.

State Epidemiologist Benjamin Chan says the flu season usually lasts from September through May. He said several cases of the influenza virus infection have already been identified in the state.

He said last year, there were 47 influenza-related deaths, including two pediatric deaths, identified in New Hampshire.
