CONCORD, N.H. (AP) – New Hampshire’s Department of Health and Human Service says flu cases are peaking in the state, and are spreading across all demographic groups.

Dr. Jose Montero, director of public health, says it’s not too late to get a vaccine.

Risk groups include every child younger than 5, every adult older than 65, health care workers and people with chronic diseases.

Montero says this year’s vaccine is matching strains health care workers are seeing in the community.
