CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has reported that flu activity in Wyoming has been mostly dormant this flu season.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1O69JAy ) that Wyoming has been found to have only "sporadic" levels of flu activity. Not one city or region in the state has reported widespread infection.

The flu appears to have less of an impact on Wyoming residents this year than in 2014, when 29 residents died from complications related to influenza. No deaths have been reported since this year's flu season began in October.

Flu activity could still peak in January or February.

Health officials are calling on residents to get a flu shot if they haven't yet received one.
