(KSL News) -- As we reported last week, the flu in Utah appears to have peaked and may be going the other way.
750 new laboratory confirmed cases have been added to the State's tally over the past week with no new deaths.
While still higher than the entire flu season last year, the overall number is down from the week before. And fewer people are going to clinics or hospitals with influenza like illnesses.
State Health officials say the stats are a good sign, but they still want residents to take precautions to prevent the spread of illness.
Also, flu vaccine priorities are still in force. Flu shots are available ONLY to high risk people.
