North Dakota’s flu season is starting to gain a little traction. The state health department has confirmed 22 cases of influenza to date in seven different counties -- including Grand Forks. Two people have been hospitalized due to the illness. Health officials remind North Dakotans to get a flu shot. The department confirmed one-thousand-487 cases of influenza last flu season but over 38-hundred cases during the 2007-2008 reporting period.
