Hospital visitor restrictions

Posted:

The early flu season continuing - St. Luke's Hospital and Mercy Medical Center in Cedar Rapids now restricting visitation access.

Anyone 18 and younger is asked to avoid visiting loved ones.

Officials say it's because younger people are statistically more likely to carry influenza.

As far as vaccinations go - there's still little we can tell you about where to specifically get one.

The CDC ends doses to the Iowa Department of Public Health.

From there they go to healthcare centers, pregnant women and healthcare workers get top priority.
