After a slow start, the number of flu cases in the Pittsburgh area has started to rise.

The flu may have passed you by this holiday season, but if you haven't had a flu shot yet, you are at risk.

According to the Allegheny County Health Department, as of Dec. 4, there were 30 confirmed cases of the flu in Allegheny County, with the actual number predicted to be three to four times higher, the Pittsburgh Post Gazette reported
