CENTRAL ILLINOIS — It’s the heart of flu season and, at least one pharmacy says, sales reflect that.

Meijer says its stores have sold 30% more cold and flu medicines recently compared to this time last year.

Champaign’s manager says sales spiked right after Christmas. He also says flu shots are picking up after a slow start.

It’s not too late to get one. Meijer is just one location offering the service.
