Maryland has its first cases of the flu this season.

The department of health says 3 adults in the Baltimore area have been diagnosed.

One of them was treated at a hospital and later released.

This isn't out of the norm because flu season typically begins as early as October.

Health officials urge everyone to get a shot because flu is expected to be worst this year
