State health officials are urging Minnesotans to roll up their sleeves and get their flu shot during the annual “Ban the Bug” campaign.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Department of Health, the Minnesota Coalition for Adult Immunization and other organizations are sponsoring the campaign Dec. 5-11.
Minnesotans will have opportunities during that week to catch up on their influenza vaccination.
Health officials say it’s not too late to get a flu shot and there is plenty of flu vaccine available.
Flu season in Minnesota typically peaks between January and April, so getting a flu shot now can protect you for months.
