It’s Not Too Late For The Flu Shot

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.
