Flu season underway
Influenza season is just getting underway in Minnesota, so it’s not too late to get vaccinated against what can be a serious disease, say state health officials. Nearly everyone should get vaccinated and there are more options for doing so than ever before. An ideal time to get vaccinated is during Minnesota’s annual Ban the Bug campaign, which runs now until Dec. 8.
Local public health agencies, nonprofit groups and health care organizations in many Minnesota communities will sponsor influenza vaccination clinics during Ban the Bug week as well as throughout the month of December and beyond.
