Flu "Shoot-Outs" Planned for Southwest Utah



The Southwest Utah Public Health Department will be holding its annual Flu Shoot-Outs for the five-county district starting in September.

It is currently recommended that everyone over six months of age get immunized; although young children, pregnant women, people over 65 years of age, and anyone with chronic health problems are especially encouraged to do so. Flu activity varies each year, often starting in the fall and peaking in February. Getting vaccinated is the first and most important step in protecting against this serious disease.
