Did You Get Your Flu Shot? It's Not Too Late.

The Minnesota Department of Health reports flu is widespread in Minnesota. It is not too late to get a flu shot this season! Getting your flu shot also helps others – like infants who are too young and others who can’t be vaccinated for medical reasons – because it reduces the number of people spreading flu.

While the vaccine won’t prevent all the flu this year, the flu shot can still provide protection and might prevent going to the hospital, or death. Stay healthy by getting a flu shot, staying home when you are sick, covering your cough and frequently washing your hands.
