Fayette County Health Department Offering Free Flu Shots

The Center for Disease Control said last year’s flu season was the worst in decades. Around 80,000 people died from the flu, or complications from the flu, in 2017. The Fayette County Health Department is one of many hosting a free flu shot clinic.The clinic will be Thursday, Oct. 11 from 12-6 p.m. at the health department’s main building at 650 Newtown Pike.”Lexington had 744 confirmed flu cases last year, but that represents a small fraction since most flu cases aren’t lab-confirmed,” LFCHD spokesman Kevin Hall said. “An annual flu shot is the best way to fight the flu each fall and winter.”
