Time For A Flu Shot

The Centers for Disease Control on Thursday kicked off their flu vaccination campaign in Washington, beginning to urge people to get their flu shots.The Kentucky Department of Health is also urging people to get their flu shots, as well, because there have already been 154 lab-confirmed cases of the flu in the commonwealth since Aug. 4.The CDC strongly encourages children between six months and five years old, women who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant, people age 50 and over, people struggling with obesity, people with chronic health problems and residents of long-term care facilities among others to get the flu shot because they may be a little more susceptible to the flu.
