Hoosiers Encouraged To Take Steps To Prevent Flu

State health officials say Hoosiers shouldn’t get complacent over a mild start to the flu season and should ensure that everyone in their families who are eligible is vaccinated against the flu and its potentially deadly complications. This week is National Influenza Vaccination Week and highlights the importance of getting a flu vaccine. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Indiana State Department of Health recommend everyone 6 months and older to get a flu vaccine annually. To find a location that provides flu shots in your community, check with your local health department or visit the flu shot locator at www.StateHealth.in.gov.
