Shots Ready for Flu Season
"When you get the vaccine, it's getting your body geared up to fight, so that it has actually seen that before," explained the department's Heather Baer. "So that when, you know, two weeks later when you're exposed to the flu somewhere, your body says, 'Oh, okay, we've fought this before, we know how to fight it again,' and that's where it really comes into play."
In addition to the health department, Schnuck's and other local pharmacies also have flu vaccine.
