Flu Season

By  | 

On Sunday, some tried to block the bug from heading their way by getting a flu and pneumonia shot. OSF St. Anthony was at Emmanuel Lutheran Church for an immunization clinic.

Experts say the flu season run from November to March so this is the best time to get protected. Nurses say even with the shot it's still possible to get the flu. You may have the bug and not know it.

If you would like to get a flu or pneumonia shot OSF will be at First Presbyterian Church on Nov 3, 2002 from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Nurses say you cannot get the vaccine while you are already sick.
