Doctors in our area are already reporting the first few cases of the flu.

That's why they want you to get your flu shot now rather than later.

You may have already seen the signs of the season and walked right by.

But doctors are already seeing the symptoms of the flu.

A lot of people think October is the time to get the shot, but doctors are encouraging everyone to roll up their sleeves now and get a flu shot, especially children and senior citizens.

The vaccine is covered by most insurance companies.

If you don't have health insurance, most pharmacies and doctors’ offices are offering flu shots at a low cost.
