With Flu Season in Full Swing, It's Never Too Late To Get Your Flu Shot

Full Story

Tallahassee, Fla. During National Influenza Vaccination Week (NIVW), the Florida Department of Health continues to urge Floridians to get their flu vaccine to protect against infection and help prevent the spread of seasonal flu to others. It is never too late to get your flu shot. While most cases of flu are mild, there are exceptions. The department confirmed in late November the first influenza-associated pediatric death of the 2017-2018 flu season in an unvaccinated child.
