ACROSS MISSISSIPPI — Seasonal flu shots are now available at all Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) county clinics. The seasonal flu vaccine is recommended for anyone age six months and older.
“This year it is important for everyone to get both the seasonal and swine flu vaccines,” said MSDH state epidemiologist Dr. Mary Currier. “Seasonal flu usually peaks in January through March in Mississippi, but it sometimes reaches high levels as early as December. Mississippians should take the threat of any type of flu very seriously.”
Seasonal flu vaccinations for adults are $25. Those 18 and under can receive seasonal flu vaccinations for $10. Medicare and Medicaid recipients are asked to bring their cards with them to the clinic.
