If you've ever had the flu, you know how bad it can be.
That’s why many doctors and local pharmacies are urging residents to get vaccinated.
Flu season has already started, and will continue through April.
To date, there has been 2 confirmed cases in Houston County, but because the flu isn’t a reportable illness, there could potentially be many more.
Health department officials say that getting the flu shot every year will decrease the chance of someone becoming sick.
The health department is giving out the shots at a discounted price.
If you would like to get vaccinated, you can head to a clinic.
One will be at Westgate recreational park on October 3rd and 4th from 8am to 4pm.
Officials want everyone to remember it can take up to 2 weeks for full protection of the vaccination to take effect.
