Mesa County Health Department vaccinated 130 community members at an adult flu clinic Thursday, Oct. 22.
Flu season typically begins in October and runs through March with a majority of illnesses occurring between December and February.
It takes the body about two weeks to develop an immune response after the vaccination, so now is a great time to get vaccinated.
Call 248-6900 to make an appointment if you or your child need the flu vaccination.
