A big reminder today from area health officials that it’s not too late to get your flu shot.  News comes from the Kent County Health Department among others as the Centers for Disease Control reports flu is now widespread throughout Michigan.

“Even though the flu shot does not always prevent the flu, it really can lessen the severity and the duration. And there’s still time to get your flu shot, if you haven’t done so.”
