Flu shots are available at all Hancock Medical clinics in Bay St. Louis, Diamondhead, and the Port Bienville Industrial Park. Seasonal flu vaccines protect against the three influenza viruses that research indicates will be most common during the upcoming season. Everyone 6 months and older should get a flu vaccine each year.
As recommended by The Center for Disease Control (CDC), getting an annual flu vaccine is the first and best way to protect yourself and your family from the flu. Flu vaccination can reduce flu illnesses, doctor visits, and missed work and school. It also can prevent flu-related hospitalizations.
Only injectable flu shots are recommended by CDC for use this flu season.
