Health Department Offers Flu Shots

If you want to avoid the sneezing, fever, and body aches associated with the flu, doctors say now would be a good time to get a flu shot. The Lexington-Fayette County Health Department announced Thursday that it is once again offering flu shots at the Public Health Clinic North on Newtown Circle. The vaccine is recommended for people ages 6 months and older. 

It costs $25 at the health department, which accepts Medicaid, cash, credit cards, and some insurances. 

Lexington had 305 confirmed cases of the flu last year. The health department provided more than 5,500 flu vaccinations.
