(ABC 6 News) - It was "an ounce of prevention" for some kids in our area.
Mayo Clinic Health System conducted flu shot clinics at the school in LeRoy and at the Sacred Heart School in Adams. The vaccine might not prevent you from getting the flu, but if you do get it, the vaccine might make your case less severe. If you've ever been sick, you know how important that can be.
"It's really miserable," says Katelyn McCabe. "I had a really really bad cold and I had to stay home from school for three days."
In a typical year, the flu season runs from late Autumn until early Spring and peaks in January or February. The CDC recommends that everyone over six months of age get a flu shot every year. It says there should be plenty of vaccine to go around this season.
