It's time to get your flu shot.

According to WILX, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released that urgent message just a couple days ago, September 28th. They're really urging people to get the vaccine because last year was one of the worst flu season's we've had in a while; "an estimated 80,000 Americans died of flu and its complications last winter - the disease's highest death toll in at least four decades."

If you don't want to go through the hassle of scheduling a visit to see your doctor, there are plenty of places throughout the Lansing area to get your flu shot. To see the place closest to you to get a flu shot, click here. And read more about this year's potential flu season here.
