The Eau Claire County Get the Shot campaign to encourage people to get a flu vaccination is underway.

Every year the flu spreads across the country, from person to person, among families and communities – especially during the holidays when people are traveling.

The campaign stresses that the flu shot prevents serious illness and influenza-related death and the flu shot protects other people – your family members, including older adults and young children, and the community as a whole.

Some individuals are at higher risk of flu complications such as pneumonia and bacterial infections. These include:

- Pregnant women

- People 50 and older

- People of all ages with chronic or long-term health problems

- People who are immunosuppressed

- Children under 5 years old
