Getting Your Flu Shot: Health Dept. Offers Shots on Senior Day at the State Fair

JACKSON, Miss.–If you haven’t gotten your flu shot yet, the Mississippi Dept. of Health is offering the shot as part of Senior Day at the State Fair. It will be Wednesday from 9 to noon, at the north entrance of the Mississippi Coliseum.

The shots are $30 for the regular flu vaccine and $55 for the high-dose flu vaccine (for those 65 and older). Seniors are asked to please bring a photo ID and your proof of insurance to the event.

This year the CDC has said that flu shots will be more effective, covering a better protion of the flu strain than last year.
