National Influenza Vaccination Week is wrapping up, with doctors hoping they got across the point that you need to get a flu shot. Flu season has already started and Indiana lags behind the rest of the nation when it comes to the number of people who have gotten a flu shot.
Now, the federal Centers For Disease Control is trying to get people to get a flu shot by pointing out how effective the vaccine was last year.
Health experts say nearly 80,000 hospitalizations were prevented as were some three-million doctor visits.
