When and where will the county health department offer flu shots here in the month of October?
The Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department will begin administering flu shots the week of Oct. 14, said Barbara Schnitker, director of nurses. The first round of shots are intended for people at high risk of severe illness, people who can give the flu to those at high risk and children receiving their first flu shot. Younger, healthy people are asked to wait until November. October and November are optimal months for receiving flu shots.
