Super Flu Shot recommended for those 65 and older

Posted: Updated:

The Green River District Health Department still has plenty of doses of the Fluzone high dose vaccine.

Fluzone high dose contains four times the normal dose of a regular flu shot.

The super flu shot is recommended for people ages 65 and older because they typically have a weaker immune system.

"I think right now is the prime time to begin thinking about it because we're coming upon the holiday season and they're going to be with family and friends and certainly we wouldn't want anyone to be ill during holidays," says Jude Gilmore of the GRDHD

The health department says many pharmacies and local physicians also carry the Fluzone shot.
