Summer isn't even over yet... but Sangamon County health officials are already planning ahead for flu season.
The county's seasonal influenza vaccination program begins next Monday at the health department offices on South Grand Avenue East. The county will also hold flu shot clinics at locations around the county, starting Tuesday.
And in a first this year, the county will accept most insurance plans for flu shots and other clinical services. County health director Jim Stone says the county will offer several different types of flu vaccination, including one that is intended to protect against four common flu strains.
