It's that time of the year — time to roll up your sleeves for a shot in addition to the Covid-19 vaccine.

Now is the time to begin getting flu shots. 

Anita Walden, chief of nursing at Decatur-Morgan Hospital, says everyone needs to protect themselves this flu season.

"Flu season is here," Walden said. "Please remember to get your flu shots. That is very important and please remember to come and get your vaccinations. That is proven to be very effective."

Walden and other health officials expect the number of flu cases to rise over the upcoming weeks.
