Milwaukee officials receive flu shots

On Tuesday,  Mayor Tom Barrett and Commissioner of Health Bevan K. Baker joined children and families at Neighborhood House of Milwaukee to share a message that getting vaccinated against the flu protects you, your family, and your co-workers. 

Influenza is among the most common contagious respiratory illness in the United States. Though common, it can be serious, leading to hospitalization and sometimes death. During the 2013-2014 flu season in Wisconsin, more than 260 people went to the hospital and two children died.  

The influenza vaccine is recommended for all individuals over 6 months of age, especially those at greatest risk for serious complications, including adults 65 and older, children younger than 5, and pregnant women.

If you would like to find a flu clinic near you, you can search by your zip code on the Wisconsin Department of Health Services website
