FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - The Fort Wayne - Allen County Health Department is reminding people to get the annual flu vaccine.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said anyone 6 months and older should get the flu shot.
The health department said the vaccine changes yearly because different strains of the flu are common around the world.
"The vaccine this year has two or three of the same strains from last year because they are still seeing those to be the most prevalent causing the flu," said Susan Cisney, Fort Wayne - Allen County Health Department Director Clinical Services.
Flu shots are available at most pharmacies or your doctor.
