Good time to get your flu shot

Influenza and COVID-19 have similar symptoms and likely will spread simultaneously this year. All the more reason to get a flu shot, say public health authorities. South Dakota Secretary of Health Kim Malsam-Rysdon says the department has seen a decrease in the number of people who’ve been vaccinated for the flu…especially in the vulnerable 64 and older age group.

Each year, an average of 48 South Dakotan deaths are reported to the Department of Health following influenza infections.
