Nov. 27 Marks National Influenza Immunization Week

Wednesday November 22, 2006

Louisville Metro Health Department Offers Numerous Walk-In Clinics

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (November 22, 2006) The Louisville Metro Health Department will offer flu shots without appointment to anyone 6 months of age or older who wants to avoid getting the flu this winter. Shots will be available at the Health Department’s main office at 400 E. Gray Street 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday, November 27 through Friday December 1.

November 27 through December 3 is National Influenza Vaccination Week.  

“Flu season normally peaks in our area in February and in some years even later,” said Metro Health Director Dr. Adewale Troutman. “It takes about two weeks for your immune system to develop antibodies after you have gotten a flu shot. Getting a shot in December is adequate time to protect you from the flu,” said Troutman.
