MIDLAND - The Midland Health Department still has some flu shots available.

You can get the shot Monday through Friday from eight a.m. til four-30 in the afternoon at the Health Department.

The flu is not something the state generally tracks, but the Department of State Health Services says it has reached widespread status in the last couple of weeks with increases in flu-like illnesesses.

Some things you can do to protect yourself, besides getting a shot, wash your hands, cover your mouth and nose when you cough of sneeze, and stay home if you're sick.
