It's not too late for a flu shot

The Gwinnett County Health Department reminds you that it’s 2018 but you should still get your annual flu shot. Flu season can run as late as May and getting a flu shot is still the best way to avoid flu or at least minimize its effects. No appointment is necessary at these locations and they accept most major insurance. Visit www.GNRHealth.com for more information.
