For the past four years, First District Health Unit has visited schools to administer flu shots.
Today more flu vaccinations were offered to the youngest of school children.
The First District Health Unit gave flu vaccinations at Head Start this morning.
The vaccinations were available through a shot or nasal spray based upon the preference of the parents.
The First District Health Unit Immunization Coordinator says preschool kids are an important group to target for flu vaccinations.
(Melissa Fettig, First District Health Unit)"These are our very youngest school aged kids. These are two, three, four, down to one-and-a-half. They're the most vulnerable and high-risk for complications really to influenza.
This was the First District Health Unit's second time delivering flu shots at Head Start.
One parent called the vaccination process at Head Start a convenient one-stop shop and says she's looking out for her daughter's health.
(Misty Smith, Head Start Parent)"Lately, there's been some serious flu bugs going around and, really, it just hurts your heart to see a little one enduring something like that, so more it's for her benefit, but also, it's to keep other kids safe too because once you get the flu it just spreads like wildfire."
Fettig says the First District Health Unit offers flu shot clinics on a walk-in basis.
