Health Director says "get a flu shot."

Cheyenne, Wy – The Director of the Wyoming Department of Health is urging people who have not gotten an H-1-N-1 flu shot to get one. Doctor Brent Sherard says there is plenty of the flu vaccine available, and while the number of people with H-1-N-1 is down, he says the virus could flare up again.
"We want people to understand that this is a new situation. That we really don't know what will happen in the next few months."
Sherard says vaccines are the best way to prevent the flu. He adds that it is important for people to continue to be vigilant about staying home when they are sick and performing good personal hygiene.
