Maryland Department of Health urging Marylanders to get their flu shots

October 23rd, 2020 by WCBC Radio

The Maryland Department of Health (MDH) today released new digital and social media to support #FightFlu Fridays, an extension of its “Fight the Flu” campaign. The campaign, which initially launched on Oct. 13, encourages all Marylanders to become “flu fighters” and to get their flu shots as soon as possible, especially while COVID-19 remains a threat.  "It has never been more important to get a flu vaccine,” said Governor Larry Hogan. “The First Lady and I have already gotten our flu shots, and I want to again strongly encourage Marylanders to do the same. To get your flu shot, you can go to your doctor, your grocery store, your local pharmacy, or you can just reach out to your local health department.”
