ROCHESTER, Minn. - It's a virus that causes major aches and pains, nausea and even fatigue.
Last year, millions of people around the world were hit with flu, and it's about time for that season to hit again.
To reduce the impact, local health organizations, including Mayo Clinic, are creating a one-stop shop to protect kids from the flu.
Heidi Mason says this is a more convenient way to protect everyone against the virus and that's why students will be able to get the flu shot in school.
“We're going to take advantage of that. The easement, the convenience is so nice and they can get on top of this and get all the children vaccinated,” she said.
The deadline is next week September 11th at 11pm.
