Goodhue County Department of Public Health is hosting a series of "COVID-safe" influenza vaccine clinics this month for everyone age 6 months and older.

Getting the vaccinated against the flu can reduce the likelihood of staying home with COVID-like illness, which has similar symptoms with the flu, the health department said.
