No appointment is necessary to get a flu shot, according to the health department. Office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

“Influenza right now is disproportionately affecting young adults, ages 20 to 40, with no underlying conditions, which is unlike the groups usually most vulnerable,” said Dr. Helen Morrow, health officer for the health department.

Flu deaths are mounting in Tennessee. Twelve people in the Nashville area have died this flu season, according to The Tennessean. The Tennessee Department of Health only tracks flu deaths of children and expectant mothers.
