Flu vaccination program kicks off Tuesday

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - It's flu season, and although state health experts are predicting a mild one, they're still recommending you get the vaccine.

Tuesday kicks off the Department of Health's flu vaccination program at 330 schools across the state. This year, students will be given one shot or nasal spray, which includes protection against the H1N1 virus.

State health experts say this year there is no vaccine shortage, and anyone over six months old can get the vaccine at various pharmacies around the state.
