Don't have your flu shot? It's time to get it

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A warning from state health officials. Get your flu shot!

It's recommended for everyone 6 months and older.

But experts say it's especially important for young kids, pregnant women and people 65 and older.

You should definitely get one if you have asthma, diabetes or other high-risk conditions.

The flu vaccine is widely available right now, officials say.

And remember some basic hygiene, too.

Cover your mouth when coughing or sneezing, stay home from work or school if you're sick, and wash your hands frequently.
