GREENFIELD — Next week is National Influenza Vaccination Week, but Hancock County residents can get a jump on preventing disease this winter.

The Hancock County Health Department is offering free flu shots to adults every Friday as long as supplies are available. Eligible adults are anyone 19 years of age and older; appointments are not necessary.

“Our goal is to lessen disease in our county,” said Beth Burkhardt, public health nurse.

Burkhardt says she has about 100 vaccines left and the shots will be distributed for free until they run out.  The department is encouraging residents to get their vaccines now, before the flu starts going around.
