Everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccine each year, according to the Minnesota Department of Health.

Minnesota health officials said Tuesday that many more schools are reporting influenza outbreaks, a day after hundreds of students in the Shakopee district called in sick with the flu or flu-like illnesses.

More than 300 students at Shakopee's West Middle School were absent with flu-related illnesses or flu symptoms - about 28% of the student body, according to a notice posted on the district's website. Another 100 students were out with flu-related illnesses at Sun Path Elementary, which has a total enrollment of 593.
