PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - South Dakotans are starting to get flu shots for the upcoming season.

The Sioux Falls School District is offering free vaccinations to Roosevelt High School students on Wednesday.

Gov. Dennis Daugaard and first lady Linda Daugaard also got their shots this week and encouraged other South Dakotans to do the same.

Children account for a large number of flu cases and hospitalizations each year. The state provides free flu vaccine for all kids from 6 months through 18 years of age.
