In Bay County, inmates identified as high risk could also receive a flu shot this season.

The Corrections Corporation of America runs the Bay County Jail, the Annex, and the Bay Corrections Facility. A spokesperson says this year, they asked for flu shots for high risk inmates, but are still waiting for them to arrive.

Prisoners are allowed the same opportunity to the vaccine as the rest of the population, but are also waiting like everyone else.
