Get Your Flu Shot Today!
Protect yourself and those you love.
The Department of Health in Holmes County recommends that all individuals six months of age and older receive the flu vaccination each year. It is especially important for pregnant women to be vaccinated due to the increased risk of complications associated with contracting the flu while pregnant. The flu vaccination is safe and will protect the mother, the unborn child, and will also help protect babies during the first months after birth.
Additional flue prevention steps include washing your hands often, keeping your hands away from your face and covering your mouth and nose with a tissue when sneezing or coughing. Symptoms of the flu include headache, fever, severe cough, runny nose or body aches. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, see your primary care provider immediately for guidance on treatment.
