Annual flu vaccines are recommended for everyone 6 months and older. Benefits from flu vaccination include fewer illnesses, doctors’ visits, and people missing work or school. Vaccination also prevents flu-related hospitalizations and deaths. While some of the viruses spreading this season are different from what is in the vaccine, vaccination can still provide protection and might reduce severe outcomes such as hospitalization and death.  If you have not been vaccinated yet this season, it’s not too late!

Our tips to stay healthy this flu season include #1 – Get vaccinated; and #2 – Take everyday actions to prevent the spread of germs. Everyday actions include:

  • Wash your hands often
  • Cover your nose and mouth when you sneeze
  • Stay home when you are sick
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth – germs spread this way.

In good health,

Kathy Luhn, Allen County Health CommissionerCommissioner Pic3
