The Grundy County Health Department would like to remind everyone we're still offering adult and children's influenza vaccinations by appointment every week. "That's why getting vaccinated should be a top priority as people look for ways to protect themselves from the potentially serious effects of the flu", added Angela Patterson, Chief Nurse Practitioner Officer, MinuteClinic.

For questions about the flu vaccine, call your primary care physician. Symptoms include cough, fever, body aches and extreme exhaustion. Cover your cough and sneeze, avoid people experiencing flu symptoms, stay home when you feel sick and wash your hands often.

Influenza is a contagious disease caused by one of a number of related viruses. Getting a flu vaccine can reduce illnesses, doctor visits and missed work and school due to flu, as well as prevent flu-related hospitalizations.

County health departments across the state will be giving out free flu shots. Recently, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) released a report that more Americans were killed by the flu last year than at any time in 40 years. People can also become infected by touching surfaces or objects contaminated with influenza viruses and then touching their eyes, mouth or nose. Within one day you go from zero flu cases to 20.

The reason we get shots year after year is because different strains of influenza circulate the globe. Certain people are at greater risk for serious complications from the flu. The flu shot remains the best protection against influenza.

The flu clinic will take place on Saturday, December 8 and you can receive your flu shot from 9 AM - 12 PM (while supplies last) at our Public Health Nursing Office located at 100 Mona Terrace, Fairfield (in the white portable behind the Senior Center).
