Got Your Flue Shot?

Public Health Nurse Karen tells us she is still busy with flu clinics, administering vaccine, tentatively waiting for our supplies of seasonal flu vaccine to increase. She also reminds us, “Do not forget  good hand washing, coughing and sneezing in the sleeves of your shirts, avoiding persons who are sick, staying home when you are sick.”

Karen also suggests getting the seasonal flu vaccine and the H1N1 vaccine as soon as possible noting that “We are in the high risk group for seasonal flu just because of our age…I count myself in that group!” While age alone does not put us in the high priority group for H1N1 adults with underlying medical conditions and will need to be immunized with H1N1 after pregnant women, children, and health care workers.
