Flu Season EOH

Posted: Updated:

Nobody wants to get the flu.

The best way to prevent the aches, chills,and fever associated with the it, is to get a yearly vaccination.

Carla Burbidge has this week's Eye on Health.

It's that time of the year. Another flu season. The flu is highly contagious and you can do your part by getting the vaccine. It's recommended that almost everybody, young and old, get vaccinated.

Penny Hamilton, R.N. First District Health Unit "anyone six months or older we want to reduce the incidence in our community"

First District Health Unit has come -out with it's plan for immunizations. The first community clinic at the Minot auditorium is Sept. 28th from 9-2, then there is one set for Oct. 9th. First District serves several area counties and a full list of clinic dates and times is listed on the website. First District also provides flu shots to businesses, and schools districts in the area counties.

Penny " we hear constantly, I am glad I got a flu shot, that it prevents from even getting a cold

Hamilton says the cost of the vaccine keeps increasing, but First District is doing it's best to keep costs down. The flu shot is 32-dollars, the mist is 45-dollars. Most insurance's and medicare can be billed. But the vaccine is your best protection , and it also helps prevent spreading the disease from person to person. For Eye on Health I'm Carla Burbidge.
