97.5 Y-Country Medical Minute – Flu Prevention
While fall is a time to enjoy the changing of the leaves, carving pumpkins and picking out your child’s Halloween costume, it’s also the start of Flu season. This week’s Y-Country Medical Minute quickly discusses ways to protect yourself and your family from the flu.
The flu shot is a vaccine that protects against the three or four influenza viruses.
Everyone 6 months of age and older should get the influenza (flu) vaccine each year. If you have questions to whether you should get a flu shot or not, please contact your primary care provider.
It is suggested, individuals receive the flu shot before the end of October.
The Cassopolis Family Clinic and Niles Community Health Center will begin offering Flu Shots on Tuesday, October 1st. Call ahead to schedule an appointment.
