Free Flu Shots Available Friday

HSE urges Limerick people to avail of vaccine as flu season approaches

"As much as 10 percent of the US workforce will get the flu this year, with 17 million workdays lost as a result", said Cline.

As flu season approaches, and many people decide whether or not to get a flu shot, the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department wants to make sure everyone has the facts about the vaccine.

Flu season is starting to ramp up in parts of Texoma. The best way to do that?

Flu shots are available for $24 at both Health Division offices in Pontiac and Southfield.

That's not true, according to the health department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Sir James Dyson scraps electric auto saying project is 'not commercially viable'
The project employed 523 people, 500 of whom were in United Kingdom , and Sir James praised their "immense" achievements. In an email sent to all employees, Sir James said the company had unsuccessfully tried to find a buyer for the project.

But the flu is around all year, Epperson explained. Over the summer, all of the different influenza viruses that are out there were circulating, so no one knows exactly which strain will predominate in the upcoming season, he said.

It's important for everyone to get vaccinated, Epperson said.

"Flu can be a unsafe disease for people of all ages, even healthy children and adults", said State Health Commissioner Dr. Terry Cline. The Health Division participates in the Vaccines for Children Program which offers vaccines at no cost for eligible children up to 18-years-old. For some, these are the only symptoms experienced and last a few days, but for others, the flu can lead to an increase in symptoms experienced, leading to hospitalization and sometimes death in more serious cases.

If you come down with flu, you should see your doctor for a prescription for antiviral drugs, which can shorten the time you are sick, Epperson said. People who think that they may have the flu and are pregnant, have an underlying medical condition or who are extremely ill should contact their healthcare provider immediately.
