The Shiawassee County Health Department is urging county residents to get the flu vaccine. Getting the flu vaccine can reduce flu illnesses, doctor’s visits, and missed school or work days. The Center of Disease Control (CDC) recommends that community members get vaccinated by the end of October.

People at high risk for having flu complications include: young children, pregnant women, people with chronic health conditions and people 65 years and older.

It’s important to take preventative measures everyday to avoid the spread of germs.

• Avoid close contact with sick people.
• While sick, limit contact with others to prevent infecting them.
• Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before preparing food and after using the restroom.
• Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. Throw tissue in the trash and wash your hands after using tissue to cover nose or mouth.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Germs spread this way.
• Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs like the flu.

The Shiawassee County Health Department offers a weekly immunization clinic. To schedule an appointment, call 989-743-2356. The Health Department is hosting a special walk-in flu clinic at the Knights of Columbus in Owosso on October 17, 2019 from 9AM-11:30AM. Please have a photo ID and an insurance card. Cost for the flu vaccine without insurance is $30.
