Luckily, you can protect yourself and your family from the flu, while doing a bit of community service at the same time.

In 2016, more than 20,000 people were vaccinated at the Barnes-Jewish flu shot clinics.

The Liberty County Health Department has injectable flu vaccine available. Avoiding the flu can help people with diabetes stay on track and manage the condition.

With cold and influenza (flu) season upon us, the Urgent Care Association of America (UCAOA) is helping consumers get Urgent Care Prepared by encouraging them to visit their local urgent care center - the best place to receive flu vaccinations and other key winter healthcare services. According to a study published in 2015, covering the period 2000-2009, more than 2,000 deaths per year have been avoided thanks to vaccination, with an average efficiency of the vaccine in the elderly assessed at 35%.

The second clinic is set for Tuesday, from 4:00 6:00 Mercy Hospital Southwest located at 551 Shanley Court. Do not let the location fool you as this event is open to everyone in the community!

"The seasonal flu vaccine protects against the influenza viruses that research indicates will be most common during the upcoming season." said Laursen. No one will be turned away if they can't pay. We maybe had one case of flu reported by January, so when I woke up sneezing and coughing one morning it didn't even enter my mind that it could be the flu. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.

For those who are unable to attend the community flu vaccination event on October 14, the flu vaccine will be available at Carson City Health and Human Services' Immunization Clinic every Thursday between 8:30 and 11:30 a.m. and 1 to 4:30 p.m. on a walk-in basis.
