Comanche County Health Department will offer flu vaccine beginning Monday, Oct. 1. Flu shots will be provided at no out of pocket cost to recipients. Those with insurance are asked to provide their card showing coverage.
Flu vaccination is recommended each year for everyone 6 months of age and older. When more people are vaccinated against the flu, there is less opportunity for flu to spread in families, schools and communities. The flu vaccine is formulated each year to keep up with flu viruses as they change. Also a yearly flu shot is needed because a person’s immune protection from being vaccinated decreases after a year, and yearly vaccination provides the best protection against the flu through the entire flu season.
Last flu season there were 291 deaths and 4,819 hospitalizations between September 2017 and May 2018. In addition to getting a flu shot, public health officials recommend the following prevention tips:
- Adopt a healthy lifestyle by eating nutritious foods, exercising regularly, and getting a full night’s rest.
- Wash hands frequently using soap and water, or alcohol-based products such as hand gels when hands are not visibly soiled.
- Use tissues to cover coughs and sneezes, then dispose of them and wash your hands immediately. When tissues are not readily available, cough into your sleeve, not your hands.
- Stay home from work, school and other public places when feeling ill.
Comanche County Health Department will provide flu vaccine Monday through Friday, 8:30-11:30 am, 1:00-5:00 pm. For more information, call the Comanche County Health Department at 580-248-5890.
