Flu Shots Are The Single Best Way to Protect Against the Flu

Beat the Flu BugA flu vaccine is the first and most important step in protecting against flu viruses.  It is recommended that all people 6 months and older get a flu shot, especially those at higher risk of complications from the flu.  This includes children age 6 months to 18 years, pregnant women, people 50 years and older, anyone with chronic medical conditions, and people who live in nursing homes.

Oh! The things you can do when you don’t have the flu!

This year show the community what you will do when you don’t have the flu!  Post a photo of you participating in one of your favorite “flu season” activities to the Oneida County Health Department’s Facebook page, #donthavetheflu.  All participants will be entered into a drawing for one of five $20 Visa Gift Cards.  The drawing will take place on November 3rd, 2014.  Winners will be contacted via Facebook.
