The Henry and Stark County Health Departments are pleased to announce

that they have received their supply of "Seasonal" flu vaccine and they are sponsoring Fall Flu Clinics at various sites. According to the CDC, flu activity most

commonly peaks in the US in January or February; so this is a great time to

get your seasonal flu shot. These clinics are for adults 18 years of age

and older only.

The Health Department is pleased to be offering this year's flu shot at

a reduced rate of $22. In addition, flu & pnueumonia shots may be

administered at no-charge to those who have Medicare Part-B and some

insurance plans are accepted. You must, however, bring your Medicare card

with you in order to receive the shots. The pneumonia shot will be

available at these clinics at a cost of $70 or at no-charge with your

Medicare card.

The Health Department notes that it is important to be protected against

the flu virus; as influenza epidemics are unpredictable. The 2012-2013 flu

vaccine will protect against influenza A/California (H1N1 -like virus),

A/Victoria (H3N2-like virus), and influenza B/Wisconsin 2010-like (Yamagata

lineage) antigens.

RaeAnn Tucker-Marshall, Public Information Director notes, "We are

encouraging everyone 6 months of age and older to get vaccinated against the

flu this year. People at high risk of serious flu complications are

strongly encouraged to be vaccinated. These "at-risk" persons include small

children, pregnant women, people with chronic health problems like asthma,

diabetes, smokers, heart and lung disease, health care workers, and people

65 years and older."

The Health Department will be giving Seasonal Flu vaccinations at these

times and locations:

vaccine or you may call the Health Department at 852-0197 and a home health
