Have You Scheduled Your Flu Vaccination?

As the temperatures drop and the season changes to winter, cold and flu symptoms start to set in. Eagle View Community Health System Nurse Practitioner Jennifer Hand encourages individuals to schedule those vaccines:

“Flu started in September. It is important to get your flu vaccination, especially if you have underlying health conditions that put you more at risk for immunosuppressants. And COVID, it is important to get your COVID vaccine to help protect you against that and it can also help that if you do get COVID, it will help lessen your symptoms.”

Practice healthy habits this flu season: stay home if you are sick or have a fever, cover your mouth and nose, avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth, wash your hands frequently, and disinfect surfaces at home, work, or school.
