Health Officials Urge Flu Vaccination This Year

Local Health Departments are urging you to get your flu shot in advance of the upcoming flu season. Experts say that the vaccine should be much more effective this year, after last year’s particularly nasty strain proved somewhat resistant to most vaccinations. Health Officials also say that you can take preventative measures such as washing your hands and covering your mouth when you cough. The Jackson County Health Department will be providing the vaccine on a walk in basis during normal business hours starting on Monday.
