The flu season has hit across New Jersey and the nation earlier than usual. In addition, the H3N2 flu strain circulating is more likely to cause serious illness than usual.
This year's vaccine is your best protection against the flu. Montgomery Health Department encourages you to get your flu shot now if you haven't already done so. To help, the Health Department has scheduled a flu vaccination clinic on Monday, January 14 from 3:30-6:30 PM at the Otto Kaufman Community Center, 356 Skillman Road. The clinic is open to ages 4 to 104. (Under 18 must be accompanied by a parent).
To make an appointment, e-mail your name(s), date of birth, address and phone number to email@example.com , and you will be assigned an appointment in the order received. Walk-ins will be accepted if extra vaccine is available. The clinic is free; donations to defray the cost will be accepted.
While prevention is the best medicine, here is further information from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention on taking care of yourself or a family member sick with the flu. http://www.cdc.gov/flu/whattodo.htm
