(Glenwood) The Mills County Public Health Office says they have limited quantities of flu vaccine and are offering clinics at their office this Thursday and Friday. Sheri Bowen, of Mills County Public Health says the single best way to prevent and “protect your” family from the flu is to get a flu shot.
“We have been promoting that since the beginning of October and this is still an effective means of prevention,” stated Bowen. “It’s not too late and we would encourage folks within their communities to access this.”
Bowen says flu shots are recommended for all children over 6 months, anyone 65-years of age and older, anyone with a chronic health condition, and parents and caregivers of children under 6-months of age.
“As you can tell by that long list of people, it is just good prevention tool for everybody and the above list is the people that are most at risk,” said Bowen.
The flu clinics will be held from 9:00a.m.-11:00a.m. and 1:00p.m.-4:00p.m. on Thursday, January 24, and 8:30a.m. – 11:00a.m. on Friday, January 25.
The clinics will be held at Mills County Public Health at 212 Independence Street in Glenwood.
