• About the Flu

    Influenza (also known as the flu) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by flu viruses. It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. The flu is different from a cold. The flu usually comes on suddenly. People who have the flu often feel some or all of these symptoms: fever and/or chills, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle or body aches, headaches and fatigue (tiredness).

  • Who should get a flu shot?

    The CDC recommends that everyone 6 months of age and older get an annual seasonal flu vaccine, as well as people who are at a higher risk for serious complications. Those at a greater risk include pregnant women, anyone with asthma, diabetes, chronic heart and lung disease, or other chronic health conditions. Parents, caregivers of infants and toddlers, and anyone who lives with or cares for someone at high risk for complications should also get the vaccine.

  • Where can I get the flu shot?

    During flu season, flu vaccines are offered in many locations, not just here at the health department. This includes doctor's offices, pharmacies, clinics, and other places of business.
