Schley Health Department has flu vaccine available
Flu shots are available now at the Schley County Health Department.
The Center of Disease Control and Prevention of U.S. Department of Health and Human Services want to give you this information on the facts about the flu shots. You need a flu shot every year because a specific flu formula is made especially  to protect you against the most active strain of influenza that varies from year to year.
Children younger than six months old cannot have a flu shot. People with severe allergies cannot have the shot. People with chronic health conditions should definitely get the flu shot because they are more likely to have complications if they have flu, including pneumonia and heart attack.
Pregnant women should have the flu shot and be immunized for their own protection and to protect the baby up to four months after birth.
Babies, young children and the elderly are particularly vulnerable to the flu.
Be sure to get your flu shot now so you can protect yourself. Go by the Schley County Health Department and ask Kristy Smith, county health nurse, for the shot. Contact Kristy at 937-2208.
