Need a flu shot? Here's how to get one

Kentucky health officials urge you to get a flu shot

Getting a vaccine is especially important for young children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with chronic health conditions. "We know that nationally, 80 percent of the pediatric deaths were in children who were not vaccinated against the flu".

The Indiana State Department of Health is urging anyone, who hasn't received their flu shot yet, to get one now.

If you cannot make it, please call our Public Health Nursing Office at 203-256-3150, to see if you can schedule an appointment to get your flu shot. Antiviral drugs may shorten the duration or lessen the severity of the flu if started within 48 hours of the onset of symptoms. Studies have also shown that if someone gets sick while vaccinated, they have less severe illness, reduce their risk of being hospitalized, and spend fewer days in the hospital when they are hospitalized. These remedies can help you recover quicker, and can potentially prevent you from being hospitalized with flu complications. This flu vaccine was made just for senior citizens to give them better protection from the flu while covering 4 common strains of the flu virus.
