HART – District Health Department #10 is helping communities prepare for the upcoming flu season by offering flu vaccines to children, adults and seniors.
“Flu season is unpredictable – even healthy people can become seriously ill,” states a DHD #10 press release. “The best way to protect yourself and your family against influenza is to get an annual flu, vaccine and the time to do so is now.”
