Bowerston Public Library will be offering flu shots on Tuesday, October 25, 2011 from 10am to 12noon.  Trinity Hospital Twin City will be administrating the shots at a cost of $25 each.  No insurance will be accepted other than Medicare or Medicaid.  Walk ins are welcome, but if you would like to schedule an appointment or have any questions, please call the Library at (740) 269-8531. 

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) the best way to prevent the seasonal flu is to receive the flu vaccine.  The flu season can begin as early as October and last as late as May.  People who are at high risk for serious seasonal flu complications should receive a flu vaccine.  Some examples of people who fall into the high risk category are elderly, young children, people with chronic health conditions and people working in close contact with the public.

By receiving the seasonal flu vaccine and performing good health habits you will have less of a chance of suffering common flu symptoms such as fever, headache, extreme tiredness, dry cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose and muscle aches.  The CDC recommends the following good health habits for prevention:  avoid close contact, stay home when you are sick, cover your mouth and nose, clean your hands and avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
