Clermont County Public Health joins the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Ohio Department of Health in encouraging everyone to get their annual flu shot as part of National Influenza Vaccination Week, December 7-14th. “National Influenza Vaccination Week provides an important opportunity for our community to tell people how important it is for people to get an annual flu shot,” says Julianne Nesbit, Health Commissioner at Clermont County Public Health. “Getting vaccinated is the single most important way to protect not only themselves but their loved ones as well.”
Influenza can be a serious respiratory illness that can cause hospitalization and death. Anyone can get sick with flu. Certain people, however, are most at risk for serious complications:
Everyone ages 6 months and older is recommended to get the 2014-2015 flu vaccine, with rare exceptions. Flu vaccination can reduce doctor visits, work and school absences and help prevent hospitalizations and even deaths.
Protect yourself and your family from getting the flu by getting vaccinated!
To ask questions about the flu vaccine or to schedule an appointment with Clermont County Public Health for vaccination, please call (513) 735-8400.
