Fight the Flu!
With the cooler temps and fall weather, flu season is upon us. Although Madison County has no lab-confirmed flu cases yet, there have been confirmed cases in other parts of Kentucky.
If you haven't gotten your flu shot, there's no time like the present! In addition to our health department clinics, many doctors offices offer flu vaccine, as well as walk-in clinics and pharmacies in Madison County. The vaccine is available in various forms, including the intranasal flu mist, trivalent (protects against three strains), quadrivalent (protects against four strains), intradermal, and high dose (for seniors over age 65). Call the location of your choice for more information about the types of flu vaccine that are available.
MCHD monitors influenza activity in our community each flu season. For more information about the current 2014 influenza season, click here.

Staying in Shape Has Never Been Easier!
