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.
You can call our health clinics at 859-623-7312 (Richmond) or 859-986-1192 (Berea) for more information or to schedule an appointment. You can also visit the CDC's seasonal influenza site for more info.
Freedom From Smoking® Online, or FFS Online, is a program specifically designed for adults who want to quit smoking. It’s an adaptation of the American Lung Association’s gold standard, group clinic that has helped thousands of smokers to quit for good.
FFS Online does not begin with quitting. The program takes you through several lessons first, ensuring that solid information about preparing to quit is given before Quit Day. Go ahead and progress through the lessons and modules until you complete the entire program. The beauty of FFS Online is that it can be accessed day or night, seven days a week, on any schedule you choose.
