There is still time to protect yourself from the flu and the North Shore Health Department has scheduled two additional clinics to help you out.
The first clinic is on Nov. 4, Election Day, so that it will be possible to protect your health after you cast your vote. Just visit the Health Department in the Brown Deer Village Hall at 4800 W. Green Brook Drive anytime from 7:00 AM to 8:00 PM. No appointment is necessary.
A second clinic has been scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 12 from 8:30 AM to 6:00 PM. This clinic is also at the Brown Deer Village Hall and, again, no appointment is necessary.
Please call the Health Department at 371-2980 if neither of these clinic times fit your schedule.
The Centers for Disease Prevention and Control continues to recommend a flu shot for everyone over the age of six months and there is ample supply of flu vaccine this year. The vaccine is considered to be a "good match" for the predominant influenza virus that is circulating. Vaccination against the flu is a simple and very effective way to protect yourself from serious illness. In addition, people around you will benefit because you won't be spreading the flu to others.
Please take the time out of your very busy schedule to do something for your health. It's more important than you might think!
