Send a link to a friend

[November 11, 2009]  The Logan County Department of Public Health is currently offering seasonal and H1N1 influenza vaccines. The seasonal flu vaccine is being offered to anyone 64 years and older. The 2009 H1N1 flu vaccine is being offered to the following priority groups:

  • Pregnant women with a doctor's order

  • People who live with or care for children younger than 6 months of age

  • Health care and emergency medical services personnel with direct patient contact

  • Children 6 months through 24 years of age

  • Anyone 25 through 64 years old with an underlying health condition, excluding hypertension

The seasonal and H1N1 flu vaccines may be obtained during walk-in clinic hours Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. until 4 p.m.

To help reduce the spread of influenza, remember the three "C's":

  • CLEAN your hands frequently with warm soap and water or an alcohol-based hand gel.

  • COVER your cough or sneeze with a tissue or use your elbow, not your hands.

  • CONTAIN your germs by staying home when sick until your fever is gone without the use of fever-reducing medications.

For more information, visit www.flu.gov and www.lcdph.org or call the Logan County Department of Public Health at 217-735-2317.
