[December 19, 2013]  It is important to protect young children from the flu by watching what they put in their mouths. Teething rings, pacifiers and other "mouth" toys should be cleaned frequently. It is also important to frequently wash your infant's or young child's hands with soap and water because small children are always sucking their hands or fingers.

Since babies under the age of 6 months can't get flu shots, parents, family and caregivers should get flu shots to protect the infant from the flu.

The hours for vaccines at the Logan County Department of Public Health, 109 Third St., are Monday through Thursday, 7:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. No appointment is required.

The cost of the seasonal flu shot is $27 for adults and children with health insurance that covers vaccines, $23.75 for children 6 months through 18 years of age who have no health insurance or health insurance that doesn't cover vaccines, and free to those with a Medicaid or Medicare card.
