The flu and common cold have similar
symptoms, but the flu tends to be more severe. It can be difficult
to tell the difference between the two. Your health care provider
may choose to give you a test within the first few days of illness
to determine whether or not you have the flu.
Flu symptoms include the following:
100 degrees F or higher fever or
feeling feverish (not everyone with the flu has a fever).
Cough or sore throat.
Runny or stuffy nose.
Headaches or body aches.
Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea (most common in children).
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.
