Flu season around corner; vaccines offered

Flu season around corner; vaccines offered”

Community Health Specialist Maria Otterholt at Oneida County's Health Department says you can get the flu anytime, but is most prominent in the fall and winter. This shot will protect against seasonal flu, says Joanne Steane, UW Student Health Service director.

Vaccines will be available for children and adults, including the high-dose immunization for those over age 65. You really want to make sure if you're in the higher risk catagory you come in.

Students can get a flu shot at the Student Health Service without an appointment.

The cost is $38 for most and $60 for high-dose vaccines.

Clinics traditionally start giving the vaccine in September to give the vaccine a few weeks to take hold before the arrival of flu season, traditionally January through March.

Republican Representative Christina Hagan says she hears from Ohioans who have been in their fields for decades, especially those in medical careers, who continue to lose their jobs or be penalized because they refuse to get a flu vaccine. She says the health department bills for Medicare, Medicaid and other programs. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone receive a flu shot.
