Welcome To Allen County Public Health Website!


Fight the flu!  Our top two tips to stay healthy this flu season are:

#1 – Get vaccinated

CDC recommends an annual flu vaccine for everyone 6 months and older. Some of the benefits of being vaccinated include fewer illnesses and doctors’ visits, and less missing of work or school.

#2 – Take everyday actions to prevent the spread of germs

  • Wash your hands often
  • Cover your nose and mouth when you sneeze
  • Stay home when you are sick
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth – germs spread this way.


In good health,

Kathy Luhn, Health Commissioner
