Welcome To Allen County Public Health Website!
CDC recommends an annual flu vaccine for everyone 6 months and older. Some of the benefits of being vaccinated include fewer illnesses, doctors’ visits and missing work or school. If you have not been vaccinated yet this season, it’s not too late! Our tips to stay healthy this flu season include
#1 – Get vaccinated; and
#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
