BROWARD COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT ENCOURAGES THE PUBLIC
TO TAKE PRECAUTIONS AGAINST FLU
IT’S NOT TOO LATE TO GET A FLU SHOT
(BROWARD COUNTY, FL) – Though flu season has already started, the Broward County Health Department encourages unvaccinated residents and visitors to get vaccinated against influenza (flu). Compared with most other viral respiratory infections, such as the common cold, influenza infection often causes a more severe illness, and at times can lead to death. It is not too late to get a flu shot and we encourage everyone 6 months and older to get vaccinated against the flu. Flu vaccine is available through healthcare providers, local retail outlets, and pharmacies.
The flu is a contagious disease, caused by the influenza virus, and spreads to others when infected persons cough, sneeze or talk.
“The best way to prevent the flu is to get a flu shot,” said Dr. Paula Thaqi, Director of the Broward County Health Department. “We strongly encourage everyone 6 months and older to get vaccinated against the flu.”
Individuals at high risk for flu complications include infants and young children, pregnant women, persons age 65 years and over, and persons of any age with chronic medical conditions. It is especially important for these individuals and their caretakers to get vaccinated.
Broward County Health Department encourages the following preventive steps for the flu:
