Free flu shots
The Cocke County Health Department is offering flu vaccines at no charge to patients until vaccine supplies are depleted. Influenza activity is widespread in Tennessee, so it’s extremely important for anyone over six months of age to get a flu shot now. Cocke County Health Director Jana Chambers says the flu vaccine is especially important for infants, young children, pregnant women, adults over age 50 and for those with chronic medical conditions. Chambers says the flu shot remains the best protection we have against influenza. Appointments must be made to receive flu vaccine, and are now being scheduled at the clinic. “Getting a flu vaccine is the best way to protect yourself, family members and others from the flu and help keep our community healthy,” adds Chambers. ”We urge everyone who has not received a flu shot, to get one now.” She says it also is important to help prevent the spread of flu and other winter viruses by practicing good health habits: Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer; Cover your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing; Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth, and Stay home if you are sick. For more information about the flu and free flu vaccines, call the Cocke County Health Department at 423-623-8733.
