With the higher than normal number of flu cases, Grant County Health Officer Dr. Alexander Brzezny wants residents to know that flu vaccine is still your best protection. “The flu is in our communities year-long but is now increasing at significant numbers which tells us the seasonal epidemic of influenza has started,” states Dr. Brzezny. With holiday travel quickly approaching GCHD urges all residents 6 months and older to get their flu shot as soon as possible. Currently, there is no shortage of flu vaccine and it is widely available through clinics and pharmacies.
