OEM Tip of the Week: Fight Flu Before Flu Fights You
Flu season is here and Office of Emergency Management and Planning and the Albany County Department of Health remind all town residents to get flu shots this year. It is especially important for the following groups to get flu shots due to risk of complications:
People over 50
Children from age 6 months to five years
People with chronic medical conditions
Healthcare workers who provide direct patient care
By getting a flu shot you can protect yourself, as well as those around you. You can also stop the spread of flu in other ways:
Wash your hands frequently with soap and water
Cover your nose and mouth when sneezing and coughing
Stay home if you are sick with a fever and cough
