To the Editor:
Flu season is picking up and this year the flu vaccine is reported 65 percent effective. Flu vaccine is available at the physician’s offices of Community Care, Davis Health Systems and St. Joseph’s Hospital.
It is also available at the Upshur County Health Dept., CVS, Kroger’s, Rite Aid/Walgreens, and Walmart pharmacies.
While getting your flu shot, update your tetanus and whooping cough immunity with a tDap shot.
Come on, Mountaineers, you are tough!
Protect yourself, your family and the community by getting immunized this and every year.
