WILL COUNTY HEALTH OFFICIALS URGE FLU SHOTS

The new flu season is underway. Health experts say an important thing to remember right now is: A flu shot ALWAYS helps, no matter what type of flu season we are having. The serum in the flu shots available every year always targets what are expected to be the three most prevalent strains of influenza for that coming season. Early signs this flu season show very normal activity. If you have not received a flu shot yet, now is a good time. Call the Will County Health Department at 815-740-8143 or 877-942-5807 to make an appointment.
