Immunize Nevada Offers Flu Resource in InfluenceNevada.org
Reno, Nev. (November 1, 2017) – It is officially flu season, which means Nevadans of all ages could soon be coming down sick, missing work or school, or even worse. And the flu does not discriminate based on age, health, gender or anything else.
“Everybody over the age of 6 months needs a flu vaccine,” explained Immunize Nevada Executive Director Heidi Parker. “That is the number one way to protect yourself from the potentially deadly effects of the flu.” She adds that babies under the age of 6 months can be somewhat protected if their mothers received a flu shot while pregnant.
There are a number of opportunities to get protected and Immunize Nevada makes it easy with its Flu Vaccine Finder on its website, www.influencenevada.org, which allows Nevadans to input their zip code, generating a list of locations nearby offering the flu vaccine.
In addition to the Flu Vaccine Finder, the website offers an annual flu vaccine counter, tips and resources, a informative articles and even printable “germs” to color. Don’t worry, they’re cute!
Immunize Nevada is widely recognized as Nevada’s trusted resource for immunizations and community health for all ages by fostering education and statewide collaboration. Immunize Nevada’s vision is healthy communities across Nevada protected from vaccine-preventable disease. For more information, visit ImmunizeNevada.org. Creation of www.influencenevada.org was made possible by the Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health through grants from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
