National Influenza Vaccination Week is a critical opportunity to remind everyone 6 months and older that there’s still time to protect themselves and their loved ones from flu this flu season by getting their annual flu vaccine if they have not already. Currently, flu activity is elevated across the country, so this week will serve to remind people that there is still time to benefit from the first and most important action in preventing flu illness and potentially serious flu complications: Get a Flu Vaccine TODAY. Flu vaccines are available at health departments in the North Georgia Health District in Cherokee, Fannin, Gilmer, Murray, Pickens, and Whitfield counties, and there is no appointment needed during regular clinic hours. The vaccine is for NO or LOW cost, depending on a person's healthcare coverage.
