It's flu shot season around the Big Horns. Public health officers have officially started to push the flu shot onto the public.
Registered Nurse at Sheridan Public Health, Toby Granger, said if you think it's too early, think again.
Granger said that almost everyone should be vaccinated against the flu. The vaccines are now widely available around town, including the Public Health Clinic.
He said annual vaccinations are an invaluable way to stop yourself from getting sick.
The Public Health Clinic has conducted fundraising this year that will enable them to provide free flu vaccinations to all students in public schools throughout the county.
Granger said funding has come from several businesses within the community, and includes a $7500 challenge grant from the B.F. and Rose H. Perkins Foundation. Granger also pointed out information is available on the Sheridan County Public Health and CDC Websites. Public Health also has a new Facebook page, where they will be posting seasonal health updates.
