The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends the single best way to protect yourself from the flu is to get vaccinated each year. Getting vaccinated and practicing good health habits can help limit the spread of germs and prevent respiratory illness like the flu. The Amherst Health Department and the Amherst Senior Center will hold a Flu Clinic for individuals sixty (60) years of age and older, and any individuals who are considered at high-risk for severe influenza infections. High-risk conditions include: asthma and other chronic lung disease, neurological conditions, heart disease, diabetes, diseases that interfere with immunity such as cancer or AIDs, or pregnancy. Pneumonia and Tetanus vaccines will also be available.
