Welcome to North Shore Health Department North Shore Health Department Highlights 10/8/2019 We are a month into the 2019-2020 flu season. Flu or influenza is a serious disease that can lead to hospitalization or even death for some individuals. During last year’s flu season, 29 influenza related hospitalizations of North Shore residents were reported to the Health Department and there has been one this year already. Every flu season is different, which is why we recommend an annual seasonal flu vaccine as the best way to protect against the flu. Vaccination has been shown to lower the risk of flu-related illnesses, hospitalizations and even flu-related death. There are many vaccine options to choose from, but the most important thing is for all people 6 months and older to get a flu vaccine every year. If you have questions about which vaccine is best for you, talk to your doctor or other health care professional. If you have questions about this year’s flu season, the CDC has more information at: https://www.cdc.gov/flu/season/faq-flu-season-2019-2020.htm The North Shore Health Department is hosting a number of flu clinics this fall.
