Greetings From the Clinic!
Hello from the WWB School Based Clinic!
It’s that time of year again….flu season! We encourage you and your family to get a flu vaccine. There are many reasons to get a flu vaccine. Flu vaccination can reduce your risk of flu illness, doctors’ visits, and missed work and school due to flu. Even if you are vaccinated and still get sick, flu vaccine can reduce the severity of your illness. Our School Clinic has flu vaccines available for children up to 18 years old. Give us a call at (859)381-3172 if you would like your child to get a flu vaccine or have any questions. Here are some additional helpful tips to share with your family on how to prevent the flu and other contagious illnesses:
-Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
-Cover your cough and sneeze with a tissue or with your arm
-Try to stay away from others that are sick
-Stay home from work/school if you are sick until you feel better
-Encourage healthy habits such as getting enough sleep, eat healthy foods and getting exercise
