Health Officials Prepare for Flu Season

October 1st, 2014 by WCBC Radio

The flu season begins Wednesday, and health officials are preparing for this year's flu season by recommending flu vaccines. Two options are available – either the flu shot, or the nasal flu mist. Last year, local health officials say the first case in Maryland was reported on October 3rd, and in Pennsylvania on the 19th. Allegany County Health Officer Dr. Sue Raver says that in addition to getting the vaccine, there are several other, common sense steps you can take to help stave off the flu.
