Flu season picking up steam
PRINCETON — Though the United States has had its slowest start in 29 years with the respiratory flu season, things are looking up, or rather down in this case, when it comes to increased reports of flu activity.
The Department of Communicable Disease Control (DCDC) has announced flu activity has picked up in February after a very slow start to the 2011-12 flu season. Fortunately, the majority of respiratory flu viruses analyzed are included in this year’s vaccine, the CDC stated in its recent report.
On Monday, Katie Main, director of health promotions for the Bureau/Putnam County Health Department, said flu vaccinations are still available to the public through the health department. Appointments should be made by calling the health department. The cost is $25 for adults and $10 for children with Medicare accepted for adults and Medicaid accepted for children.
