For information on seasonal flu shot clinics, call the Department of Intercommunity Health Coordination at (610) 891-5311. The single best way to protect against the flu is to get vaccinated.  Vaccination might prevent hospitalization and death among persons at high risk.  Good health habits are also an important way to prevent the flu. 

The CDC recommends that people avoid close contact with people who are sick, stay home from work or school when you are sick, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing and wash your hands often. (See “Don’t Get Dogged by the Flu.”)For more information about seasonal influenza vaccinations, please contact the Department of Intercommunity Health Coordination at 610.891.5311 or visit the CDC Flu web site at www.flu.gov
