FLU AND PNEUMONIA VACCINATIONS

The Butts County Health Department will be on site Thursday October 18th to provide Vaccinations for the Flu and Pneumonia

PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED, WALK- INS WITH NECESSARY DOCUMENTS WILL ONLY BE WORKED IN AS TIME PERMITS

Seniors (people over the age of 65) are at a higher risk than many other demographic groups of suffering from complications from the flu that last beyond the influenza virus being in your system. The flu can particularly impact seniors who have:

· Diabetes

· Kidney problems

· Heart problems

· Asthma

· Chronic lung disease

· An illness that causes them to take steroids or other medication like chemotherapy that weaken the immune system

· Liver problems

· Obesity issues

Pneumonia: Pneumonia is a bacterial respiratory illness featuring chest pain, coughs, shaking and sweating, and body temperatures lower than normal that can progress after having the flu. It’s the fourth leading killer among seniors, who may be able to prevent the disease post-influenza with a pneumonia vaccine. Seniors are at a greater risk of developing pneumonia and dying from it than any other demographic.
