Special thanks to Stephanie Oakley, RNfrom the Bethlehem Health Bureau for a very informative program and the administration of the latest flu vaccines. 
Stephanie's talk focused on what you need to know to protect yourselves and others.
 
What You Need to Know
•The best way to prevent getting the flu this year is to get vaccinated!
•Everyone 6 months of age or older should get vaccinated every flu season.
Even though flu season does not start until October, the vaccine could take up to 2 weeks to achieve full effect so it’s best to get the vaccine as soon as it becomes available.
•Besides getting the flu vaccine, the best way to prevent the flu is by washing your hands and staying away from sick people to prevent germs from spreading.
      Note: to transmit the flu, you must have it! Please adopt the "HERD IMMUNITY" mentality - the more people getting vaccinated, the greater protection to everyone!
 
The presentation is available to review on our MSR website under the DOWNLOADS section "FLU WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW".
Please take this opportunity to educate yourself and others. 
 
The information was quite sobering especially to so many of us considered "seasoned Rotarians!"
 
Check with your Primary Care Provider if in doubt.
