SCPH: Get your flu shots before Halloween

Get your flu vaccine before Halloween! Although flu season lasts for months, experts say it’s best to get a flu vaccine by the end of October for the best protection. It’s especially important this year when the flu season kicked off as widespread in several areas of NY and nearly 600 cases were reported in a week.

216 COVID cases have been reported since last Monday’s update. Steuben remains in the medium COVID community level. Now’s a great time to get boosted (or start a primary series) before the holiday season. Our next COVID vaccine clinics are tomorrow, October 12 and Tuesday, October 25. Give us a call at 607-664-2438 to schedule an appointment or visit vaccines.gov to find other locations.
