Flu Shots

In Health, Kid Stuff on January 3, 2013 at 11:55 am reports today that a third child has died in Michigan from the flu, reflecting a nationwide increase in flu cases. According to Mlive, you and yours should be protected from the three most common strains of flu if you get vaccinated. So: help your family and your community stay healthy by getting your flu shot.

You can get yours at your doctor’s office or at the Prescription Shop, 10587 Main Street, Honor (call ahead to see if the nurse is there, 231‐325‐2735; $29), or by calling Sheila Pritchard at the Benzie Leelanau District Health Dept,  231-882-4409, for an appointment. The Health Department is not offering shots for adults this year, only for children with Medicaid (free) or uninsured children ($10 administration fee).
