GET YOUR FLU SHOT OR GET THE FLU… IT’S UP TO YOU

The flu season is not looking good here in the North Country… with nearly every county in the region reporting a sharp rise in the number of cases of influenza just over the past month. The Franklin County Public Health Department continues to urge everyone to get a flu shot. It’s better than getting the flu they say… with the most common side effects from the shot being simply some soreness, tenderness or swelling where the shot was given. In Malone, the health department is on West Main Street. Flu shots are also available at most pharmacies.
