2014 Healthy Family Tips

Shield Yourself from the Flu 

Protect yourself from this year’s strains.  We will have vaccine clinics on Sundays immediately after morning worship service on:

September 28th - October 5th

Remember good hand hygiene and covering your cough are the best ways, next to vaccination, to protect yourself from Influenza. Influenza protection is especially needed for our young children and our elderly.

You cannot get the flu from the vaccine.  However, if you are sick with cough, cold or runny nose with or without fever you should avoid getting the shot until you are well. 

Here’s to a healthy and blessed fall.  Continue to pray and meditate daily.
