The Southeastern Idaho Public Health office in Preston will hold flu clinics this Thursday and Friday in the mornings and all day on Thursday, Oct. 3, at the office, 42 W. 100 S.
With flu and cold season upon us, public health officials at SIPH would like to remind the public of simple measures they can take to prevent or mitigate the spread of flu and cold viruses, according to Tracy McCulloch, with the agency’s Pocatello office.
She said several simple measures can prevent the spread of flu and colds. They include:
• Get an influenza vaccine. It is your best protection against becoming seriously ill with flu.
• Wash your hands with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hand cleaners are also effective, but thorough hand washing is best.
