Your best defense against the flu

  • Still to this day, the most important and effective defense against influenza is the flu shot.
  • We are in the middle of influenza season and every year there is a new strain.
  • Common symptoms include fever, chills, cough, nausea, vomiting and muscle aches.
  • Make sure you wash your hands frequently and if you do get the flu, it is important to keep yourself hydrated.
  • If you have not received your flu shot yet, make sure you contact Lawrence County Memorial Hospital to see what your options are! Call (618) 943-1000 or click here for more information!
