Health department has flu shots available

The Branch-Hillsdale-St. Joseph Community Health Agency wishes to remind the public that October is the optimal month to receive a flu shot.

Kali Nichols, director of personal health and disease prevention, said an annual, seasonal flu vaccine is the best way to help protect against flu.

She said flu vaccination is recommended for anyone ages six months and up. Also, she noted, it is an important preventative tool for people with chronic health conditions.

Shots are now available Mondays in Branch County and Tuesdays at the agency’s Three Rivers office.
