  • Why Flu Shots are Important

    vaccine to prevent
    Influenza is a serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and sometimes even death. Every flu season is different, and influenza infection can affect people differently. Even healthy people can get very sick from the flu and spread it to others. Over a period of 31 seasons between 1976 and 2007, estimates of flu-associated deaths in the United States range from a low of about 3,000 to a high of about 49,000 people. During a regular flu season, about 90 percent of deaths occur in people 65 years and older. “Flu season” in the United States can begin as early as October and last as late as May. During this time, flu viruses are circulating at higher levels in the U.S. population. An annual seasonal flu vaccine (either the flu shot or the nasal spray flu vaccine) is the best way to reduce the chances that you will get seasonal flu and spread it to others. When more people get vaccinated against the flu, less flu can spread through that community.   INFORMATION FROM:  http://www.cdc.gov/flu/protect/keyfacts.htm
  • Prepare for Cold Tallahassee Weather

    Tallahassee State Capitol buildings Florida USA
    As the Tallahassee area readies for winter, residents and visitors should remember the “Five P’s” of cold weather safety. The “Five P’s” are: Protecting People, Protecting Plants, Protecting Pets, Protecting Exposed Pipes, and Practicing Fire Safety.
    The following actions are important safety measures:
    • Stay indoors and use safe heating sources.
    • Be aware of the fire danger from space heaters and candles. Keep such devices away from all flammable materials such as curtains and furniture, and install recommended smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
    • Indoors: Do not use charcoal or other fuel-burning devices, such as grills that produce carbon monoxide. Install at least one carbon monoxide detector per floor in your home.
    • Outdoors: Stay dry and in wind-protected areas.
    • Wear multiple layers of loose-fitting, warm clothing.
    • Drink non-alcoholic fluids.
    • Shelter or bring animals inside, especially pets.
